The world's Ugliest - Tastiest BANANA OAT M&M COOKIES

Pin It Now!

Anybody remember the old M&M ad that proclaimed they "melt in your mouth, not in your hand"?

Well, they do melt in Banana Batter.

But, ignore the ugly; close your eyes and you will LOVE THESE!  This is a version of banana bread turned into a cookie.  Yet another use for those brown over ripe almost going bad bananas.  And a delicious use it is.

Naturally sweet from the bananas,with the extra fiber benefits of oats and the Earthy chocolaty goodness of CHOCOLATE Candies (M&Ms).  I also added some walnuts for an extra crunch.

Like I said, I will admit to ugly...  If you admit they are wonderful!
