Banana-Walnut-Chocolate-Chip Cookies

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!

I will definately have to try these and admit to having an issue with buying more bananas that I can eat, and then resorting to banana bread too!

Oh, excellent! One more reason (as though I needed another)to buy extra bananas and have them rot on the counter. The cookies look scrumptious.

Happy to have found your blog...

Most excellent! I'm adding my name to the list of banana overbuyers and subsequent bread makers...

Looking forward to the "real" 24 weeks starting in a couple!
