Banana Walnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies
One of my favorite Martha Stewart cookie recipes! It was first published in Martha Stewart Living in September of 2006 and has become a staple in our house ever since. Baking a batch of Banana Walnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies is a great way to use up overripe bananas, without having to resort to your old banana bread recipe. Don’t get me wrong, I love banana bread, and must have baked several hundred loaves over the years. My kids always enjoyed it best right out of the oven, and usually before it had a chance to cool off, half of the bread was gone. I’m sure that many of my friends enjoy it too. A nicely wrapped loaf of homemade banana bread always makes a welcome gift. Anyway, quick bread recipes will be the topic of another post …
The cookies taste delicious and keep very well for couple of days if stored in an airtight container. Best of all, there’s no need to feel guilty when you can’t stop eating them, because they are made with “good for you” ingredients.What could be better for you than bananas, oats, whole wheat flour, dark chocolate, and walnuts? So, whip up a batch of wholesome goodness and enjoy!
