Christmas Cookie Swap Collab - 12/07/2019

Happy Saturday friends!  It's the most wonderful time of the year!  Some fellow YouTubers have taken some time out of their schedules to share some cookies or other sweet treats together for you.  When I got invited to this collaboration by Joan (Joan's Pointed Plate), I was not really sure what I wanted to make.  Since I do not use some of the ingredients that others do, such as light butter, I decided I needed to find something that didn't have a lot of butter in it.  So I did a search of Pinterest and found a TON of great recipes, but not all of them had been updated for the new plans.  I choose a Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie as it really seemed like I had most of these ingredients on hand anyway.  Here's my recipe, using my substitutions.

Tracey's Variation of the Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie

35 grams Lily's Semi-Sweet Baking Chips'
2 tablespoons Butter
1/2 cup Granulated Monkfruit Sweetener
1/2 cup Truvia Brown Sugar Blend
1 Banana
1 egg
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 cup of King Arthur White Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
1 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Melt your butter in the microwave
Beat together butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, banana and vanilla extract
Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together until well incorporated
Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients.  I did this a little at a time.
Blend in your oatmeal and chocolate chips.  I did this by hand.
Using a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon since I don't have a cookie scoop, put your cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or grease your cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 to 14 minutes.  I did 15 minutes since I had to use 2 cookie sheets.

Using the 1 Tbsp measuring spoon, this recipe yielded 36 cookies, the Points are as follows:

MyWW Purple: 1 Point
MyWW Blue: 1 Point
MyWW Green: 2 Points.

EDIT:  I forgot to say a BIG thank you to Joan for the invite!
