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

Banana may be one of these flavors that could get lost once you inhale with it. It can be really subtle flavor. It always bums me out once that occurs, because I really like the taste of banana. And so does the hubs.

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

These biscuits make the listing of banana things to go crazy for. With no doubt.

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

Creating them is just as simple as eating them.

You have the typical suspects -- butter, brown sugar, white sugar, an egg, vanilla and mashed bananas. You begin with mixing all of those beautiful components together.

I have to warn you. The smell of the mixture -- using all the banana -- is intoxicating. The hubs was at the kitchen making the dough with me (we left a deal that included him carbonated with me) and we both had to work hard not to place our faces, or even a straw, right into it.

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

To bake themspoon about a tablespoon of dough and produce a thick disk, rather than a chunk. They spread somewhat 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 other thing I love about this recipe is really where it came out.

My grandmother (my father's mom) passed out in 2008. After I started draining a lot a few years ago, my uncle gave me her cookbook he'd had and didn't use. I have had it in my list to produce several her desserts ever since.

My dad and I made her gaufrettes (a French cookie -- my grandparents were French) a year or so past. It was a convention for my grandma to make them every Christmas! She also gave everyone a large tin of them, which had been quite an effort with 6 sons.

I now know exactly how much of an accomplishment it was! My goodness. She made them with a traditional gaufrette iron that goes over an open fire. My father and I had them around the cooker. They cook very fast and you need to be exact. Too little time and they kind of disintegrated into iron. Too long and they burnt to the iron and we still needed to clean it out.

My father was massaging the batter and removing the biscuits, I had been operating the ironthe hubs was timing things. It required a number of tries to get it right, but they were so excellent! I have attempted to make them on my own and it works. I'd really like to share the recipe, but the dang irons are so hard to discover. And expensive. Sooner or later, I'd like to just make a cookie with the exact same gaufrette taste.

For today though, I'm sharing these biscuits. you could try these out I really don't believe I had them when she made them, but they're from her book.

It's such an enjoyable recipe book to look through, too. There are so many handwritten pages, clippings and newspaper recipes that were taped to the publication. I like the way that they used to write recipes in the paper -- they'd the man who submitted it's name and cute little tales. It is so enjoyable to browse through them! What another time on earth!

Anyways, I don't know where this recipe came out. The paper looks like it was on a flier from their square dance group or something (they have been big into square dancing). It's definitely from West Virginia, where they lived.

In any event, I am so happy to finally share a recipe from her novel with you! I made a few changes to make them thicker and more puffier and they are delicious. There'll be more to come from her recipe book, but for the time being enjoy the banana.
