Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies!

27 Mar

I love bananas. My dad loves bananas too. He used to sing this song to me about loving bananas when I was a kid that’s called “I love bananas because they have no bones”. Whenever I’ve sang the song to others, they’ve responded that they’ve never heard the song. It turns out, its an older one… from the 1930’s. If you’re feeling jazzy, you should give it a listen! You can hear the song here – forgive the long intro for the song, but its an awesome song.

Bananas are going extinct. The genus of banana that we eat today is actually dying out due to a fungus, scientists estimate, will wipe out this type of bananas we eat. You can find out more about this unfortunate fate by listening to an informative podcast from NPR.  I feel like I’m giving a PSA to my blog readers, but you ought to cherish your bananas while they’re around! Make some Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies, why not!?

Now… about these cookies… they’re a beautiful dichotomy between a muffin and a cookie. Seriously. Right in the middle. They’re fluffy, sweet, and fun. Hope you enjoy!

You’ll Need: Cookies

  • 2 bananas
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 a lemon- juiced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1 t baking powder
  • Dash of salt
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 2T honey

For THE {Nutella Cream} SAUCE:

(Optional)

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4T Nutella
  • 4 T Confectionar’s Sugar
  • 2T Vanilla

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325*F
  2. Mix the bananas, sugar, brown sugar, lemon, vanilla and egg in a bowl. Once the bananas are mixed well, sift the dry ingredients into the mix.
  3. Finally, add the chocolate chips and mix, and finally the honey.
  4. The result is something between a batter and a dough. Divide the batter on trays and bake for 15 minutes
  5. When they are finished, they will be fluffy and light:
  6. If you feel so compelled, you can make a cream for the cookies, and make sadnwiches out of the cookies!
    • Mix 4 tablespoons of the cream with the Nutella, vanilla and confectioner’s sugar in a blender or food processor and make mix until it forms a thick sauce.
    • Whip remaining cream in a separate bowl, until the cream forms soft peaks. Gently fold the Nutella sauce in with the whipped cream until it is evenly combined.
    • Put it in between your cookies, mmmm so delicious. I took a bite from one and too a photo, its so fluffy and nice!
