Banana Cookies

Hi, it’s me Lily, again! I’m still in Arizona. Last week I was so sick and I’m all better now. I had Walking Pneumonia! Luckily, I got medicine, though and now I’m all better. I’m having so much fun visiting my friends and cousins. Before we left Texas, we made a recipe for you for Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies. They combine two of my favorite things – cookies AND bananas!

My mom says these cookies are perfect for getting rid of over-ripe bananas. You know the bananas are ripe enough to use when they’re brown all over. The more brown they are, the sweeter they taste! And they will mix better with the batter/dough. The bananas also make the cookies super moist and chewy! So yummy and so easy!

    I think this would be great for tricking my little picky eater to eat a banana! Thanks for sharing.

      Hey,

      They look delicious, I just made them they taste very good, but they are a bit flat. I don’t know why this keeps happening but last week I made some chewy chocolate chip cookies and they were not chewy.

      I follow the recipe but 🙁 I’m from Europe and normally I use grams/ml. I bought some cups though.

      Hi I’m a newbie (not even) in baking sweets. I have failed once before and I’m actually still afraid to give baking another shot.
      Anyway, here are my questions:
      1. What do you mean by “cream the butter…”?
      2. Do I need a mixer? Like I said, I’m a newbie, so I haven’t invested in baking stuff yet.
      3. Is this unsalted butter?
      4. Can I use brown sugar instead of white?

        Ask away 🙂 Creaming the butter means mixing with a hand mixer or like a kitchen aid. It gets light & fluffy 🙂 I do like to use unsalted butter when baking & I have not substituted for brown sugar. I would stick to the white 🙂 Good luck!!
