Banana, Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Pecan Cookies
The title of these cookies may be a mouthful but they are my new favorite cookie! I had a VERY ripe banana to use up so I decided to make cookies with it. I thought oatmeal, milk chocolate chips, and pecans would go well with the banana flavored cookie. I would normally use brown sugar but I was out, so I just used white sugar and I used whole wheat flour to make them a bit healthier. These cookies were a fun after school project with the kids and they tasted amazing. I loved the crunchy texture on the outside and the soft and moist texture inside. These cookies were a big hit with my entire family.Banana, Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip, Pecan Cookies: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
