Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe comes via Cullen and Carol, one of the few times in recent history where I’ve baked something other than from my project baking book! These are a nice combination of banana and chocolate in cookie form. (Lesya typically puts chocolate in her banana bread, so it’s a combination we know and love in this family!)

465 g flour
4.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1.5 tsp salt
1 cup butter, softened
187 g sugar
105 g light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
280 g mashed ripe banana, about 3 bananas
340 g semi or bittersweet chocolate chips
chopped, roasted walnuts or pecans to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt). In a stand mixer with paddle, cream the butter and sugars. Add egg, vanilla, bananas, and mix to combine well. Add dry ingredients, mix well. Fold in chocolate and nuts if using. Place onto greased cookie sheets, about 1 tablespoon size, ~12 per sheet. Bake 12-14 minutes, then transfer to racks.
