30 Apr Banana & Dark Chocolate Cookies
These deliciously light cookies are quick to make and are perfect for a mid morning snack.
Soft Brown Sugar 100g
Honey 1 tbs
Banana 1 small
Self Raising Flour 200g
Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon 1 tsp
Dark Chocolate 100g
This can recipe can be easily made by hand however I use a mixer out of habit.
Pre heat your oven to 180 degrees celsius and prepare a couple baking sheet with some baking parchment.
Beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, on a low speed add the banana and the honey. You may need to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl to ensure the ingredients are well combined.
In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking powder and cinnamon.
Add the dry ingredients to the mixer, and beat on a low speed until combined.
Chop up your favourite chocolate and add it to the mixture. I like a dark bitter chocolate, although I have used smashed up Easter eggs when testing this recipe and it worked well too.
Using a tablespoon or your hands divide the mixture into 12 balls, about half the size of a golfball and place on the baking sheets.
Bake for 12 – 15 minutes, but check them after 12 minutes. They should be golden brown.
Let the cookies cool for a few minutes before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Don’t resist the temptation to eat them whilst still warm. They taste especially good when the chocolate is still gooey.
