Banana Cookies


Unsalted butter – 75gm, Sugar – 140gm, Egg – 1, Mashed bananas – 140gm, Baking Soda – 3gm, Maida – 280 gm, Salt – a pinch, Cinnamon powder – ½ tsp. Nutmeg powder – ½ tsp. Cloves ground – ¼ tsp. Choco chips – 50 gm

Method: Preheat the oven to 350*F. Beat the butter and sugar together until light fluffy. Add the egg into it and continue to beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. In a separate bowl, mix the mashed bananas and baking soda. Keep it for 2 minutes.

The baking soda will react with the acid in the bananas which in turn will give the cookie their lift and rise. Mix the banana mixture into the butter mixture. Whisk together the flour, salt, and spices. Add to the butter and banana mixture and mix until just combined. Fold pecans or chocolate chips (if using) into the batter. Drop-in dollops onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until nicely golden brown. Let it cool on wire racks. Keep in the airtight container once it’s cool.
