  1. These look delicious! 🙂 I’ve got one more for you– 2 ripe bananas, 1 c quick oats, 1/2 c chocolate chips, & a heaping spoonful of peanut butter. Mix well, plop onto cookie sheet, bake at 350 for 15 mins. They taste a bit like chocolate chip banana bread and if you used organic ingredients? They’d practically be good for you. 🙂
