Vegan Delicious Chocolate Cookies - Loving It Vegan

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

Banana may be one of these flavors that can get lost once you bake with it. It can be very delicate flavor. It always bums me out once that happens, cause I LOVE the taste of banana. And thus does the hubs.

So when good flavored banana treats come along, we move a little crazy for them.

These biscuits make the list of banana things to go mad for. Without a doubt.

And they're so moistthey melt in your mouth. Plus, using both oats and banana inside them, they are basically healthy, correct? And perfect for breakfast!

Making them is just as easy as eating them.

You begin by mixing all of those beautiful ingredients together.

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

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

To bake them, spoon out about a tablespoon of dough and produce a thick disc, as opposed to a chunk. They spread somewhat when baking, so don't put them too close together. Bake them for approximately 10-12 minutes for a nice, moist cookiecutter. So yummy!

1 other thing I really like about this recipe is really where it came out.

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

My dad and I made her gaufrettes (a French cookie -- my grandparents were French) a year or so ago. It was a custom for my grandmother to make them each Christmas! She also gave everyone a large tin of these, which has been really an effort with 6 sons.

I now know just how much of an effort it was! My goodness. She made them using a conventional gaufrette iron that goes over an open flame. My father and I had them around the cooker. They cook very fast and you have to be precise. Too little time and they kind of disintegrated to the iron. Too long and they burnt to the iron and we needed to wash it out.

My dad was pouring the batter and taking away the cookies, I had been operating the ironthe hubs was timing things. It took quite a few attempts to get it , but they were so good! I have attempted to create them again on my own and it works. I would like to share the recipe, however, the dang irons are all so tough to discover. And expensive. At some point, I'd like to just earn a cookie cutter with the same gaufrette flavor.

For now though, I am sharing these biscuits. I really don't believe I ever had them when she made them, but they're from her novel.

It is such an enjoyable recipe book to check through, too. There are many handwritten pages, clippings and newspaper recipes that were taped to the book. I adore the way they used to write recipes from the paper -- view publisher site they had the individual who submitted it's title and adorable little stories. It is so fun to browse ! What a different time on the planet!

Anyways, I don't know where this recipe came from. The paper looks like it was on a flier out of their square dance band or something (they have been big to square dance ). It's definitely from West Virginia, in which 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 will be more to come out of her recipe book, but for the time being enjoy the banana.
