Do you have a recipe for cookies using bananas?

Question by curious: Do you have a recipe for cookies using bananas?
I have some very ripe bananas I need to use up today. I already made banana bread, and was thinking of trying something new, like a cookie, since I am making holiday cookies today anyway. Does anyone have a recipe for banana cookies? Thanks!

Banana Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter, very soft
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup mashed banana (1 small/medium)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking sodaand salt.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugars. Beat in egg and banana, followed by the vanilla extract. Gradually, on low speed or by hand, add in the flour mixture. Stir in the oats (either whole rolled oats or “quick cooking”) and chocolate chips.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 11-14 minutes at 350F, until set and lightly browned.
Let cookies cool for about 5 minutes on the pan before transfering them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes 2 dozen cookies.

    No Bake Banana Pudding
    3 Bananas
    2 Packs of vanilla or french vanilla jello pudding mix
    Milk
    Vanilla Wafer Cookies (the round ones)
    Cool Whip (optional)

    Sliced the bananas in round semi-thick pieces
    Put one layer of cookies into a pan (foil pan is fine any shape)
    Make one pack of the pudding
    Add sliced bananas ontop of the cookies
    Pour pudding on top (enough to cover the bananas)
    Repeat these steps & Cool Whip on top & let it set in the fridge for a few hours
    I consider it done once the cookies have a soggy texture.
