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


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

2. Mix all ingredients together and spoon out on greased cookie sheet, about a tablespoon of batter per cookie.

3. Bake for about 12 minutes.
