Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies for breakfast? Yes, absolutely! You can indulge in Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies any time of the day. They are moist, hearty, delicious, addictive and really easy to make.

I began with a basic oatmeal cookie recipe and added 2 mashed bananas, pecans, mini chocolate chips and a little shredded zucchini. The result is a moist and chewy, banana bread-like confection.
