Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tonight I quickly threw together a batch of Tina's Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (she's my favorite healthy cookie baker)! The batter only took 5 minutes to mix and about 10 minutes to bake. These are everything you'd imagine they would be, all the flavors come through nicely. I don't see these lasting long in anyone's house.

We're having a spinach and mushroom frozen pizza for dinner and then looking forward to a romantic evening for two tomorrow night!
