Banana Oatmeal Cookies

I have never in my life heard on banana oatmeal cookies until my step-father. He gave me the recipe one year for Christmas and it fastly became our family favorite and go too (well beside my chocolate chip cookies! YUM). I did mess with the recipe a bit and I love it this way. First, I took out the shortening and added butter (any fat will do), I also change the sugar to coconut sugar, but for this one I did not because my mother is allergic to coconuts so I kept the Christmas cookies basic organic cane sugar. I added vanilla to the recipe, because any good cookie needs a splash of vanilla, it makes the cookies amazing in my book!! I did not cook these cookies, I froze them for Christmas but once cookie they were amazing!!!

You Will Need:

6 Organic Ripened Bananas
1/2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract
2 Large Pasture Raised Eggs
2 tsp Organic Cinnamon
1 1/2 Cup Organic Butter, softened
1 tsp Organic Nutmeg
4 Cups Organic Oatmeal
3 Cups Organic Flour
2 Cups Organic Sugar (or coconut sugar)
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt

Add softened butter to your kitchenaid stand mixer

Add sugar to the softened butter; mix on low for 5 minutes or until well combined

Add mashed bananas, vanilla, and eggs mix on low until combined

Add the dry ingredients; add flour last, mix then add flour 

Mix to combine (it is that easy!)

You can freeze the dough like this for Christmas time, or whenever, that is what we LOVE doing, then we pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes
