I am a huge lover of bananas! I eat one every morning with my breakfast. One of my favorite go to snacks is nutella greek yogurt with bananas mixed in. Well lately my life has been super busy and my bananas haven’t been getting eaten up as fast as normal, so I have a pile of dark bananas on my counter just screaming my name! Now I do love the normal banana bread and I have even made just banana muffins as well, but I was wanting something different. Going back to my favorite snack I thought about combining nutella and bananas again somehow. Then I thought…cookies!!! Mmmmmm how can you go wrong with bananas, nutella and cookies!!!?? Well of course you cant! 🙂 The recipe below is what I came up with 🙂
Banana Nutella Cookies
- 1/2cup Nutella
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 3/4cup oats (quaker instant oats)
- 2 ripe bananas
- 3/4cup butter (salted)
- 3/4cup sugar
Preheat oven 400F
In a medium mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking soda,and sugar.
Cut in the butter. I cut the butter into cubes and then used a fork to cut it in. Once it was started I used my hards to get the butter all incorporated.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg and then the banana. I used the whisk to mash up the bananas.
Add the banana mix to the flour mix and mix till all incorporated .
Stir in the oats.
Use a knife to “cut” in the nutella. You want it to be streaked with nutella yumminess!
Spray the cookie sheet with non stick spray or use a baking stone
Scoop the batter onto the cooking sheet. I used my small pampered chef cookie scoop. (about a 1Tbsp)
Cook for 8minutes
Transfer to a cooling rack
While the cookies are cooling, in a microwave safe bowl add 3Tbsp. of nutella and microwave for 20secinds.
Drizzle the warm nutella over top the cookies
Let cool or enjoy warm! Either way these are heaven in your mouth!!
Let me know what you think!! 🙂
PS. I took these to our latest homeschool group meeting and the group all gave them very high reviews! One of my favorites was when one of them said they tasted like Gramas!! That is exactly how good these cookies are! 🙂
During our meeting, Matt Doheny, Congressional Candidate, stopped by to speak with our group. He tasted one of my cookies and said” WOW! These are incredible!! I was not expecting them to be this good, but wow!!” Needless to say he went on to eat several more and agreed to take this photo! 🙂 Super excited about this! Thanks Mr. Doheny!! Good luck in your Congressional race!
