Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I always have left-over bananas, and no one in my family likes Banana Bread. My son, maybe sometimes, but he only likes it hot out of the oven. So, this is a new recipe I found and something perfect to make with those left-over really ripe bananas, and everyone LOVED these cookies!

Banana-Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies
a Martha Stewart Recipe found on Recipe Girl

1 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup ripe banana, mashed
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
8 ounces semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup walnuts, toasted & coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 375. Spray pan with nonstick spray. Whisk together flours, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. In a separate large bowl, mix butter and sugars until pale and fluffy. Reduce speed to low and add egg & vanilla; mix until combined. Mix in banana. Add flour mixture; mix just until combined. Stir in oats, chocolate chips and walnuts.

Drop dough into small round tbsps onto prepared baking sheets (or use a cookie scoop), spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies 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.
