Last fall, ripple-filled chocolate chip cookies seemed to be all over my Instagram feed. Refereed to as “pan-banging chocolate chip cookies” by their creator, Sarah Kieffer, these cookies were being made and remade and reshared.

What really stood out about these cookies were the numerous crispy ripples that came about through a process of freezing the batter and then banging the cookie sheet/pan in increments during the baking process. The resulting cookies were said to have crispy ridges and a soft center. And, I was pretty darn smitten with these cookies. So, as I usually do, I saved the recipe on Instagram. And then managed to forget about them completely during the selling of my old home and the bedlam that ensued.

Today, I was trying to organize my many saved IG posts and guess what? Yup – I bumped into those pan-banging chocolate chip cookies again! Today I figured I’d give those cookies a quick try. But, alas, I didn’t have flour, or butter, or even chocolate chips – and, I call myself a food blogger?!?!

As I always have a case or two of Eggland’s Best eggs hanging around in my fridge, I figured I’d sub in ingredients to make some pan banging gluten free, butter free cookies! A quick look through my pantry and I came across a bag of banana chips and figured I’d sub them in for the chocolate chips. When I mixed up my gluten-free, butter free dough, it smelled like it was missing something, so I added in some cardamom.

Steps to making Making Banana Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Then, I tried following the steps involved in those pan banging cookies. First, I froze the dough and then I tried banging the pan during the baking process of these Oat Banana Chip cookies. And found that maybe I just made way too many substitutions. Duh!

I didn’t have rippled Oat Banana Chip Cookies, I had thinly spread out, super sweet, ones! At this point I figured I’d abandon my idea of rippled edges and just work on making some tasty, yet gluten and butter free, Oat Banana Chip Cookies. I love eggs too much so chose not to make these vegan cookies. And, when It comes to eggs, Eggland’s Best is my only choice.

I ended up making a second batch of these Oat Banana Chip cookies that turned out to be a bit too puffy and not sweet enough and then ended with a third batch that seemed just right.

*If you would like puffier cookies, before refrigerating dough, separate it (using a scoop or spoon) into balls and then place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours. The coconut oil will harden up and make it hard to manipulate the dough at this point that is why the cookies are separated first. Place the chilled dough onto a parchment lined baking tray and bake as mentioned above.

Makes 30 cookies approximately.
