Banana Oatmeal Cookie, chocolate chips & nuts

Chocolate chips and nuts are optional. A chewy cookie my mother made. Original recipe called for 3 bananas. I use only 2 as the banana doesn't dominate the flavor. Moist chewy cookie. Change time if needed so cookie is only lightly browned.

Yield: 1 serving ( Serving Size: 4 dozen )
