Chewy Choc-Banana Cookies

These cookies were literally thrown together in anticipation of kids charging home from school demanding a delicious snack.

Brenda Janschek - Chewy Choc Banana Cookies

These little puppies sure kept them quiet for a while. Well, until the next day, that is, when they forcefully relayed their expectation that more cookies would be appearing in their lunch boxes!

The banana kinda replaces an egg as the binder, giving it its chewiness, and extra sweetness. The dark chocolate gives it some delicious texture and a touch of decadance on top.

Banana and chocolate – a match made in heaven!
