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.

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.

  1. I usually buy Fraser Valley Unsalted Butter Sticks. It’s more expensive than whole slab. Wal-Mart sells them the cheapest but lately everyone has been selling them at over $6.00. How much is Superstore’s brand?

    1. Hi Lissa, I just checked with Marian who did the groceries shopping for the Cooking Club for Seniors and she told me that the new packaging is about the same price as the regular, i.e. $3 plus.
