Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Banana chocolate chip cookies was Adelin’s pick for Kids Choice. The kids went nuts over them. I had to bag them up and hide them before they got little tummy aches from eating to many. Banana chocolate chip cookies makes for a fun after school treat too.

The original recipe uses shortening resulting in a crispier cookie. I prefer to use butter which produces a cake-like cookie.
