Oh She Glows 20 Greatest Vegan Cookie Recipes!

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

Banana may be one of those flavors that may get lost when you bake with it. It can be quite delicate taste. It always bums me out if that occurs, because I LOVE the taste of banana. And so does the hubs.

When good flavored banana treats come together, we go a little mad for them.

These cookies make the record of banana items to go crazy for. Without a doubt.

And they're so moistthey practically melt in your mouth. Additionally, using both oats and banana in them, they're basically healthy, correct? And ideal for breakfast!

Creating them is just as easy as eating them.

You begin with mixing all those beautiful ingredients together.

I must warn you. The odor of the mixture -- using the banana -- is intoxicating. The hubs was in the kitchen creating the dough together with me (we left a deal that contained him baking with me) and we both had to work hard not to place our faces, or even a straw, straight in to it.

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

To bake themspoon out about a tablespoon of dough and create a thick disc, as opposed to a ball. They spread somewhat when baking, so don't place them too close together. Bake them for about 10-12 minutes for a fine, moist cookie. So yummy!

One additional thing I love about this recipe is where it came out.

My grandma (my father's mom) passed out in 2008. Once I started baking a lot a few years back, my uncle gave me cookbook that he'd had didn't use. I've had it in my list to produce several her desserts since.

It was a tradition for my grandmother to make them every Christmas! She gave everyone a large tin of them, which had been quite an effort with 6 sons.

I now know just how much of an accomplishment it had been! My goodness. She left them using a conventional gaufrette iron which goes over a open flame. My dad and I had them on the cooker. They cook very fast and you need to be exact. Too long and they kind of disintegrated into iron. As long and they burned into the iron and also we had to clean it out.

My father was minding the batter and taking away the cookies, I was working the ironthe hubs was timing things. It took quite a few attempts to get it right, but they were so excellent! I've tried to make them on my own and it never works. I would love to share the recipe, but the dang irons are so hard to discover. And expensive. At some point, I'd like to just make a cookie with the exact same gaufrette flavor.

For today though, I'm sharing these biscuits. I don't think I had them made thembut they're from her book.

It's such an enjoyable recipe book to check through, too. There are many handwritten pages, including clippings and paper recipes which were taped into the publication. I love the way that they used to write recipes from the newspaper -- they had the man who filed it is name and cute little tales. It's so fun to read through them! What another time on the planet!

Anyways, I do not really know where this recipe originated from. The paper looks like it was on a flier out of their square dancing band or something (they were big to square dance ). It's definitely from West Virginia, where they lived.

In any event, I am so glad to finally share a recipe from her book with you! I made a couple of adjustments to make them thicker and puffier and they're delicious. There will be more to come from her recipe book, but for now like the banana.
