Because another loaf of banana bread seemed excessive, this week I made healthy banana oatmeal cookies with my leftover ripe bananas. I hadn’t made them in over a year and forgot what a great treat these are! These cookies are packed with nutritious ingredients, taste good, and make the house smell great while they’re baking. I first found them on Lori Bregman’s blog, and I’ve since seen similar versions with added ingredients like dates and walnuts. I stuck to the original this time – with a little extra vanilla.
