Brandi's Story

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!


3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar splenda
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon banana extract
1 cup mashed bananas (about 3)
1/2 cup toasted coconut
1/2 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

Can you confirm that 1/2 cup of regular brown sugar can replace the splenda? I'd so love to try this recipe but do not want to eat Splenda!
