Operation Popcorn, May be yes, May be no

So for the month of May it is down to the wire.  The flavor of the month is Chocolate Dipped Banana, and yes Hey Popcorn guys sense of humor just keeps on giving doesn’t it?  So with the help of my daughter Morgan, we concocted a plan.  Banana chocolate chip oatmeal cookie ice cream sandwiches.  And just for a little added bonus, rolled in chocolate dipped banana popcorn.  I have to say that we road tested those ice cream sandwiches, and yes they are delicious.  So check out next month, heaven only knows what Hey Popcorn Guy has in store for us next, always with a twinkle in his eye and a laugh….thank goodness.  Until next month, check out Hey Popcorn Guy on Facebook and see what flavors he is highlighting and where he will turn up next. 1 cup butter, softened 1 cup sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon ground cloves 3 medium bananas, mashed 2 cups quick cooking oats 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips Cream together butter and sugar.  Add eggs, one at a time.  Add vanilla.  Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and cloves.  Add to creamed mixture and combine.  Stir in mashed bananas, oats and chocolate chips. Grease baking sheets.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.  I actually baked these in a jelly roll pan with a silicone liner, for approximately 20 minutes and let them cool.  Then cut them with a biscuit cutter to get the round shape.
