Kids LOVE cookies! And so do we adults, of course. With back-to-school (or work) lunches soon making an appearance, adding a special little treat now and again to a healthy lunch box is a lovely surprise. Today I’m sharing our banana chocolate chip recipe with you. These little bites are light and fluffy and have been described as little muffin cookies! I’m pleased to have them as my first addition to a monthly group of Fill The Cookie Jar recipes. This month’s theme is Back to School!
