It is my birthday today; I can’t think of any better ways to celebrate other than baking at home and play house with the new oven.
I have very ripe bananas begging to be used. So, I looked up Big Oven (an iPhone app) since I was curious about banana cookies!

1/4 cup Granulated sugar

1 large Bananas peeled and mashed
Mini Semisweet Chocolate Chips (I used just a bit over 1/4 cup)
1) Preheat Oven to 350 F
2) Coat two 12×18 inch cookie sheets either with parchment paper or cooking spray
3) In a small bowl – stir Flour, Baking Soda, and Salt.
4) Cream Brown Sugar, Granulated Sugar, and Butter with a mixer until smooth.
5) Beat in Vanilla, Egg, and Banana.
6) Stir in Flour mixture. When doughy, stir in Chocolate Chips.

Mm, took a bite of the cookie and made myself a cup of coffee. Chewy and delicious without being too sweet!
