I’m the type of person that thinks fruit is not a dessert. Sorbet? Fruit tarts? No thanks, give me a real dessert! Bananas, however, are the exception.
I love banana desserts. Chocolate and banana go together like peanut butter and jelly. Banana’s are super sweet and high in carbs so no wonder I love them. This recipe doesn’t require a mixer and is super fast to put together. These cookies taste like banana bread and who doesn’t love banana bread!?
I love cookies that are cake-like. These cookies are super light and fluffy so you could eat like 10 in one serving. This recipe includes 1 mashed up banana in it and wow, what difference it makes!
