I serve these cookies with a cup of milk for my little son that keep him fuller and energetic for a long time. These cookies are a handy and quick grab and go breakfast that helps many busy moms.

I grab a couple of these cookies before I leave home and have it on the go. Also, these cookies are an excellent way to use the over ripe bananas.

Smart Cooking Tips:

1. Use ripe banana in this recipe, it gives a natural sweetness and flavor to the cookies.

2. I added chopped walnuts and dates in these cookies. You can also add chocolate chips, raisins, currants in these banana oatmeal cookies.

3. If the dough is too dry to form a cookie shape. Add the extra amount of mashed banana and make a dough.

4. You can form the cookies into different shapes using cookie cutters. Place a cookie cutter on the parchment paper and fill the dough and remove the cookie cutter gently.

5. Make sure to choose the gluten free labeled oats for a gluten free cookies.

6. I add vanilla extract for flavoring the cookies, you can also add cinnamon powder or grated nutmeg.
