Oatmeal-Banana-Chocolate Chip Cookies

I veganized, twisted and flipped a recipe from this cookbook that I found for one dollar at a garage sale. I owned this book as a kid and loved it. It brings back memories!

Heat oven to 375* & Lightly grease a baking sheet.

Stir together in bowl:
1 C. flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ginger

1 C. brown sugar (packed)
1 C. rolled oats

Mix in thoroughly:
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 C. vegetable oil
2 Tbsp vanilla soy milk
1/4 C. mashed banana

Stir in:
1/4 C. chocolate chips

Bake for about 12 minutes, then cool on the sheet a minute before transferring to a rack. These taste better the next day, if they last that long! I got 16 cookies.

Hey, those cookies look really great! And the girls of course, cute as always.
About your last entry, that's great that your Mom bought those burgers. My Mom finally started getting Boca burgers, chik'n patties and Smart Dogs for me and my sis, so we can have a "normal" meal with the family. I like it.
