2 Component Banana Oat Meal Cookies - My Sweet Desires

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

Banana may be one of these flavors that could get lost when you bake with it. It can be really delicate flavor. It always bums me out when that happens, because I LOVE the taste of banana. And so does the hubs.

So when great flavored banana treats come together, we move a little crazy for them.

These biscuits make the listing of banana things to go crazy for. With no doubt.

And they are so moist, they nearly melt in your mouth. Additionally, using both banana and oats inside them, they are basically healthy, correct? And perfect for breakfast!

Making them is equally as easy as eating them.

You've got the usual suspects -- butter, brown sugar, white sugar, an egg, vanilla and mashed bananas. You begin by mixing all of those lovely components together.

I have to warn you. The smell of that mixture -- with the banana -- is intoxicating. The hubs was at the kitchen which makes the dough with me (we left a deal that included him carbonated with me) and we had to work hard to not put our faces, or even a straw, straight in to it.

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

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

1 additional thing I love about this recipe is where it came from.

My grandmother (my father's mother ) passed out in 2008. Once I started baking a lot a couple of years back, my uncle gave me cookbook that he'd had didn't use. I have had it on my list to produce a number of her desserts ever since.

My dad and I left her gaufrettes (a French cookie -- my great grandparents were French) a year or so past. It was a convention for my grandmother to make them every Christmas! She gave everyone a big tin of these, which was quite a feat with 6 sons.

I know just how much of an effort it was! My goodness. She made them with a conventional gaufrette iron that goes over a open flame. My father and I had them in the cooker. They cook very fast and you have to be exact. Too long and they kind of disintegrated to iron. As long and they burned into the iron and we still had to scrub it out.

My dad was pouring the batter and removing the cookies, I was operating the iron, the hubs was timing things. It required many tries to get it , but they were so great! I have tried to make them on my own and it never works. I would like to click to investigate share the recipe, but the dang irons are all so tough to find. And expensive. Sooner or later, I'd love to just earn a cookie with the exact same gaufrette taste.

For today though, I'm sharing these biscuits. I don't believe I had them made thembut they are from her book.

It's such an enjoyable recipe book to look through, too. There are so many handwritten pages, clippings and newspaper recipes that were taped to the book. I really like the way they used to write recipes at the paper -- they'd the individual who submitted it is title and adorable little stories. It's so fun to read through them! What a different time on earth!

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

In any event, I'm so happy to finally share a recipe from her book with you! I made a few changes to make them thicker and puffier and they are delicious. There'll be more to come from her recipe book, but for the time being like the banana.
