Simple 5-Ingredient Oat Meal Banana Cookies - Future Of Food.

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

Banana can be one of those flavors that can get lost when you inhale with this. It can be really delicate taste. It always bums me out once that happens, because I LOVE the taste of banana. And so does the hubs.

So when great brewed banana treats come along, we go a little crazy for them.

These biscuits make the list of banana things to go crazy for. Without a doubt.

And they're so moist, they nearly melt in your mouth. In addition, using both oats and banana inside them, they are basically healthy, right? And perfect for breakfast!

Creating them is equally as simple as eating them.

You've got the usual suspects -- butter, brown sugar, white sugar, an egg, vanilla and mashed bananas. You start with mixing all those beautiful ingredients together.

I must warn you. The odor of that mixture -- using all the banana -- is intoxicating. The hubs was at the kitchen making the dough with me (we made a bargain that included him baking with me) and we had to work hard not to place our faces, or a straw, straight in to it.

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

To bake them, spoon about a tablespoon of bread and make a thick disk, instead of a chunk. They spread a bit after baking, so don't place them too close together. Bake them for approximately 10-12 minutes for a fine, moist cookiecutter. So yummy!

One other thing I really like about this recipe is where it came from.

My grandma (my father's mother ) passed away in 2008. After I started baking a lot a couple of years ago, my uncle gave me cookbook he'd had didn't use. I have had it in my list to create numerous her desserts ever since.

It was a tradition for my grandma to make them every Christmas! She gave everyone a large tin of these, which had been quite a feat with 6 sons.

I know precisely how much of an effort it had been! My goodness. She made them with a traditional gaufrette iron that goes over an open flame. My dad and I had them around the cooker. They cook very fast and you have to be precise. Too long and they sort of disintegrated to iron. As long and they burned into the iron and we still needed to scrub it out.

My father was minding the batter and taking away the cookies, I was operating the ironthe hubs was timing things. It took a number of attempts to get it right, but they were so good! I have tried to make them on my own and it works. I'd really like to share the recipe, however, the dang irons are so hard to find. And pricey. Sooner or later, I'd love to just earn a cookie cutter with the same gaufrette flavor.

For now though, I am sharing these cookies. I really don't believe I ever had them when she made them, but they are from her novel.

It's such an enjoyable recipe book to look through, also. There are many handwritten pages, including clippings and newspaper view recipes that were taped into the publication. I love the way they used to write recipes at the newspaper -- they had the person who filed it is name and cute little tales. It is so enjoyable to browse through them! What another time on the planet!

Anyways, I do not know where this recipe originated from. The paper looks like it was on a flier from their square dancing group or something (they have been big into square dancing). It's definitely from West Virginia, where they lived.

Either way, I am so happy to finally talk about a recipe from her book with you! I made a couple of adjustments to make them thicker and more puffier and they are delicious. There will be more to come from her recipe book, but for the time being enjoy the banana.
