Easy 2-Ingredient Oat Meal Banana Cookies - Future Of Food.

These Banana Oatmeal Cookies are hands down the best banana flavored cookie I have ever had. Not only are they moist and simmer for times, but they are unmistakably banana-y.

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

When good brewed banana treats come together, we move a little crazy for them.

These cookies make the list of banana items to go mad for. With no doubt.

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

Creating them is just as easy as eating them.

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

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

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

To bake them, spoon out about a tablespoon of bread and create a thick disk, as opposed to a ball. They spread somewhat when baking, so don't place them too close together. Bake them for about 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 grandmother (my dad's mother ) passed out in 2008. Once I started baking a lot a couple of years ago, my uncle gave me cookbook he'd had and didn't use. I've had it on my list to produce numerous her desserts ever since.

My father and I left her gaufrettes (a French cookie -- my grandparents were French) a year or so ago. It was a see page convention for my grandma to make them each Christmas! She gave everyone a big tin of these, which had been quite a feat with 6 sons.

I now know just how much of an accomplishment it was! My goodness. She made them with a traditional gaufrette iron which goes over a open flame. My father and I had them on the stove. They cook very quickly and you have to be precise. Too long and they sort of disintegrated into the iron. Overly long and they burnt to the iron and also we had to wash it out.

My dad was massaging the batter and taking away the cookies, I was working the ironthe hubs was timing things. It required many tries to get it , but they were so great! I've tried to create them on my own and it works. I would love to share the recipe, however, the dang irons are so tough to find. And expensive. At some point, I'd like to just make a cookie cutter with the same gaufrette taste.

For now though, I am sharing these biscuits. I don't think I ever had them when she made them, but they are from her novel.

It's such an enjoyable recipe book to check through, too. There are so many handwritten pages, including clippings and paper recipes which were taped to the book. I love the way they used to write recipes at the paper -- they'd the person who submitted it is name and adorable little tales. It's so enjoyable to browse ! What a different 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 class or something (they have been big into square dance ). It's definitely from West Virginia, where they lived.

In any event, I am so glad to finally talk about a recipe out of her novel with you! I made a few changes to make them thicker and puffier and they're delicious. There will be more to come out of her recipe book, but for now like the banana.
