These Banana Oatmeal Cookies were our dessert at Mexican Train. OMG they were so delicious. I snuck a second one on my way out since I know Friend Carol reduces the sugar when she bakes by using sugar substitute. I just couldn't resist them. They were so good. Even Friend Janice enjoyed them and desserts with bananas are probably her least favorite dessert. I have made banana cookies, but these were hands down the best ones I have eaten. Thanks Carol for making them for our luncheon.


3/4       cup butter, softened
3/4       cup sugar (Carol used stevia)
3/4       cup brown sugar (Carol used 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons Splenda brown sugar blend)
2           eggs
1            teaspoon vanilla
1-1/4     cups flour
1            teaspoon baking soda
3/4       teaspoon cinnamon
1/2        teaspoon salt
2-3/4   oats
2           mashed bananas
1            cup raisins, optional (Carol omitted)
1            cup pecans, chopped
1            cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix together butter, sugar, brown sugar, until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
Stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Gradually beat into butter mixture. 
Add bananas.
Stir in oats, and nuts. 
Use a cookie scoop to put dough on ungreased cookie sheet. (Carol likes to bake the cookies on parchment lined cookie sheets.)
Bake 8 to 10 minutes.
Cool one minute on sheet then remove to cool completely.
