Chewy Banana-Mini Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Thick, chewy cookies loaded with flavor and texture, that are healthy?? Yep! Sweetness from the ripened bananas and mini chips, along with the nutty texture of the oats makes these cookies hard to eat just one. Since it’s bananas and oatmeal, that’s practically banana bread, which is a breakfast food, so go ahead and eat these anytime of day! 🙂


Have a great weekend! We are going to try and enjoy this sunny weather before it rains again! (And we’ll probably bring some of these cookies along with us!)

Ooh, these look great! I'm a huge fan of banana in my cookies, actually. My mom introduced me to cookies like that and it's just so delish! You elevated it with bananas and chocolate chips :-)
