End your day with a delicious bite of a Banana Oatmeal Cookie, these are perfect!
Banana oatmeal cookies are the perfect way to use brown bananas. Banana bread is great, but give these cookies a try for something different!
I have a serious addiction to one particular food – cookies. My addiction runs deep too, I particularly love the chocolate chips that go into cookies. So much so that I keep a bag frozen in the freezer at all times.
When I need a little pick me up, I stop by and grab a handful of chocolate chips. Then, I tell myself those calories don’t count.
It’s better than eating a whole cookie, right? Well, it’s probably just as bad. My cookie addiction has trickled down to my daughter too. She’s obsessed with cookies!
There are certain stores I can no longer drive by or I hear this high-pitched voice squealing in the backseat, “cookie, cookie, cookie!” It then turns to screaming when she realizes we have passed her beloved cookie stop.
How do you make Banana Oatmeal Cookies?
This past week though, I made my kids’ day when I greeted them with a plate of banana oatmeal cookies.
Of course, these are probably a healthier version than a traditional chocolate chip, but they are still tasty and perfect for a treat. We also like to make variations of these by adding chocolate chips to them too.
This time though, I skipped the chocolate and served them up with a side of cold milk. My husband was thrilled to see these too.
Considering the cold days we had this past winter and were having this particular day, this was a welcome surprise when he walked in the door.
I made these cookies by adapting my favorite oatmeal raisin cookies. These cookies are more soft and moist than the traditional oatmeal cookie because of the bananas. They reminded me of a cake-style cookie.
My kids ate one, and then minutes later they were begging me for another. My family loved these, and I am sure you will too!
