Those are the words my daughter used to describe these cookies.
I had 3 very ripe bananas on my counter and I wasn’t in the mood for my go to ripe banana recipe – The Best Banana Bread. I thought about Banana Bars or Banana Cupcakes but none of those really did it for me. I decided a banana cookie was in order. A Super Yummy banana cookie.
I wanted a nice moist cookie but I didn’t want it to be too cake like. I used 3 ripe bananas and oatmeal. It gave it just the right texture.
The crowning touch was the addition of white chocolate chips and a drizzle of nutella on top (thanks Lizzy for the nutella suggestion!)
Be sure and push down on the cookies a bit before you bake them.
After the cookies cool drizzle them with the nutella. I warmed the nutella up in the microwave until it was thin enough to drizzle with. Be sure to stir it well to get it drizzling consistency. I put it into a plastic baggie and snipped off the corner and drizzled
