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!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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.
