Is there anyone in the universe who enjoys packing? It's ironic that it is such a detestable chore for most people since the event that follows packing is vacation. Tomorrow we are setting out on our last summer adventure. We will spend nearly a week with family, most of whom we only get to see once a year. We leave in the morning, and guess what?! I have not started packing! The laundry is folded and ready to be put into suitcases. Does that count for anything? Will somebody please come pack for me? I'll trade you for a stack of these Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies. They would totally be worth it.
My four-year-old sunk his teeth into one of these babies and said, "Whoa, Mom. This is the best cookie I have ever had." I have to agree. They are really good. And they are a great, quick way to use up ripe bananas.
Throw a few dry ingredients together in a medium bowl.
And the ooey, gooey, sugary ones in another.
Mix until creamy and slowly add the dry ingredients until combined. Add a ripe banana, mash it up and stir it all together.
Add some chocolate chips.
Drop by spoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets and bake! Ten to twelve minutes should do it.
This recipe yields about 24 cookies.
Have a great week! Uhh, nobody is knocking at my door yet, so I suppose I'll eat the cookies myself. And then pack.
