Instructions Checklist

  • Spread walnuts onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until walnuts are toasted and fragrant, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from oven and cool; coarsely chop.

  • Whisk all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until pale and fluffy; add egg and vanilla extract. Beat until just combined. Beat banana into creamed butter mixture until just combined.

  • Stir flour mixture into creamed butter mixture until dough is just combined; fold in oats, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Drop heaping spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing each mound about 1 1/2 inch apart.

  • Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven for 6 minutes. Rotate pans and bake until edges are browned, 6 to 7 more minutes. Cool cookies on the baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Cook's Note:

The whole wheat flour helps balance the moisture from the banana. You can play with the amount of banana that you like, I usually add an extra couple of tablespoons to mine. To take this recipe to the next level, you can replace 1/2 cup of the butter with 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter, and they taste phenomenal! Be sure to use a banana that is well on its way to the trash can, the darker they are, the sweeter and more flavorful they become.

Dark pans are not recommended as the bottoms of these cookies scorch easily.
