How to Make Banana Nut Cookies

  • Preheat an oven to 150 degrees Celsius. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
  • Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside.
  • Blend the sugars in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed.
  • Add the butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping down the sides of the bowl.
  • Add the egg, banana extract and mashed banana and beat at medium speed until smooth.
  • Add the flour mixture, 1 cup of chocolate chips and walnuts and blend at low speed until just combined (do not overmix).
  • Using round tablespoons, drop the mixture onto ungreased cookie sheets, 2 inch apart.
  • Sprinkle the cookies with the remaining chocolate chips (6-8 chips per cookie).
  • Bake for 20-24 minutes or until the edges of the cookies begin to turn brown.
  • Transfer immediately to a cool surface with a spatula.
  • Store in an airtight container.
