Moist and Chewy Banana Oat Meal Cookies - Long Living And Also Happiness

All 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 days, they're unmistakably banana-y.

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

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

These cookies make the listing of banana items to go mad for. Without a doubt.

And they're so moist, they nearly melt in your mouth. In addition, using both oats and banana in them, they are basically healthy, right? And ideal for breakfast!

Making them is equally as easy as eating them.

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

I have to warn you. The smell of that mixture -- using the banana -- is equally intoxicating. The hubs was at the kitchen which makes the dough together with me (we left a bargain that contained him baking with me) and we both had to work hard not to put our faces, or even a straw, right in to it.

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

To bake themspoon out about a tablespoon of dough and make a thick disk, instead of a ball. They spread somewhat after baking, and thus don't place them too close together. Bake them for approximately 10-12 minutes to get a nice, moist cookiecutter. So yummy!

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

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

It was a convention for my grandmother to make them every Christmas! She also gave everyone a big tin of them, which was quite an effort with 6 sons.

I know precisely how much of a feat it was! My goodness. She made them using a traditional gaufrette iron which goes over an open flame. My dad and I had them around the stove. They cook very fast and you have to be precise. Too long and they sort of disintegrated into the iron. Overly long and they burned into the iron and also we had to wash it out.

My father was minding the batter and removing the biscuits, I was operating the ironthe hubs was time things. It took a number of attempts to get it right, but they were so great! I have tried to create them again on my own and it never works. I would like to share the recipe, but the dang irons are all so tough to find. And expensive. Sooner or later, I would like to just make a cookie cutter this page with the identical gaufrette taste.

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

It's such an enjoyable recipe book to check through, also. There are many handwritten pages, clippings and newspaper recipes that were taped to the publication. I love the way that they used to write recipes in the newspaper -- they had the man who filed it's title and adorable little stories. It's so enjoyable to read ! What a different time in the world!

Anyways, I do not really know where this recipe came out. The newspaper looks like it had been on a flier out of their square dancing class or something (they have been big to square dancing). It's undoubtedly from West Virginia, in which they lived.

In any event, I'm so happy to finally share a recipe out of 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 from her recipe book, but for now enjoy the banana.
