I love oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and as a kid, my Mom would sometimes add banana to her cookies which was delicious. This recipe is a combination of a lot of my favorite banana bread recipes and the oats add some additional heartiness and health benefits. I also learned a great trick from a friend and always caramelize my bananas in the oven for any banana bread recipe which adds some additional deep banana flavor and sweetness. You could easily make this without the chocolate chips and add nuts, blueberries, or cranberries.One thing to note about this bread is that it is much denser than you average banana bread.

Place the bananas, with the peels on, in the oven for about 10 minutes until the skins become completely black. This will caramelize the banana and add more intense flavor to the bread. This is a great trick if your bananas aren’t completely ripe. Let them cool. Remove peels and mash with fork. If you are pressed for time, you can skip this step and just use very ripe mashed bananas.
