Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
In a mixing bowl, mash the banana well. You can use a fork for this, but your hands work well, too. Add the oil, sugar, and vanilla, and mix with a strong fork. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, and mix until the dry ingredients are just moistened. Add the oatmeal, walnuts, and chocolate chips and mix well. It's actually good to use your hands for mixing when using oatmeal, that way you make sure that the oats get nice and moist.
If the dough is very slippery you might want to add a few tablespoons extra flour--it really depends on how big your banana was.
Clean your hands and roll the dough into balls slightly smaller than a gold ball. Flatten it a bit in your hands and place each ball about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes, than transfer them to a cooling rack.
