SOFT BANANA OATMEAL COOKIES WITH BROWN SUGAR CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

Now that’s a mouthful. 

Speaking of mouthful. I wish I had a mouthful of these cookies right now. 

Am I the only person that buys bananas with the intention of allowing them to ripen up? 

What? 

People actually eat bananas when they aren’t smashed up, mixed with sugar and flour and then baked into a delicious treat? 

Weird. 

JK, dawg. 

I actually eat a lot of bananas. 

I use bananas to sweeten almost every single smoothie I’ve ever made. You should check those out. This is a good one. Or this one. Or this! It’s my latest obsession. 

If you drink one of these in the morning, you totally have room for like five of these cookies. 

Or just be a normal human and eat one. 

You could definitely do that, too. 

These cookies almost have a cake like consistency, but the oats add a nice unexpected crunch. The sweetness of the brown sugar in the frosting offsets the tangy of the cream cheese so beautifully. With the addition of a few spices, these cookies are irresistible!

Betcha can’t eat just one! 

Partly because this recipe makes a couple dozen, but mostly because they are so insanely delicious.
