Slightly Healthier Chocolate Chip Cookies

Having been informed about the overly ripe bananas in the house and a request for cookies rather than muffins, I sought out a recipe for banana cookies. After seeing a few recipes, I decided to simply follow a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe and make some changes along the way. The result is a sweet, banana flavored cookie that has a bit of a cake or muffin-like texture. I would highly recommend them. Also, I'm sure plenty more substitutions could be made successfully making them healthier yet. They are awfully light in color having only white flour.

2 ripe bananas
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar packed
1/4 cup softened butter
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/4 cup flour
1 cup oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Bake 11 mins at 375 degrees.  Edges will get a touch golden. Yields 4 dozen cookies (+4) using a 2 tsp small cookie scoop. 

Before and after baking, they don't change too much.
