I wanted something different than a regular cookie or muffin, so I combined them. I figured, why not? My family loved them and it's a great base for adding other mix-ins or even making oatmeal cookies out of it. I wanted to reduce the sugar so I used Splenda & Splenda brown sugar, but the regular stuff works too.

How to Make Banacot Muffkies (Banana Apricot Muffin Cookies)

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 3 large cookies sheets with non-stick baking spray and set aside.
  • 2Cream softened butter and both type of sugars in mixer. Once mixed, add in 2 eggs and beat until creamy.
  • 3In a separate bowl, mash together your bananas and apricot preserves. Add to mixture to your mixer and beat until smooth.
  • 4In another bowl, combine dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir until mixed.
  • 5Turn mixer to medium-low speed and slowly add in dry ingredients until batter is fully mixed.
  • 6Fold in both types of chocolate chips. Be careful not to over-mix the batter. If using a tabletop mixer, the kneading attachment works well for this step.
  • 7Spoon batter onto greased cookies sheets, making sure to leave at least an inch around each spoonful. The cookies tend to spread out when baked. I fit about a dozen on each sheet.
  • 8Bake in 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until edges begin to brown and centers are fluffy. A fork or toothpick should come out clean. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  • 9Makes about 3 dozen. Store in air-tight container to keep soft.
