These cookies have the natural sweetness of fruit, contain little butter or sugar, and are nice and soft on the inside. The dough is so delicious that you won't be able to stop sampling them as you bake.
Place the butter (returned to room temperature), sugar, egg and liquor into a bowl in that order and mix well.
Combine the flour and baking powder, sprinkle it in to the bowl from Step 1 and mix in with cutting motions. Tip: Don't knead.
Mix the roughly chopped banana and the broken chocolate together.
Spoon the dough onto a baking tray, about 1.5 cm thick.
Bake for 12 minutes at 355F/180C. When they have cooled, they are done. Adjust the cooking time as necessary.
This is what they look like on the inside. Layers of air and soft banana.
Add syrup or jam and enjoy.
Story Behind this Recipe
I needed to use up a ripened banana. I came up with a tasty cookie recipe with an interesting texture.
It's easy because all you do is mix and bake. There's no need to let the dough sit. After baking, even if they are soft, they are fine as long as the underside is slightly browned. Mind you don't bake too much because they will harden.
