These cake-like cookies use a ripe banana and mini semi-sweet chocolate chips.Â A great combination!Â If you like banana bread or muffins, you will love these Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies.
I found the recipe in The Best of Country Cookies book which was published by Reiman Publications in 1999.Â The book is no longer being sold by Reiman, but you can pick up used copies at Amazon.Â Â There are a lot of wonderful cookie recipes in it.Â
