Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Recipe adapted from Averie Cooks)
Makes: approx. 20
1 large egg
2 small/medium or 1 extra-large ripe bananas
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
60 grams unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/4 cups plain flour
1/2 cinnamon, added to taste
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
200 grams milk chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl (or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or an electric mixer) combine the egg, bananas, sugars, butter, vanilla, and beat on medium-high speed until well combined. 
Add the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and beat on low speed until just combined, about 1 minute.  Add 3/4 of the chocolate chips, and beat on low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and spray with cooking spray. 
Using a spoon or your hands form equal-sized mounds of dough approximately 1/4 cup in size.  Place on the baking tray spaced apart.  Strategically place a few chocolate chips on top of each cookie.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Bake for about 13 minutes (for very soft cookies, longer for more well-done cookies), or until edges have set and tops are just set. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on baking sheet.
