Happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend! It was a beautiful Fall weekend here in Maine. I took advantage of the cool temps and decided at the last minute to run the Maine Half Marathon. Well, I say “run” loosely. I am still recovering from my race last week, so I did a walk/run for the event, which was great! It is hard to believe that it was over half the temperature here (45 degrees) as it was in Chattanooga (96 degrees). I did take some time to write up about that experience at Ironman Chattanooga, which you can read about <HERE>.
However, it is time to get back to normal life and move on from that difficult experience. I have definitely been a little depressed in the aftermath of not finishing the race. One thing that always cheers me up is spending time in the kitchen. So, this past week I have been doing a lot of baking and cooking. Yesterday, after the half marathon, I decided to make one of my all time favorite cookie recipes. These Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are so delicious and easy to make. The entire family loves them!

It does not take long to make these Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies! First, place rack in center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees.

Next, add egg and vanilla to sugar mixture and beat until combined. Slowly add in the flour mixture, about a cup at a time, and beat on low speed.
Then, gently fold in chocolate chips and banana.
Be careful not to mash up banana while stirring.
Place rounded tablespoonfuls of the dough onto a lined baking sheet 2 inches apart.
