Need to use up your overripe bananas? Banana Oatmeal Cookies are delicious and so simple to make.
BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
We had 10 uneaten ripe bananas last week. Sometimes I buy bananas and they disappear in one day…other times they sit…uneaten…for days…and I am forced to make some delicious banana cookies.
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
These are one of my absolute favorite cookie recipes. I like to make a big batch and then freeze most of them. Then just grab a cookie or two out of the freezer and either pop them in the microwave when I need a snack for myself or I can put one in the kids school lunch box.
The dough can also be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days if you want to save some dough and bake the cookies later. Dough can also be frozen and used for later. Just be sure to thaw it in the fridge before using.
These banana cookies are a delicious with the addition of the oatmeal. I think it give these Banana Oatmeal Cookies the perfect texture and keeps them soft and moist…which is exactly what you want in a Chewy Banana Cookie.
