While at Sam's last week, or the week before, we bought some bananas. The people that eat bananas in this house consist of 1.5 people. ME and Mads....sometimes. Hubby can't stand them and MG thinks they are slimy and gross. Mads counts for half a person because she takes two bites and decides she is done.
Despite my better judgment I went ahead and got a little bushel of bananas because I was PROMISED they would be eaten. Now, here we are a week or two later and the bananas are brown. Ugh. What is a girl to do? I took to Pinterest, of course, and looked up a few recipes.
I started with Banana Bread. I think it is the very first thing most people think of when dealing with overripe bananas. Let me tell you, there are TONS of Banana Bread Pins on Pinterest. I settled on this recipe from Edible Garden.
While looking over Banana Bread recipes I discovered Banana COOKIES! Say WHAT?!?! I KNOW! Did you know there was such a thing as banana cookies? Well, I didn't! My mouth is still drooling from the possibilities!
I first found these Banana Maple Cookies from This & That. Call me CRAZY but I think a few pieces of crumbled bacon sprinkled on top would be AMAZING! Bananas, Maple, Chocolate AND BACON?! Oh man oh man!

Then! I saw THESE precious, soft, puffed Banana Cookies from Funky Polkadot Giraffe. Aren't they precious!?! They look sooooo soft and good!

Finally, I came across these AH-MAZING looking Banana Cookies from Family Ever After. They are such precious little puffs. The icing looks DIVINE as well.

I plan to make at least one of these recipes over the next few days. I am so excited to share what I decide on and how I liked them. I am also thinking if the Banana is in the form of a cookie, MG might just eat it! We shall see.
