Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
I have a confession to make… promise you won’t judge me?

 I’m not the biggest fan of bananas. They just aren’t my favorite type of fruit. With that being said I LOVE banana flavored candy and I like banana when it’s cooked in things but I just don’t care for the actual fruit. I know what you’re thinking; go ahead, call me weird if you want to. I don’t mind! I have a lot of weird quirks like that. I don’t care for cake, but I love cupcakes fresh out of the oven without any frosting. I don’t handle sweets, as in deserts real well, but I could eat a whole bag of cotton candy. I think you get the point.
These banana chocolate chip cookies call for a cup of mashed bananas, and they are divine. They really taste just like banana bread.  Bet you can’t eat just one!
Let’s get started…
In a medium bowl mix together  your flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
Cream together the sugar and butter.
Add in your eggs and vanilla.
Yum?  At least in this recipe it is!
Add your mashed banana, flour mixture, and lastly the chocolate chips.
Drop spoonfuls onto your prepared cookie sheet and bake.
The only bad thing about having made these a while ago is that when I go to post about them I seriously have to fight the urge to go back in the kitchen and make some more. I have a feeling no one would really mind though.
Now go make some, and share them with your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, just someone! Things like this aren’t meant to be kept to yourself people!
