I've had some bananas getting overly ripe on my counter for the past few days now, but the thought of making banana bread AGAIN, didn't sound very appealing. For some reason, I keep buying bananas, and they keep going bad. That equals A LOT of banana bread. This usually isn't a bad thing, but I wanted another option.
Then this morning, I saw a recipe from one of my favorite bakers over at Cookies and Cups. This is such a fun blog, where Shelly posts so many amazingly-devilish recipes. When I saw her recipe for Banana Bread Cookies, I knew I had to try them. So... I did! :) You can find the recipe here.
These cookies aren't exactly what I had imagined, but I really like them! In Shelly's recipe, she used chocolate chips (which I wish I'd tried). I used raisins in my version, and thought they came out tasting like a cross between oatmeal cookies and banana bread; two of my favorite treats! Shelly also posted a recipe for Maple Cream Cheese Frosting (Mmm...), but I didn't have enough cream cheese to attempt it. You better believe I will next time!
|They were so good, Isla kept trying to sneak one. :)|
Regardless of whether you try this recipe or not, you should definitely go check out Shelly's blog. Everyone have a great week!
