Carob Chips Cookies -sugarfree

So I am trying out some recipes in a book my friend Meleah gave me "Sweet and Sugarfree, An All-Natural Fruit-Sweetened Dessert Cookbook" by Karen E. Barkie.
When I tasted the first one, I thought that it didn't taste much like a cookie... you know having gotten use to the sweeter the better... so it's a bit of an adjustment. But after a couple, when you actually start stasting the cooking and not comparing to everything else, they are good.

I did put chocolate chips in some of the dough (for the rest of the family, and do you think they are enthused? NOPE.. dang it all, less cookies for me)
And MY half has raisins in them to add some sweet. If I'd had carob chips, I would have tried them... but they aren't in my pantry just yet.

Here's the recipe, it says it makes 36 cookies.. I got 24 TINY cookies out of it.

1/4 C mashed banana
1/4 C vegetable oil (here in the US they usually use canola oil made from rapeseed =rasp olie for you in DK.
1 large egg
1 C flour
1 C rolled oats
3/4 C carob chips

*mix bananas and oil, then add the egg.
*mix in flour and then oats
*stir in chips

the 'batter' feels more like a dough
it says to drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet, and bake for 10 min at 350F, or untill just brown around the edges.

Next time: I'd make them bigger, so I can actually sit down and eat a cookie, and not just pop a bite size one in my mouth.
And I want to try to find something else to add in. I was thinking abt chopped dates (nice and sweet) but couldn't find my bag when I started baking
They cookies are firm and kinda chewy... you get to chew them.

I'll add pictures... when I find my camera (which will hopefully be before we eat the nectarine cake later)
