I had peanut butter, I had frozen bananas, I had oatmeal, I had raisins, and I wanted cookies. I just couldn't find the right recipe, so modified what I could find and came up with this one. The resulting cookies are pretty good, but are missing "something". I can't put my finger on it. If it was a savory recipe, I would say it needed more salt. Otherwise, I was pretty happy with them. They make a soft cookie with a good bite.
