I found that part of the recipe to be especially helpful because I've made quick pantry cookies like these before and found that the center was always slightly underbaked when in this ball shape. So definitely flatten a bit before popping them in the oven! I found these to be perfectly simple and even a quick breakfast treat. And because they are more granola bar-like, I think they'd also serve as a healthy sweeter snack to make before a hike or spending time outside! It also makes your house smell like banana bread, so that's a plus!
