Ingredients

¾ cup 175 mL Carnation® Fat Free Evaporated Milk
2 tbsp 30 mL vinegar
1 cup 250 mL ripe mashed bananas (2-3 medium)
1 banana, sliced (¼” /5 mm) and quartered (about ⅔ cup/150 mL)
1 tsp 5 mL baking soda
1 egg
¾ cup 175 mL packed brown sugar
¼ cup 50 mL Crisco® Canola or Vegetable Oil
1 tsp 5 mL vanilla extract
2 ½ cups 625 mL Robin Hood® Nutri Flour BlendTM Tastes Like White
1 tsp 5 mL baking powder
⅓ cup 75 mL semi-sweet chocolate chips
36 banana chips (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Combine evaporated milk and vinegar in a medium bowl. Stir well. Mixture will thicken. 
  3. Add mashed bananas, sliced bananas and baking soda to the evaporated milk mixture.
  4. Whisk egg, brown sugar, oil and vanilla in a separate large bowl.  Stir in flour and baking powder. Add banana mixture and stir until mixture is well combined. Add chocolate chips.
  5. Drop 2 tbsp (30 mL) dough on prepared baking sheets, about 2” (5 cm) apart. Place a banana chip on top of each cookie (if using).
  6. Bake in preheated oven, 13 to 15 minutes until the edges are lightly golden. Cool cookies on baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer cookies to cooling rack. Store cookies loosely covered or in the freezer.

Tips

  • If cookies become too soft, place them in a 350°F (180°C) oven for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add some crunch to your cookies with the addition of ⅓ cup (75 mL) chopped pecans or walnuts.
