Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies #FillTheCookieJar

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!

Now that your family have tried these moist and delicious banana chocolate chip cookies they’ll be asking for them over and over again!  They’re one of our top-requested treats.  Good thing they are easy to whip up and they even make use of that bruised and over-ripe banana that’s been travelling back and forth in the lunch box all week!
