Banana Oatmeal Cookies using Raisins.

All these Banana Oatmeal Cookies are hands down the very best banana flavored cookie I have ever had. Not only are they really are moist and chewy for times, but they're unmistakably banana-y.

Banana can be one of those flavors that could get lost once you bake with it. It can be quite subtle taste. It always bums me out if that occurs, cause I really like the taste of banana. And so does the hubs.

When great brewed banana treats come together, we go a little mad for them.

These cookies make the listing of banana things to go crazy for. With no doubt.

And they're so moistthey nearly melt in your mouth. Plus, with both oats and banana inside them, they are basically healthy, correct? And perfect for breakfast!

Making them is equally as simple as eating them.

You start with mixing all of those beautiful ingredients together.

I must warn you. The smell of the mixture -- together with the banana -- is intoxicating. The hubs was at the kitchen which makes the dough with me (we made a bargain that contained him baking with me) and we had to work hard not to put our faces, or a straw, straight in to it.

You then add all the ingredients (which means you simply use one bowl -- yay!) And mix it all together!

To bake them, spoon out about a tablespoon of dough and create a thick disc, instead of a ball. They spread somewhat after baking, so don't put them too close together. Bake them for approximately 10-12 minutes for a fine, moist cookie. So yummy!

One other thing I really like about this recipe is where it came from.

My grandmother (my father's mother ) passed away in 2008. Once I started baking a lot a couple of years back, my uncle gave me her cookbook he'd had didn't use. I've had it in my list to make several her desserts since.

My dad and I left her gaufrettes (a French cookie -- my grandparents were French) a year or so ago. It was a tradition for my grandma to make them each Christmas! She gave everyone a huge tin of these, which has been quite a feat with 6 sons.

I know just how much of an effort it had been! My goodness. She left them with a conventional gaufrette iron that goes over a open flame. My dad and I had them around the stove. They cook very fast and you have to be exact. Too long and they sort of disintegrated into iron. Too long and they burned into the iron and we still had to clean it out.

My dad was minding the batter and taking away the biscuits, I was operating the iron, the hubs was time things. It took a number of attempts to get it right, but they had been so excellent! I've tried to make them again on my own and it never works. I would love to share the recipe, however, the dang irons are all so tough to discover. And expensive. At some point, I'd love to just earn a cookie with the identical gaufrette taste.

For today though, I am sharing these cookies. I don't believe I ever had them made them, but they're from her book.

It's such a fun recipe book to check through, also. There are so many handwritten pages, clippings and newspaper recipes that were taped to the publication. I like the way that they used to compose recipes at the paper -- they had the person who submitted it is name and adorable little tales. It is so fun to read through them! What another time on earth!

Anyways, I don't really know where this recipe came from. The newspaper appears like it was on a flier out of their square dance band or something (they were big to square dancing). It's undoubtedly from West Virginia, in which they lived.

Either way, I'm so happy to finally talk about a recipe out of her book with you! I made a couple of changes to make them thicker and puffier and they're delicious. There'll be more to come out of her recipe book, but for the time being enjoy the banana.
