I don’t wanna work… September 26, 2010

Baking is the best form of procrastination one can pursue. Why?? 1) You get to be creative and 2) The outcomes is a sweet heavenly reward. While I have neglected grocery shopping recently, being the fatty bear that I am, I always have baking supplies on hand πŸ™‚ So I kicked my ginormous study binder aside and plugged in the kitchenaid!

Ordinarily, when I have bananas going to the other side I have the tendency to make banana bread, but what do you do when you only have 1 banana??? Not nearly enough to make the delicious banana bread, but never fear I gave a twist to an all time favorite cookie putting that banana to good use…Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies!! And the super plus, I like to tell myself they are more healthy because you use less egg by putting in the banana (we’ll ignore the fact there is still 2 sticks of butter in there πŸ˜› ) So without further ado, kick aside whatever task you’ve been busting your butt working on and take a little break by baking up a batch of these. Enjoy!
