Banana-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies‏

Will someone please share with me the secret to having a successful blog with lots of followers? That’s all I want in life.  I’m beginning to think, the only way to get followers or to have someone like your facebook page, is to have a giveaway.  I’m rummaging through my house to see what I can find. Ok, end rant….

If you’re in the mood for a chocolate chip cookie, I found these low point ones made with mashed banana and oatmeal. There’s even a little bit of butter in them. The texture for these cookies is not like your average chocolate chip cookie, but they still turned out ok. Your mouth with explode with yumminess like  fireworks going off during the 4th of July.
