YUM! YUM! YUM! I love the thought of anything home baked. Bread, cakes, brownies, cookies, scones, biscuits, and basically any other mixture of flour and water or butter has my mouth drooling at just the thought. Lately I’ve been buying one bunch of bananas a week thinking that somehow this will be the time that my husband and eat all of them in one week….we’ve yet to succeed (unless we have visitors). We always get to the end of the week with a minimum of 4 (usually more) bananas left and I continually struggle to find what to do with the remainder. Well in my continual weeks of struggling I’ve come up with a few great suggestions.
But first, these delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies.
Seriously who doesn’t love a great chocolate chip cookie? These are a delicious twist on your average chocolate chip cookie.
Recipe was adapted from Averie Cooks here: Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
I used less oats and more flour as well as all organic cane sugar rather than one third white sugar and two thirds brown sugar, and for good measure added an extra banana. You can see that I had WAY more bananas that needed to be used. One bunch of bananas here in Uganda can have anywhere from 12 to 18 bananas. That’s a lot of bananas for two people. Chocolate chips are hard to come by around these parts so I used some small fruit chew filled chocolate candies…..anything chocolate will do!
These cookies truly are delicious. Giving you a yummy treat as well as a way to use all you have and not waste. The more bananas, the more cookies you can bake. I recommend baking a few extra to share with a neighbor or a friend!
