Banana-Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Everyone should have a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe. And it;s only icing on the cake if your recipe pleases vegans and an entire team of junior high swimmers alike.

I love cookies. The addition of bananas and oatmeal is just a bonus because we all know that the real star is the chocolate. My go to cookies are simple to bake and if I decide to eat all of the cookies in dough form itโ€™s easy on my belly, too. Not that that happens often or anything. Plus they make me look like a fun, baking swim coach to this kids and a health conscious coach to the parents.

And if vegan, oatmeal, and dough didnโ€™t have you sold โ€“ did I mention this recipe belongs to Bethanny Frankel? And you can wrap them in ribbons.
