Low calorie and delicious, these cookies are the testy result of a modification of Hillary Clinton's Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies recipe. Key to the reduction of calories in this recipe is the subsidization of mashed banana in place of shortening, and stevia sweetner instead of sugar. This results in a spongy texture tasting of banana, almost more reminiscent of a banana bread with chocolate chips rather than a chocolate chip cookie. Either way, it's delicious!
