when life gives you overripe bananas, make cookies

i buy bananas in a 3 lb. package at sam’s club because it’s still cheaper than buying fewer at the grocery store. the problem is i can rarely eat 3 lbs. of bananas before they get too ripe, and the fella doesn’t eat bananas. banana bread/muffins get old after awhile, so today i decided to make some chocolate chip banana cookies. the recipe calls for pecans rather than chocolate chips and has some spices, so it’s an interesting combination with the chocolate chips. i like it, though! and i just love the smell in the house when i bake something with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves!


About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.

    Liv, chocolate chip banana cookies look amazing! Be sure to check out Samsclub.com/meals for more recipes that include bananas in the mix. The Banana Breakfast Bars are one of my favorites, and you can even freeze them. Thanks for sharing the recipe AND for shopping at Sam’s Club! – Carrie from Sam’s Club
