Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies (GF)

These cookies are decadent, slightly dense, sweet but not TOO sweet, and full of simple, hearty ingredients. I don't know about you, but something about the combination of banana and chocolate chips reminds me of childhood! Also, feel free to substitute cashew butter for almond butter or sunflower seed butter for nut allergy purposes! These cookies are also really, really easy to make. You won't need to worry about a food processor, in fact I used a mixing bowl and a fork- and they came together in a flash. This recipe makes approximately 12 small cookies, feel free to double the recipe for a bigger batch. Hope you love them!

As always be sure to send me any pictures of your own batch!
