Just like banana bread in the form of a cookie, YUM! But watch out, they SEEM so lite that it is easy to eat a bunch of these!
1/4 c. butter, softened
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 overly ripe banana, well mashed
1 tsp. vanilla
1 and 1/4 cup flour ( I use whole wheat pastry or just plain unbleached)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
one half package of milk chocolate chips
Cream the butter, egg and sugar very well. Beat until it lightens in color a bit. Add vanilla and mashed banana, mix well. Sift (or whisk together) remaining dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until incorporated but do not over mix. Drop by large spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes @ 350 degrees. (Watch for the sides to begin to brown and the centers to be fully raised and no longer doughy).
