For dessert, Minoo selected a Chocolate Banana Cookies recipe to end the meal at South Arm Community Kitchen. This Chocolate Banana Cookies are great for breakfast or tea time snack. They can be easily packed into the lunch box.
This Chocolate Banana Cookie is soft and fluffy. It’s has a cakey texture. You may use various types of chocolate for this recipe, like milk, white, dark or flavoured chocolate. If you do not like banana, you may leave it out. To make this into a real chocolatey cookie, you may add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder.
We made this recipe with dark chocolate which is produced by adding fat and sugar to the pure cocoa solids. Dark chocolate is believed to reduce the possibility of heart attack when consume in small amount regularly. This is due it’s dark chocolate is a rich source of epicatechin and gallic acid which possess cardioprotective properties.
- 1 large ripe banana
- 4 oz (100g) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
- 2/3 cup (100g) soft light brown sugar
- 1 medium egg, beaten
- 1 cup (100g) all purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon (2.5ml) baking powder
- 1/3 cup (50g) oats
- 4 oz (100g) dark chocolate, broken into small chunks
We usually double or triple the recipe when we cook in the community kitchen. The left over food can be brought home for our family to try.
I love butter in the 1/2 cup stick. It is much easier to cut up the quantity required. I’m glad it can be found in the Real Canadian Superstore now.
