Tasty and also Chewy Banana Oat Meal Cookies - Long Live And Joy

These Banana Oatmeal Cookies are hands down the best banana flavored cookie I've ever had. Not only are they are moist and simmer for times, but they're unmistakably banana-y.

Banana can be one of those flavors that can get lost when you bake with this. It can be quite delicate taste. It always bums me out when that happens, cause I LOVE the taste of banana. And thus does the hubs.

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

These biscuits make the listing of banana items to go mad for. With no doubt.

And they're so moistthey nearly melt in your mouth. Additionally, using both oats and banana inside them, they're basically healthy, right? And ideal for breakfast!

Making 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 by mixing all those lovely ingredients together.

I must warn you. The odor of that mixture -- together with the banana -- is equally intoxicating. The hubs was in the kitchen making the dough with me (we left a bargain that contained him baking with me) and we had to work hard not to place our faces, or a straw, right in to it.

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

To bake themspoon about a tablespoon of bread and make a thick disk, rather than a ball. They spread a bit when baking, so don't put them too close together. Bake them for approximately 10-12 minutes to get a fine, moist cookiecutter. So yummy!

One additional thing I love about this recipe is where it came out.

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

My father and I made her gaufrettes (a French cookie -- my great grandparents were French) a year or so ago. It was a tradition for my grandma to make them every Christmas! She gave everyone a big tin of these, which had been really an effort with 6 sons.

I now know precisely how much of an accomplishment it had been! My goodness. She made them using a traditional gaufrette iron that goes over a open flame. My dad and I had them on the this content cooker. They cook very fast and you have to be exact. Too long and they sort of disintegrated into iron. As long and they burnt to the iron and we still had to clean it out.

My father was massaging the batter and taking away the biscuits, I was operating the iron, the hubs was timing things. It took quite a few tries to get it right, but they were so good! I've tried to create them on my own and it never works. I'd really like to share the recipe, however, the dang irons are all so tough to discover. And expensive. Sooner or later, I would like to just make a cookie cutter with the same gaufrette flavor.

For today though, I am sharing these biscuits. I really don't think I ever had them made thembut they are from her novel.

It's such a fun recipe book to check through, also. There are many handwritten pages, including clippings and paper recipes which were taped to the publication. I love the way they used to compose recipes from the newspaper -- they'd the person who submitted it is name and cute little tales. It's so enjoyable to read through them! What a different time on the planet!

Anyways, I don't really know where this recipe came from. The newspaper appears like it was on a flier out of their square dance band or something (they have been big to square dance ). It's undoubtedly from West Virginia, in which they dwelt.

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