Vegan Peanut Butter Biscuits - They MELT in your mouth!

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

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

Banana can be one of those flavors that could get lost when you inhale with this. It can be quite delicate taste. It always bums me out if that occurs, because I really like the taste of banana. And thus does the hubs.

So when good brewed banana treats come along, we go a little crazy for them.

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

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

Making them is just as easy as eating them.

You start with mixing all of those beautiful ingredients together.

I must warn you. The odor of the mixture -- using the banana -- is equally intoxicating. The hubs was in the kitchen creating the dough together with me (we made a deal that contained him baking with me) and we both had to work hard not to place our faces, or a straw, right into it.

Then you add all of the dry ingredients (which usually means you only use one bowl yay!) And mix it all together!

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

1 other thing I love about this recipe is really where it came out.

My grandmother (my father's mom) passed away in 2008. After I started baking a lot a few years back, my uncle gave me her cookbook that he'd had and didn't use. I have had it in my list to create a number of her desserts ever since.

My father and I left her gaufrettes (a French cookie -- my grandparents were French) a year or so ago. It was a custom for my grandmother to make them each Christmas! She also gave everyone a large tin of these, which had been really a feat with 6 sons.

I now know just how much of an accomplishment it had been! My goodness. She made them using a traditional gaufrette iron which goes over a open flame. My dad and I had them in the stove. They cook very fast and you need to be exact. Too long and they sort of disintegrated to the iron. Overly long and they burned into the iron and we all had to scrub it out.

My dad was minding the batter and taking away the cookies, I had been working the iron, the hubs was timing things. It required many tries to get it , but they had been so good! I've attempted to make them again on my own and it never works. Visit Website I'd like to share the recipe, however, the dang irons are so tough to discover. And pricey. Sooner or later, I'd love to just make a cookie cutter with the exact same gaufrette taste.

For now though, I'm sharing these biscuits. I really don't think I ever had them when she made them, but they are from her novel.

It is such a fun recipe book to check through, too. There are many handwritten pages, including clippings and paper recipes that were taped to the publication. I adore the way they used to write recipes from the newspaper -- they had the person who submitted it is name and cute little stories. It is so fun to browse ! What another time on earth!

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

Either way, I am so happy to finally share a recipe out of her book with you! I made a couple of adjustments to make them thicker and puffier and they're delicious. There'll be more to come out of her recipe book, but for now enjoy the banana.
