Nutella, Banana & Cookies what’s not to like?

Things have been rather quiet around here recently, the boys and I have been recovering from the most recent round of preschool plague (exhaustion, cough, sniffles), and other than more laundry being created, not much has been happening.

Today brought a lull in our activities, we’d played outside, had lunch, and didn’t really feel inspired to start picking up the pile of stuffed animals in the playroom, so I took to the internet to find a recipe that might help deplete the bag of frozen bananas in our freezer. Banana cookies have been popular with the boys in the past, and a quick google search turned up Nutella Banana Cookies.

Nutella + Banana in a cookie? What’s not to like!

The recipe is a great starting place for oatmeal-banana based cookies and I will likely make them again adding my own twist. They’re easy to make and so far they’ve been very popular with the boys. I’ve included the recipe below as I made it.IMG_6242Nutella Banana Cookies
