Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

My girls and I like these for snacks. They're wholesome-healthy.

1 c. vegetable oil (I use canola)
(for fluffier cookies, you could make half of that amount coconut oil or shortening)
3/4 c. brown sugar, packed
3/4 c. white sugar
Substitute for 2 eggs- I use 1 tsp. baking powder + 1 T. liquid and 1 T. vinegar, and then a little more banana than called for.
1 tsp. water
5 very ripe bananas, mashed

1 1/2 c. brown rice flour
1 1/2 c. oat flour(grind rolled or quick oats in blender)
(optional- use 1/4 c. tapioca starch, cornstarch, or potato starch instead of 1/4 c. of the oat flour, to help lighten the product)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. quick oats

12 oz. chocolate chips

Cream oil and sugars. Meanwhile in separate bowl, combine dry ingredients(flour, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, oats). Set aside. To oil and sugar, add egg substitute and vanilla. Beat. Then add bananas and mix. Add dry ingredients and mix. Then stir in chocolate chips. Spoon onto cookie sheets or make bars- spread in 9X 13. Bake 375 degrees. Check at 12 min.
