Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies - They MELT in your mouth!

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

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

So when great brewed banana treats come together, we move a little mad for them.

These biscuits make the record of banana items to go mad for. With no doubt.

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

Creating them is equally as simple as eating them.

You begin by mixing all of those lovely components together.

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

Then you add all of the ingredients (which means you only use one bowl yay!) And mix it all together!

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

1 additional thing I really like about this recipe is where it came from.

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

My father and I made her gaufrettes (a French cookie -- my grandparents were French) a year or so ago. It was a convention for my grandma to make them every Christmas! She gave everyone a big tin of them, which was really a feat with 6 sons.

I know exactly how much of an effort it was! My goodness. She left them using a conventional gaufrette iron that goes over an open fire. My father and I had them in the cooker. They cook very quickly and you need to be exact. Too little time and they sort of disintegrated into the iron. As long and they burned into the iron and we all needed to scrub it out.

My dad was minding the batter and removing the cookies, I had been operating the ironthe hubs was timing things. It required a number of attempts to get it , but they were so great! I have attempted to make them again on my own and it never works. I'd like to share the recipe, however, the dang irons are all so hard to discover. And expensive. Sooner or later, I'd like to just earn a cookie with the exact same gaufrette taste.

For today though, I am important source sharing these biscuits. I really don't think I ever had them when she made thembut they are from her novel.

It is such an enjoyable recipe book to check through, also. There are so many handwritten pages, including clippings and paper recipes which were taped into the publication. I adore the way they used to write recipes in the paper -- they'd the man who filed it is name and cute little stories. It's so fun to read ! What a different time on the planet!

Anyways, I do not know where this recipe came from. The newspaper looks like it had been on a flier from their square dance band or something (they have been big into square dance ). It's undoubtedly from West Virginia, where they dwelt.

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