Do you have a fear of ripe, brown bananas too? Maybe it’s because it’s Summer time but lately my bananas have been ripening at much quicker speeds than usual.  I like to eat bananas when they hit that perfect spot of just turning yellow – but no brown spots on them yet. The timeline for a perfect banana is slim.  Once it starts to brown and turn soft I can’t eat them “raw” anymore.  But that’s totally ok, because soft bananas are like the Cinderella of this story, except they don’t turn into a pumpkin at midnight, instead they turn into delicious cookies!

I have a bunch of banana recipes that I love, like these mini and moist banana muffins, and this banana nutella bread, but now I’m in love with these Banana Oat Bread Cookies!

These taste just like banana bread but in cookie form, so they make a great breakfast on the go!  They’re packed with oatmeal and walnuts for some crunch and chocolate chips for some sweetness.  Banana bread always tastes rich with spices, so this recipe uses 2 teaspoons of cinnamon to match the taste.
