I had a few bananas that were headed over the hill and needed to be used up before they completely turned to mush. My normal go-to recipe would, of course, be banana bread, but I was kind of tired of the same old thing. I found this recipe in Martha Stewart’s Cookies book and fell in love even before I made them. They’re basically a cross between chocolate chip cookies and banana bread – brilliant!
I’ve made a number of recipes from this book and I have to say, it’s definitely a keeper. It’s a cute, little chunky book, measuring in at 7" by 9" and almost an inch thick. It’s packed with 175 recipes and is organized into seven chapters: Light & Delicate, Rich & Dense, Chunky & Nutty, Soft & Chewy, Crisp & Crunchy, Crumbly & Sandy, and Cakey & Tender. And, as if all that wasn’t enough, it includes ideas for packaging and giving away your homemade treats. This book would make an excellent gift for just about anyone. But as long as you’re doing that, you might as well buy one for yourself too!
