Oatmeal Banana Cookies

Oatmeal banana cookies…I’d like to think with a name like that they’d be pretty healthy!

Well…aside from the sugar, butter, and Reese’s Pieces…shhh.

I guess I am just hopeful  that the rolled oats, banana, and pecans outweigh everything else. Yep-I am going with healthy. In fact, I’d say these little wonders would go perfectly with a nice hot cup of coffee or tea for breakfast, a cold glass of milk,  or even a post workout snack-they do have protein after all (even if it’s mostly in candy form).

Oh forget it…

Or you could just eat these cookies anytime, because well…they are delicious! No reason needed.

A combination of a few fabulous flavors….soft banana bread, chewy oatmeal cookies, and of course peanut butter…these cookies will for sure make you smile. 

Regardless of needing an excuse or not, I can assure you…these cookies won’t last long.

Enjoy!
