Awhile back I posted that we are a banana loving family. I don’t think there is ever a time we don’t have bananas in the house. I think we are turning into monkeys! If I start hanging from trees, please feel free to pull me down.
On that note, I’m constantly trying to find ways to use up those “said” bananas. I have this church cookbook that I received at our last base. It’s basically a collection of family recipes put together by the Catholic parishioners. It has become my go-to cookbook lately because all the recipes are easy & with real ingredients. When searching for a banana “anything” recipe, I came across a Banana Bread Cookies recipe and made them for our landlord. She was WAYYYY understanding on a situation that happened and I wanted to, I guess you could say, “sweeten her up.” But most importantly thank her. These are basically just mini banana bread pieces. And who doesn’t banana bread? I hope she liked them (we did) and you do too!
1 stick margarine
