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!

Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.

Here are some of the ingredients you’ll need:

Whole Spelt Flour or White Spelt Flour
Dark Chocolate Chips
Rolled Oats
