Chocolate Cookies

I adapted this recipe from meatoutmondays.org.  I melted the chocolate chips into the batter by mistake the first time I made them and now that is how I make these simple but decadent chocolate cookies!

3/4 cup of safflower oil
1/2 cup ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 good size bananas)
3/4 cup vegan cane sugar
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup vegan chocolate chips
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 375 and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.  This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies.

In a medium pot, combine oil, bananas, sugar, and salt.  Warm over low heat for 2 minutes, whisking to combine.  Using a spatula, stir in the chocolate chips and let them melt.  This will take about a minute.  When combined, turn the heat off.

In a bowl, combine the flour and baking soda. Add the chocolate mixture and mix until the flour is incorporated and you have a great chocolate ball of dough.

Using a three tablespoon ice cream scooper, scoop out the dough onto the parchment paper.   Bake for 13 minutes and then let cool.  Enjoy!
