In a medium-size bowl, mash bananas fairly smooth, a few small chunks are ok. Add oats and cinnamon, mix well. Add in chocolate chips, mix again. If the mixture is really wet, add a few tablespoons of oats.

Grease a cookie sheet lightly. Using a tablespoon, scoop mixture, and place on cookie sheet.
