Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

What do you do when you have a handful of ripe bananas? Don’t let it go to waste! Use them for pancakes, cookies or for your oat meals. I decided to use my ripe bananas for cookies and they came out delicious. What made the taste even better was a dash of sea salt. The dash of sea salt enhanced the dark chocolate, so overall made the cookie tasted a lot better with it being added to.
