Bananas Foster Chewies


I had an overripe banana, some toffee bits, and walnuts, so I decided to try to use them all together. Not a bad first attempt, Carter loved them for breakfast, but I think I’ll keep working on them, as I wish they were “fuller” and not as flat as they ended up turning out. Oh, but now that I think about it, they would probably make a good ice cream sandwich . . .

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ lb Unsalted Butter
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ¼ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 Overripe Banana
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 1 cup Toffee Bits
  • 1 cup Butterscotch Chips
  • 1 ½ cups Walnuts, roughly chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add the banana and vanilla, then the eggs, 1 at a time, and mix well.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt and add to the batter with the mixer on low speed until just combined. Fold in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Drop the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, using a small cookie scoop or a rounded tablespoon.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes (the cookies will seem underdone). Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
