Chocolate Banana Cookies with Macadamia Nuts

I have made a lot of cookies in my life. I have also witnessed the reactions that cookies have on people.  And I have been told by many friends, that these cookies, are “VERY good”. The banana in them is pronounced and the oatmeal is not. The texture is chewy, almost like a chocolate brownie cookie. Give them a try!!
