Oatmeal Banana Cookie is one of my daughters favourite. She enjoys it any time. I am happy to make it any time too because they have all healthy ingredients in it. If you have over ripe bananas lying around, just make these cookies. It a great way to finish them and you also get to enjoy some tasty cookies. This is also one make ahead breakfast options that you can grab and go during busy mornings.

To make these oatmeal cookies, you basically need just 2 main ingredients - oatmeal and banana. You can just mix up these two and make cookies. You can also add up additional ingredients like dry fruits, nuts, chocolate chips, flavorings etc based on your preference and what you have on hand.

These are really nice and easy. I used chopped up dates as I had no raisins.
