Drop by rounded teaspoons onto baking sheet. Bake 8 to 10 minutes.

**Thoughts~I love how fluffy these cookies are. I expected them to be more chewy, but they really weren't. It's also nice how the scent of cinnamon fills the air as you bake these cookies. Makes the home feel cozy!**

This recipe was given to me by Jeff's Grandma Rose.

Several months ago, I made banana oatmeal cookies (thanks to a blog I found with the recipe). I was skeptical but they were really good. And I gave some to a few new neighbors and they said they were surprised how much they liked them! Who knew there was more you could use old bananas for than just banana bread!
