Brandi's notes for this recipe:
I was looking for a way to use up browning bananas and I am not a huge fan of banana bread. I also, used Ben&Jerry's ice cream for my inspiration!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together, and set aside.
Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Mix in the mashed bananas.
Add the flour mixture, and stir until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, coconut, and walnuts. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.
Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes.
