Yesterday was a snow day here in Northern Virginia, which offered a perfect opportunity to use up a ripe banana, chop up some dates, and make these delicious banana-date cookies!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine flour, salt, and baking soda in a bowl. Set aside. Using an electric mixer, mix butter and sugar on medium speed for 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla; mix until combined. Stir in banana. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in oats and dates.
Scoop heaping tablespoons of dough onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies, rotating sheet halfway through, until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire rack; cool completely. Cookies can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days or wrap well and freeze.
