Banana Oatmeal Cookie
I am always looking for more ways to incorporate healthy food with delicious foods such as desserts and special treats. All while trying to make sure they actually taste good. If our daughters enjoy it, I know I have succeeded. Lets be honest we find recipes that look absolutely amazing on pinterest and some do not always turn out like they should.

I came across this banana cookie recipe. It look simple, less time consuming, and delicious. I knew I had to give it a try. While the cookies were baking in the oven my home started to smell like the aroma of banana bread. At least that's what my 4 year old told me. It literally only took me a couple minutes to prepare. Which is perfect when your a busy mom on the go trying to eat healthy.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Ingredients included...
  • 2 large bananas. (I use my old frozen ones I always have on hand from my freezer. Of course let them thaw first if you do too.)
  • 1 cup of old fashion oats. 
  • I added a half of a handful of raisins. (You may add chocolate chips instead, dried cranberries, etc.)
How To...
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mash or use a hand blender to get somewhat of a smooth consistency.
  3. Add one cup of the Oats and raisins.
  4. Mix well and place onto a cookie sheet.
  5. Place into the oven for 15 minutes.

Our daughters loved the cookies and they disappeared as quickly as it took me to bake them.
