Makes 16


  • 125g salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup traditional rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped banana chips
  • 100g dark chocolate, melted


  1. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until pale and creamy. Add egg. Beat well to combine. Add oats and flours. Stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
  2. Add banana and banana chips to dough. Stir to combine. Refrigerate for 45 minutes to firm slightly.
  3. While you wait, line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Preheat oven to 190C/170C fan forced.
  4. Roll 2 level tablespoons of mixture into 16 balls. Place on prepared trays – allowing room for spreading. Using the palm of your hand, slightly flatten to form a 5.5cm round. Bake for 12-14 minutes, swapping trays after 10 minutes, or until lightly golden. Stand cookies on trays for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  5. Place cookies on a sheet of baking paper. Spoon chocolate into a snap-lock bag. Snip off one corner and drizzle chocolate over cookies. Stand until chocolate sets. Serve.
