Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted in Cakes and Cookies

When I used to work on the Halifax Waterfront I sometimes went to grab lunch at the wonderful “Cabin Coffee” Café . This little place has the most amazing atmosphere, a cozy and homey one. Imagine a cold winter day and you’re sitting at the café having your hot soup and yummy sandwich in front of the fireplace, so nice. In addition to being a great place it also had the best banana chocolate chip muffins I’ve ever had. So this past Sunday I suddenly had an urge for cookies, I really wanted something with chocolate but had a banana on the countertop that was crying for help. And then it hit me! I can make my favorite banana chocolate chip muffin into a cookie! How perfect would that be?

In addition, this sudden urge of mine couldn’t have come in a better timing than this. I am a member at the Food Bloggers of Canada  and as such, I follow their updates and content. Imagine how surprised I was when I read about the “My Cookies Are The Best” contest, oh YAY! Perfect timing indeed. So I decided to both satisfy my crave for cookies and enter the contest. The winner gets a trip from Manitoba Canola Growers  to participate in the “FBC 2013 Conference” ; How exciting is that?? Wish me luck! Oh…and tell me what you think about my yummy, soft and banana flavored cookies.
