Chocolate banana cookies

This is a quick and easy recipe for chocolate banana cookies. They are perfect for afternoon guests and even more perfect for you children’s lunch box, if you decide to give them an extra little treat. I used my friend’s tip on what to do with left over Easter chocolate – you can find it in her lovely blog.

Ingredients: 125 g butter, 125 g sugar, 2 mashed bananas, 1 egg, 175 g flour with half a teaspoon baking soda, 100 g chocolate chips and 50 g sliced almonds.

Beat sugar and butter until creamy. Add the egg and bananas. Mix well. Sift flour with baking soda and carefully combine all ingredients. Add chocolate chips and almonds. Distribute into even portion onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes at 180 degrees.

    I never thought of putting banana in biscuits but I will try it soon… when bananas in Australia become affordable again (they are still very expensive post Cyclone Yasi). Thank you for the mention too! 🙂 x

  3. I wish could send you some. They are so cheap right now, even the organic ones. The prizes are as low as 99c a kilo.
