Oatmeal Banana Molasses Cookies Recipe

By Marcus Samuelsson |

I always want to bake on Sundays and Mondays, and cookies never fail to satisfy.

This recipe is a medley of a few recipes, for the ultimate one-bowl cookie recipe.

I added banana to give them sweetness and oats to give them texture. You can add any other ingredients that strike your fancy-walnuts, currants, raisins, or chocolate chips.



    3/4 cup canola oil

    1 cup brown sugaror honey

    1 egg

    1 1/2 tsp baking soda

    1/4 tsp sea salt

    2 tbsp vanilla extract

    2 tsp cinnamon

    1/4 cup molasses

    2 1/4 cup flour

    1 overripe banana, roughly mashed up

    1 cup rolled oats
