These Soft Frosted Banana Bread Cookies are delightful, truly. They taste a lot like a heavenly bite of banana bread with the addition of a smooth brown sugar frosting spread on top. They taste even better the second day, will make good use of any spotted bananas you have lying around and  just might qualify as my new favorite cookie. I have to admit to making the twice in the past week, I enjoy them so much.

Hope you love them!

3. Grab a couple of bananas. You’ll want to use bananas that have brown spots all over them. Brown spotted bananas are super ripe and very sweet.

Peel the bananas and mash them. You’ll need 1 C total. Add them to the mixing bowl and beat to combine.
