Oatmeal Thumbprint Cookies

Oatmeal Thumbprint Cookies by Custom Taste
We like to enjoy the sweeter things from the kitchen every once in a while, but we also don't want to use loads of flour, eggs, butter and white sugar so this helps curb our sweet tooth and work for our bodies all at once! Since we keep bananas on hand at all times we also look for different recipes to use them in, this happened to be the perfect fit. Mr. Custom Taste has a busy work schedule and some days making a full breakfast isn't always that simple, so I made these ahead of time! They were suppose to be more of a peanut butter and jelly cookie but then i thought, "why not mix up the topping!?" We hope you like them!

We happened to have steel-cut oats on hand (surprise to me actually, guess we bought them on accident)

If you have regular oats, grab your food processor, dump in your oatmeal and give a quick (about 1 minute) whirl
Pour your oats into the wet mixture and stir until fully incorporated
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
