Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Banana Cookies Recipe

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!
