Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

So tomorrow, we're going to a conference for the Namibia missionaries 
until Tuesday. I figured I'd bake some 
goodies for my tent-mates...

{of course. How could I go somewhere and NOT bring anything?} 
I was thinking something a little... different. And BAM!

Banana chocolate chip cookies! 

Notice they have ACTUAL chocolate chips... 
We got a care package the other day with BAGS of 'em! 
And they weren't even melted. :) 

The cookies got a little overdone on the bottom... again...
 Have I mentioned how much I hate that oven? 

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/3 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1/2 c. mashed banana
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. baking soda
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, banana, and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.

Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350ºF for 9-11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. 

Since, I'm going to be gone over Sweet Saturday, I'm just going to 
extend this weeks PARTAYYYY until NEXT Saturday! Sound good? 
That way you have a little more time to enter this week's creations too! 
Do whatcha can to get the word out! I'd love some more entries! :)

Have a great week{end} everybody!

Pin It!
