Servings: 12

1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 medium ripe banana, mashed
2 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup dried fruit/chocolate chips/nuts

Preheat oven to 350F.
Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
Cream together the butter and the sugars with a mixer. Beat in the egg whites and banana, then the vanilla extract.
Gradually add in the flour mixture on low speed.
Stir in the oats and dried fruit/chocolate chips.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto a silpat lined baking sheet. You can flatten the tops a bit with moistened fingers or leave them domed shaped (which are more moist and muffin like - I did both, but the ones pictured are the non-flattened version).
Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350F, until set and lightly browned (10-13 min if you flatten the cookies).
Let cookies cool for about 5 minutes on the pan before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
