Healthy And Balanced Delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Meal Breakfast Cookies.

These Banana Oatmeal Cookies are hands down the best banana flavored cookie I've ever had. Not only are they really are moist and chewy for days, they're unmistakably banana-y.

Banana can be one of those flavors that can get lost when you bake with it. It can be really subtle taste. It always bums me out if that occurs, because I LOVE the taste of banana. And so does the hubs.

When great flavored banana treats come together, we move a little mad for them.

These biscuits make the record of banana things to go crazy for. Without a doubt.

And they're so moistthey nearly melt in your mouth. Plus, using both banana and oats inside them, they're basically healthy, right? And perfect for breakfast!

Making them is just as simple as eating them.

You start with mixing all of those beautiful ingredients together.

I have to warn you. The odor of the mixture -- using the banana -- is equally intoxicating. The hubs was in the kitchen which makes the dough together with me (we made a deal that included him with me) and we had to work hard not to place our faces, or a straw, right in to it.

You then add all of the dry ingredients (which means you only use one bowl yay!) And combine it all together!

To bake themspoon about a tablespoon of bread and create a thick disc, as opposed to a ball. They spread somewhat after baking, and thus don't put them too close together. Bake them for about 10-12 minutes to get a nice, moist cookie. So yummy!

One other thing I love about this recipe is where it came from.

My grandma (my dad's mother ) passed away in 2008. Once I started draining a lot a couple of years back, my uncle gave me her cookbook he'd had didn't use. I have had it on my list to produce numerous her desserts ever since.

It was a tradition for my grandma to make them each Christmas! She gave everyone a large tin of these, which had been quite an effort with 6 sons.

I now know exactly how much of a feat it was! My goodness. She made them using a conventional gaufrette iron which goes over a open fire. My dad and I had them on the stove. They cook very quickly and you have a fantastic read to be exact. Too long and they sort of disintegrated into the iron. Too long and they burned into the iron and we still had to scrub it out.

My father was pouring the batter and taking away the biscuits, I had been working the iron, the hubs was time things. It required a number of tries to get it , but they had been so excellent! I've attempted to make them again on my own and it works. I'd really like to share the recipe, but the dang irons are so hard to find. And expensive. Sooner or later, I'd like to just earn a cookie cutter with the same gaufrette flavor.

For today though, I'm sharing these cookies. I really don't think I ever had them when she made thembut they're from her novel.

It's such an enjoyable recipe book to check through, too. There are many handwritten pages, clippings and paper recipes that were taped into the book. I adore the way they used to write recipes at the paper -- they had the man who filed it's name and cute little stories. It's so enjoyable to read ! What another time on earth!

Anyways, I do not know where this recipe originated out. The newspaper appears like it was on a flier out of their square dance class or something (they have been big into square dancing). It is definitely from West Virginia, in which they lived.

In any event, I am so glad to finally share a recipe out of her novel with you! I made a couple of adjustments to make them thicker and more puffier and they are delicious. There will be more to come out of her recipe book, but for the time being enjoy the banana.
