Banana Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Ingredients: (makes about 12 cookies)

- 2 ripe bananas

- 1 c. quick-cooking oats

- 1/4 c. mini chocolate chips

- 1/2 t. cinnamon

variations:  try raisins or dried cranberries instead of chocolate chips, add chopped nuts, or mix in a couple tablespoons of peanut butter.


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mash the bananas until smooth.  Stir in oats, chocolate chips, and cinnamon.

2.  Drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased baking sheet, press down slightly (cookies will not spread like a typical cookie, so you can space them pretty close together).   Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes.  Cookies will be slightly browned and set up in the middle when done.  Let cool, store in fridge.
