5-Ingredient Banana Oat Meal Morning Meal Cookies - Tidy & Tasty.

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

Banana may be one of these flavors that may get lost once you inhale with this. It can be really subtle taste. It always bums me out once that occurs, because I really like the taste of banana. And thus does the hubs.

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

These cookies make the list of banana items to go crazy for. Without a doubt.

And they are so moistthey almost melt in your mouth. In addition, using both banana and oats in them, they are basically healthy, correct? And ideal for breakfast!

Creating them is equally as simple as eating them.

You begin with mixing all those lovely components together.

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

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

To bake them, spoon about a tablespoon of dough and make a thick disc, instead of a ball. They spread a bit after baking, and therefore don't put them too close together. Bake them for about 10-12 minutes for a nice, moist cookie. So yummy!

One additional thing I really like about this recipe is really where it came out.

My grandmother (my dad's mom) passed away in 2008. After I started baking a lot a few years ago, my uncle gave me her cookbook that he'd had and didn't use. I've had it in my list to produce a number of her desserts ever since.

My father and I left her gaufrettes (a French cookie -- my grandparents were French) a year or so past. It was a custom for my grandma to make them each Christmas! She also gave everyone a big tin of them, which has been really a feat with 6 sons.

I know exactly how much of a feat it had been! My goodness. She made them with a conventional gaufrette iron that goes over a open flame. My father and I had them around the stove. They cook very quickly and you have to be precise. Too long and they kind of disintegrated to the iron. Too long and they burnt to the iron and also we had to wash it out.

My father was massaging the batter and taking away the cookies, I was operating the ironthe hubs was time things. It required a number of attempts to get it right, but they had been so excellent! I have tried to make them again on my own and it works. I would love to share the recipe, but the dang irons are all so tough to find. And pricey. Sooner or later, I'd like to just earn a cookie with the same gaufrette taste.

For today though, I am sharing these biscuits. I really don't believe I ever had them made them, but they're from her book.

It is such an enjoyable recipe book to look through, also. There are so many handwritten pages, clippings and newspaper recipes that were taped to the book. I adore the way they used to write recipes from the paper -- they'd the man who submitted it's name and adorable little tales. It's so enjoyable to browse through them! click reference What another time in the world!

Anyways, I don't really know where this recipe came from. The newspaper looks like it had been on a flier out of their square dance group or something (they were big to square dance ). It's undoubtedly from West Virginia, in which they dwelt.

In any event, I'm so happy to finally talk about a recipe out of her novel with you! I made a few changes to make them thicker and more puffier and they are delicious. There'll be more to come out of her recipe book, but for the time being enjoy the banana.
