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

Banana may be one of these flavors that could get lost once you bake with this. It can be very subtle flavor. It always bums me out if that occurs, cause I really like the taste of banana. And thus does the hubs.

So when good flavored banana treats come along, we go a little crazy for them.

These cookies 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 ideal for breakfast!

Creating them is equally as easy as eating them.

You begin with mixing all those beautiful ingredients together.

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

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

To bake them, spoon about a tablespoon of bread and create a thick disc, as opposed to a chunk. They spread a bit when baking, and thus don't put them too close together. Bake them for about 10-12 minutes to get a fine, moist cookie. So yummy!

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

My grandma (my dad's mother ) passed away in 2008. After I started draining a lot a few years ago, my uncle gave me cookbook that he'd had didn't use. I have had it in my list to create 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 ago. It was a custom for my grandmother to make them each Christmas! She also gave everyone a big tin of them, which has been quite an effort with 6 sons.

I now know precisely how much of an effort it was! My goodness. She made them using a conventional gaufrette iron which goes over an open fire. My father and I had them on the stove. They cook very fast and you need to be exact. Too long and they kind of disintegrated to iron. As long and they burnt to the iron and also we needed to clean it out.

My father was pouring the batter and removing the biscuits, I had been operating the ironthe hubs was time things. It took many attempts to get it right, but they were so good! I've attempted to create them again on my own and it works. I'd really like to share the recipe, however, the dang irons are so tough to discover. And pricey. At some point, I would love to just make a cookie cutter with the exact same gaufrette taste.

For today though, I am sharing these cookies. I really don't believe I had them when she made them, but they're from her novel.

It's such a fun recipe book to check through, also. There are so many handwritten pages, clippings and newspaper recipes that were taped to the publication. I adore the way that they used to write recipes from the newspaper -- they'd the you could check here man who submitted it's title and cute little stories. It is so fun to read through them! What another time on earth!

Anyways, I do not know where this recipe originated from. The paper appears like it had been on a flier out of their square dance group or something (they have been big into square dance ). It's undoubtedly from West Virginia, where they dwelt.

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