Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip (flourless) Cookies

So I had a lot of ripe bananas sitting around and thanks to my friend Gina at Contemplating Beauty I had a craving for flourless peanut butter cookies. If you've never had flourless peanut butter cookies it's a must try.  They have an intense peanut butter flavor that is amazing.  I knew there was some way I could use up my bananas and make some peanut butter cookies at the same time.  So I found this recipe on Pinterest from Dinners for a year and beyond.

Operation Showered with Love

For a couple of years now I have been a fan of Operation Shower and their wonderful mission.  Last week I had the chance to lend a helping hand with one of their lovely events honoring military moms.  For those who are not familiar with Operation Shower, they are a nonprofit organization that provides baby showers for military families to help ease the stress of deployment. 

The experience was beyond what I expected.  There were 40 mothers, beautiful decorations, delicious desserts, and a showering of gifts. It was amazing and so touching!
