This is a family recipe that's been passed down. My mom always used to make a batch of these whenever we would go camping and my family and all the other campers would devour them within the first or second day. They're definitely my all-time favorite cookie. I try to use really ripe bananas, so usually, I freeze them until they're black. Easy to mash with some added sweetness!

This is the ultimate chocolate chip cookie. There are so many flavors rolled into this cookie. You have a chocolate chip cookie with banana and the texture of oatmeal. They're a tender and chewy cake-like cookie. The flavor of bananas mixed with chocolate chips is amazing. Basically, these are banana bread chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.
