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. Tip

    Banana masher! Let your kids go wild with a masher as they try to get rid of all the banana lumps.

  5. 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.
  6. Tip

    While you pour the ingredients together, ask your little helper to grab hold of the wooden spoon and mix all the ingredients together.

  7. 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).
  8. Tip

    Ask your helper to place a banana chip on top of each cookie. You can even ask them if they have a favourite ingredient they’d rather put on top – like a pecan, walnut or a square of a chocolate bar.

  9. 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.
