Banana Jumbos

In this recipe I will be introducing you to one of my favorite childhood cookie recipes, Banana Jumbos! I have a huge collection of family recipes that I will be sharing on my blog throughout the year. These are really moist with a cake like consistency and just so delicious to snack on. KID APPROVED!

If you are storing most of them I usually do put them in the refrigerator because they do get quite moist and can stick together. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
