Hello to all of Remodelaholic’s friends! It’s Ruthie from What’s Cooking with and I’m SO happy to be here with all of you!

At our house we love banana’s- in fact I have to keep them stocked up just like milk or my kids think it’s time to go to the store!  BUT, every once in awhile… some of our banana’s get a little too ripe.

I like to save the over-ripe ones to make these Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Banana Cookies!
