Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I usually have one or two bananas that get too ripe before we can eat them. Instead of making banana bread this time I tried something different!

1 3/4 C Flour

1 t Baking soda

1 t Salt

1 C (2 sticks) Butter, softened

3/4 C Sugar

3/4 C Packed brown sugar

1 t Vanilla extract

2 Large eggs (I used fresh!)

2 C Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

1/2 - 3/4 C Nuts (optional)
1 Mashed banana

Preheat oven to 375. Combine flour, salt and soda and set aside. Cream butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla. Add banana. Once mixed add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each. Slowly mix in flour mixture. Once well blended, fold in chocolate chips.

Chill for 15 minutes to make dough easier to work with. Drop by spoonful onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes, then move to cooling rack.
