These cookies were really good, though I made some modifications.
I used a whole banana in place of the butter, unsweetened applesauce for the oil (same amount), I used light brown sugar and only added about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips.
They came out great and were delicious ^^

The best chocolate chip cookies I've ever made. A little bit of an oatmeal taste/texture compared to regular cookies, but so good. My husband actually finished off the first batch!
These cookies are so yummy . If you want to make them more chewy you can substitute your butter for the same amour of apple sauce. It taste just the same if you would of added butter. It also makes it a bit healthier.
2 things to make them less crumbly and more yummy:
1 - use 1/2 cup butter and no oil
2 - use 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 white flour
Also add 1/2 - 1 tsp cinnamon if you like cinnamon
I recognize these changes make the cookie slightly less healthy, BUT they taste a bazillion times better and are still a much healthier alternative than traditional chocolate chip cookies
