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!

Ingredients

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

1
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.
2
Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Mix in the mashed bananas.
3
Add the flour mixture, and stir until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips, coconut, and walnuts. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.
4
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!
