    Recipe Introduction

    Kris M.

    List of Ingredients

    2 large bananas mashed
    11 ounces dark chocolate chunk morsels
    1 1/3 cups walnuts rough chopped
    2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1 egg
    1 egg yolk
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3/4 cup butter softened
    1 cup brown sugar packed
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 tablespoon vanilla


    Preheat oven to 325 degrees and line a cookie sheet pan with parchment paper
    Start by adding butter to a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric hand mixer until fluffy
    Add sugar, egg, egg yolk, salt, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla to the bowl and mix util well combined
    In a separate bowl, sift together the flour and baking soda and then incorporate slowly into the butter/sugar batter
    Once everything is combined, fold in chocolate chunks, banana and walnuts until mixed
    Using a 1/4 cup measuring scoop (yes, these are big!) drop large scoops of cookies onto the cookie sheet, leaving 2 inches of space in-between each of the cookies
    Bake for 20-22 minutes (they will still be very soft so be gentle!)
    Remove from oven and let cool on cookie sheet 1 minute before moving the cookies to a cooling rack
    Store in an airtight container with parchment paper separating the layers .. not a zip-top bag... these are super soft baked and my first batch all stuck together in a bag, even though they were completely cooled
