Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies...Low Cal!
I have been attempting to cut calories of late but teatime just wouldn't be the same without a sweet of some sort. I came upon this recipe and thought it perfect! These cookies are quite tasty and have a cake-like texture. If you love both chocolate and banana you won't be disappointed.
Ingredients: 1/3 cup butter, softened (As usual, I use I can't believe it's not butter cubes) 1/2 cup sugar 1 egg 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup all purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon baking soda 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
In a small mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, banana and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda and mix. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by a tablespoonful 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet with parchment, silpat sheet or sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes or until light golden brown.

You need a village, if only for the pleasure of leaving it. A village means that you are not alone, knowing that in the people, the trees, the earth, there is something that belongs to you, waiting for you when you are not there. ~Casare Pavese

Never permit yourself to become the weak link in the chain of your generations.
Welcome! Please pour yourself a cup of tea and settle in and relax with me awhile. As you'll notice, I am captivated by ancient times, a soul misplaced in this modern day. I have a love for my ancestry and I believe people who grow up without a sense of how yesterday has affected today, are unlikely to have a strong sense of how today affects tomorrow.
