Sadly, bananas can be one of those flavors that can get lost when you bake with it, since it is typically a subtle flavor. These Banana Oatmeal Cookies are by far the tastiest banana flavored cookie I’ve ever had.  I must warn you though, your kitchen will smell heavenly if you choose to make these! 

Not only will they keep moist and chewy for days, the flavor gets better after a day. Since they are filled with good for you things, like Bananas and oats, I always save some to have them with my morning coffee the next day.
