Banana Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

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.

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!
