- Place the bananas in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add the dates and vanilla, and blend until almost smooth. Add the oil, and blend on high until the oil is emulsified, about 5 minutes. Pour into a large bowl.
- Stir in the peanuts, salt, oats, and whole wheat flour. Mix until just combined. Let stand for 10 minutes.
- Spoon by the teaspoonful onto a parchment-lined cookie tray. Top each cookie with a couple of chocolate chips. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes.
- Lift one side of the parchment paper slightly and remove the cookies with a spatula. The cookies will be sticky. Dry on a rack.
