Cooking cookies with a toddler is a special kind of adventure full of fun, excitement, and a few messes. My little man’s favorite part of cooking cookies? Whirling the ingredients. In case you aren’t sure what this means, whirling = stirring in his dialect. Somehow we managed to whirl and bake the cookies, clean the kitchen, and eat a couple of the yummy treats without spilling on our clothes – though the risk was totally worth it! This particular recipe is a family favorite – banana, oatmeal, chocolate chip – and have never let me down. I added extra banana this time so the cooking time was a bit longer than usual. All in all, they were the perfect treat for a long weekend.
