Banana Bread Cookies

These wonderful treats are just as delicious as the actual bread which imspired their creation.  With a few changes in ingredients along with the addition of chocolate chips, you end up with an extremely moist, bite-sized sweet to satisfy any family’s cravings.

Although the baking directions say to mix the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then slowly incorporate into the mixture, I just mixed mine in one at a time with the bananas, oats and chocolate chips added last.

Drop by rounded spoonful on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. 

Remove from oven and let them cool on a wire rack before storing in an air-tight container.  One recipe is enough to make approximately 4 dozen cookies.

Just love the chunky bits of banana along with the sweetness of the chocolate chips!  Just a great cookie all around. 🙂
