Banana Drop Cookies. These are a light fluffy cookie and great for using up those overripe bananas! Easy recipe too!
Banana Drop Cookies! Everybody loves a cookie or two! This recipe is very easy and uses regular ingredients. It’s also a great way to use up left overripe bananas.
These Banana Drop Cookies are quite light and fluffy, soft to the bite, so don’t expect crunchy! They are absolutely delicious with a glass of milk or a cup of tea too.
The recipe was shared by one of our Lovefoodies supporters, Jana, who says she first saw the recipe on the back of a C&H Packet, and has been making these cookies ever since. It’s certainly a keeper recipe and Jana loves baking these with her son (who could quite easily eat them all if you let him!) .
Lovefoodies also tested the recipe out, and the photos show you what the cookies look like once baked. It’s a shame you can’t smell or taste via a computer, so that means you simply have to bake them yourself! So please enjoy our delicious Banana Drop Cookies.
