Author: Erin Brooks
Recipe type: Dessert
125g butter at room temperature
⅔ cup raw sugar
⅓ cup coconut sugar
1 large free-range egg
1 ripe banana, peeled and mashed
2 cups self-raising flour
A pinch of cinnamon
⅔ cups dark chocolate, roughly chopped into chunks
⅓ cup walnuts, roughly chopped
Heat oven to 180 degrees centigrade.
Line a cookie sheet with baking paper or silpat.
Beat butter with a stand mixer until fluffy.
Add the sugar and beat again on high until well combined.
In a separate bowl, combine the egg and banana and whisk to a uniform consistency.
Add half of the mixture to the sugar, mix well and then add the remainder of the mix.
Sift in the flour and cinnamon and mix well.
Add chocolate and walnuts and mix through with a spatula.
If baking now: Grab spoonfuls of mixture and shape into cookies. Place on lined tray and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden.
If freezing for later: Pour out mixture onto a large sheet of baking paper and shape into a log. Wrap well in cling film and store in the freezer. To bake, take a sharp knife and cut off slices, place on lined tray and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden.
