Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together oil, soy milk and vanilla in a separate bowl. Add wet mixture to dry ingredients; stir to combine. Fold in banana, walnuts and chocolate chips.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop dough onto pan with a small ice-cream scoop. Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown, turning baking sheet halfway through. Let cool on a wire rack.
  4. NOTE: Use this cookie base (minus the last 3 ingredients) as a blank canvas for other flavor variations. So instead of bananas, walnuts and chocolate chips, try one of the following: raisins and a pinch of cinnamon, dried blueberries with raw sugar sprinkled on cookies, dried cranberries and 1/2 teaspoon orange extract or slivered almonds and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract.
