Banana Nut Cookies

Do you have a book that’s so old but you turn to every now and then, this book is one of them. I bought .............. a long time ago (her cookies make me want to bake, I really want to make cookies, that’s delicious as her, because at that time Mrs. Fields’ Cookie was very popular, oops! now all of you can doubt my age), but I still use it often as the recipe is easy and the cookie are delicious . I like the taste of this cookie but I reduce the sugar to the lowest that the cookie’s still enjoyable, I have to accept that as we get older, we need less sugar (or if you are younger than me you can write a comment to ask for an original recipe). The cookie taste like a little banana cake with a lot of chocolate and nut, you can use chopped dark chocolate instead of normal chocolate chip which will make your cookie more sophisticated and yummy. I think you know the rule of using banana, don’t use the one that still bright yellow, we need a little darken here.

  1. ooooh! my mom would love these! thanks for sharing the recipe :)

    i just joined the DB this month too, just checking out everyone else's blogs, wanted to say hello :)

  2. I'm always looking for alternatives to banana bread, these look great!

  3. I made these cookies today and unfortunately I had to use half white flour and half white wheat flour so they had a more healthy taste but they were fantastic :D

  4. Hi there, I love to read your blog. It is exciting to read and the pictures and cookies are so beautiful. Can I ask if this cookies needed to refrigerate after baking? And how long can it stay in room temperature? Any expiry date?

    1. You can keep it in room temperature for 3 days, or 1 week in the fridge (fully cover or it will be dry).

    2. May i ask the texture of this recipe?
