I am not sure about you, but we always have leftover Bananas each week.
I only like Banana’s when they are freshly bought, but the amount of times I forget they are on the side and then there is just brown Banana’s.
Thankfully I love Banana Loaf and Muffins so it is always a nice excuse to bake them, so when my friend Sunvill shared a Banana Cookie recipe with me I knew they had to give them a try.
She found the recipe on an American Blog called LoveFoodies via Pinterest, it really is so simple and as they turned out perfectly I thought I would share it here converted into British measurements as I know some people find the conversion from cups a little tricky.
The original recipe makes 50 cookies, but I did not want to make that many as we would just eat them, so I have gone with a recipe that makes approximately 25/30 bite sized cookies.
Warning, these are not a standard hard cookie, they are more like a soft cake style cookie, which the kids have loved

We are enjoying these a little too much, I am not sure they will make the end of the week. I would have added some Chocolate Chips as it is a favourite combo of mine but we had run out.
I am thinking these would be great peanut butter flavoured too, so watch this space as I am going to try changing the recipe up.
If you are looking for something to bake with the kids this half term then this is perfect, if you do give them a try let me know how you got on.
