Yields: Makes about 3 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup(s) whole-wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon(s) coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) baking soda
  • 3/4 cup(s) (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup(s) packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup(s) (about 1 large) mashed ripe banana
  • 1 cup(s) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 8 ounce(s) semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped into 1/4-inch chunks
  • 1/2 cup(s) (about 2 ounces) coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together flours, salt, and baking soda in a small bowl; set aside. Put butter and sugars into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Reduce speed to low. Add egg and vanilla; mix until combined. Mix in banana. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in oats, chocolate chunks, and walnuts.
  2. Using a 1 1/2-inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies, rotating sheets halfway through, until golden brown and just set, 12 to 13 minutes. Let cool on sheets on wire racks 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire racks; let cool completely. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers up to 2 days.
