Not-So-Guilty Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Banana Cookies

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Veggie_Girl

I love this recipe! I've been making it forever and finally have taken time to post it. It's nice to have another option for using up those over-ripe bananas. If I don't have time to actually make the cookies, I'll mash the bananas up in a tupperware and throw them in the freezer for later. ** Updated to be a vegan recipe. Also, I'd recommend replacing the cloves with cardamom for a twist on the original recipe! (3 July 09) **

These are so good! I used honey and semi-sweet chips since I'm not vegan myself. But I loved the healthiness of these (I used white wheat flour). The kids loved them too, which is always a bit of a challenge with stuff that is not loaded with butter. Thanks!
