At our house we love banana’s- in fact I have to keep them stocked up just like milk or my kids think it’s time to go to the store!
BUT, every once in awhile… some of our banana’s get a little too ripe.
I like to save the over-ripe ones to make these Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Banana Cookies!

- 1 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 6 Tbsp butter, softened
- 6 Tbsp neufatchel cream cheese
- 1/2 C granulated sugar

- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
