Three Ingredient Banana Oat Meal Cookies - Cook On Your Home kitchen

These Banana Oatmeal Cookies are hands down the best banana flavored cookie I've ever had. Not only are they 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 very delicate flavor. It always bums me out once that happens, because I LOVE the taste of banana. And so does the hubs.

When great flavored banana treats come along, we go a little crazy for them.

These biscuits make the list of banana items to go mad for. Without a doubt.

And they are so moistthey melt in your mouth. Plus, using both oats and banana in them, they're basically healthy, right? And perfect for breakfast!

Making them is equally as simple as eating them.

You begin with mixing all those lovely ingredients together.

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

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

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

1 other thing I love about this recipe is really where it came out.

My grandma (my dad's mom) passed out in 2008. Once I started draining a lot a few years ago, my uncle gave me her cookbook he'd had and didn't use. I have had it in my list to create numerous her desserts since.

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

I now know precisely how much of a feat it had been! My goodness. She made them using a traditional gaufrette iron that goes over a open fire. My dad and I had them around the stove. They cook very fast and you need to be exact. Too little time and they kind of disintegrated to the iron. Overly long and they burned into the iron and we all had to wash it out.

My dad was pouring the batter and removing the cookies, I had been operating the ironthe hubs was time things. It took many tries to get it , but they were so great! I have tried to create them again on my own and it never works. I would really like to share the recipe, but the dang irons are all so hard to discover. And expensive. Sooner or later, I'd like to just make a cookie with the same gaufrette taste.

For today though, I am sharing these cookies. I don't think I ever had them when she made thembut they are from her book.

It's such an enjoyable recipe book to look through, too. There are many handwritten pages, including clippings and paper recipes that were taped to the book. I like the way that they used to write recipes at the paper -- they had the person who filed it's title and cute little stories. It is so fun to browse through them! What another time in the world!

Anyways, I do not know where this recipe came from. The newspaper looks like it had been on a flier from their square dancing band or something (they have been big into square dance ). It's definitely from West Virginia, in which they dwelt.

Either way, I'm so glad to finally talk about a recipe out of her book with you! I made a couple of adjustments to make them thicker and more puffier and they are delicious. There'll be more to come from her recipe book, but for now enjoy the banana.
