Tales of the Dinner Belle

By Brenda Stanley

I love sweets, but there are times during the day I just need a treat but I don’t want something too rich or sugary.  My banana oatmeal cookies are perfect for this craving.  They are made with no sugar and they bake up with a hearty and slightly sweet flavor.  They are also great for a quick breakfast- banana and oatmeal- you can’t beat that. There are no eggs in this recipe and they’re low fat, making them a healthy pick-me-up that will also satisfy that sweet tooth.
