Very Banana Breakfast Cookies

adapted from allrecipes

Makes 24 cookies (I think)

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 12-15 minutes

Cost: $.95

(bananas: .40, oats: .20, sugar: .05, oil: .05, chocolate chips: .25)

Note: The original recipe calls for 1 cup of dates in lieu of the chocolate chips. I think this would be just awesome and would serve to naturally sweeten the recipe, but know it wouldn't go over with anyone else in this family. If you are better people than us, go for it. Otherwise, there's always chocolate. 

3 ripe bananas, peeled and mashed

2 C oats (I use quick)

1/4 C honey or sugar

1/3 C vegetable oil (I usually reduce this a smidge)

1 tsp vanilla

1/4-1/2 C chocolate chips, optional

Combine all ingredients. If you've got 10 minutes, let this sit for 10 minutes, which will make it easier to put these on a baking sheet. If you haven't got 10 minutes, that's okay too, but the batter will be looser. 

Plop onto cookie sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges have browned a bit. 

Allow to cool before eating. If you're me, give them some time in the refrigerator. 

If everyone in the family doesn't love these, but a few do, these keep very well in the freezer, but not so well sitting out.
