Vegetarian Peanut Butter Cookies - They THAW in your mouth!

All these Banana Oatmeal Cookies are hands down the very best banana flavored cookie I've ever had. Not only are they moist and simmer for times, but they are unmistakably banana-y.

Banana can be one of those flavors that may get lost once you bake with it. It can be really delicate taste. It always bums me out if that happens, because I really like the taste of banana. And so does the hubs.

So when great flavored banana treats come along, we go a little mad for them.

These biscuits make the list of banana items to go crazy for. Without a doubt.

And they are so moistthey almost melt in your mouth. Additionally, using both banana and oats inside them, they are basically healthy, right? And perfect for breakfast!

Creating them is equally as easy as eating them.

You have the typical suspects -- butter, brown sugar, white sugar, an egg, vanilla and mashed bananas. You start with mixing all of those lovely ingredients together.

I must warn you. The smell of that mixture -- together with the banana -- is equally intoxicating. The hubs was at the kitchen making the dough together with me (we made a bargain that contained him with me) and we both had to work hard to not put our faces, or a straw, right in to it.

Then you add all the ingredients (which means you only use one bowl yay!) And combine it all together!

To bake them, spoon about a tablespoon of dough and produce a thick disk, instead of a ball. They spread a bit after baking, and thus don't place them too close together. Bake them for about 10-12 minutes for a nice, moist cookiecutter. So yummy!

One additional thing I love about this recipe is really where it came out.

My grandma (my father's mother ) passed away in 2008. Once I started baking a lot a couple of years ago, my uncle gave me her cookbook that he'd had and didn't use. I have had it on my list to create a number of her desserts ever since.

It was a convention for my grandmother to make them every Christmas! She also gave everyone a big tin of them, which has been really a feat with 6 sons.

I now know precisely how much vegan cookie recipes of a feat it was! My goodness. She made them with a conventional gaufrette iron that goes over an open fire. My dad and I had them in the stove. They cook very fast and you have to be exact. Too long and they sort of disintegrated to the iron. Overly long and they burned into the iron and we had to wash it out.

My father was massaging the batter and removing the cookies, I was working the iron, the hubs was time things. It required a number of tries to get it , but they had been so excellent! I've attempted to create them on my own and it never works. I'd like to share the recipe, but the dang irons are so tough to discover. And expensive. Sooner or later, I'd like to just make a cookie with the same gaufrette flavor.

For today though, I'm sharing these biscuits. I don't think I ever had them when she made thembut they're from her novel.

It's such an enjoyable recipe book to look through, also. There are many handwritten pages, clippings and paper recipes that were taped into the publication. I adore the way they used to compose recipes in the paper -- they had the man who filed it is name and adorable little stories. It's so enjoyable to read through them! What another time in the world!

Anyways, I do not know where this recipe came from. The newspaper appears like it had been on a flier out of their square dancing band or something (they were big to square dancing). It is definitely from West Virginia, where they lived.

Either way, I am so glad to finally share a recipe out of her novel with you! I made a few changes to make them thicker and puffier and they are delicious. There'll be more to come from her recipe book, but for now like the banana.
