Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

3 lg. very ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 c. chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
2 eggs
1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 c. flour
1 1/2 tbsp. baking powder
1/2 C. - 2 C. Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350.
Combine bananas and nuts; set aside. Cream eggs, butter and sugar, add to the banana mix. Add flour and baking soda to egg mix, blending well. Your dough may be a lighter color than mine, I used 2C. white flour and 1C. whole wheat flour.

Drop onto greased cookie sheet. I use a mellon baller, it makes the cookies all the same size so that they bake nice and even. Place the chocolate chips on top of the cookies. By putting them on top instead of inside the dough, they look prettier, (Suzi mentioned that in her chocolate chip recipe further down the page) and you have control over how much chocolate there is per cookie. Bake for 10-13 minutes until done at 350 degrees.

Cool on wire racks and enjoy!
