Dairy-Free Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Cookies - NO OIL

Dairy-Free Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Cookies - NO OIL

I really love simple recipes that have just a few ingredients that come together in a small time frame. Of course, when the outcome is something tasty, it makes the simplicity easier to be appreciated and enjoyed. This is the case for some dairy-free (vegan friendly!) chocolate banana oatmeal cookies. These are great and can be made without oil by using an oil substitute - the bananas actually serve this purpose.
