Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Banana Cookies

 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!
