Banana S’mores Cookies

It doesn’t seem to matter how many bananas we buy, we always have extras. It’s probably because once they start to get brown spots, no one wants to eat them. So, I like to figure out new ways to use those ripe bananas.

I wasn’t too sure about using bananas in a s’mores cookie, but it really worked! The cookies were moist and cakey with a nice banana flavor, and the banana seemed really go with the chocolate and marshmallow (though what doesn’t go well with chocolate and marshmallow).

    We found these delicious but very sweet, maybe it is our English palette. For the second batch I omitted the chocolate and marshmallow and had them just as cookies. In the third batch I added in Apple chunks and these came out delicious. As you can tell there was a lot of mixture , may have made more because of converting cups into metric, regardless they were a huge hit!

      They are quite sweet between the cookie, the marshmallow, and the chocolate. Apples sound like a fantastic addition. Glad you enjoyed the cookies! =)

    These were so so so good! I even substituted 1/2 a cup of butter for 4oz Greek yogurt and they were still incredible! A totally socking bite to take, and so delish!
