Banana bread is literally my vice. There is something about the dense but soft, somewhat sweet, moist (sorry if you hate that word which you probably do), goodness that is banana bread. I can’t keep my hands off the stuff. Plus, I don’t even have to feel bad about forgetting to eat my bananas because…
Yep. I did it. In the midst of trying to make the perfect chocolate chip cookies I said “screw it” and threw everything in a pan and baked it instead. Well, the good news is they turned out to be a delicious pan of chocolate chunk cookie bars so my efforts had not gone to waste….
My apologies in advance if you started the new year thinking you were going to detox from sweets, because this is a recipe that you have gotta try. I mentally prepared for my own nutrition and health challenge by making these LAST weekend because my detox starts next week (no, seriously it does). Actually, who am I kidding? I’m not sorry – these are delicious!
I have been dreaming about these cookies all week. While I packed a lot of cookies up in holiday tins, I left a veeeeeery small amount for myself to munch on. I would say I did a pretty good job with saving my waistline, until I took them out of the container to shoot photos and starting eating them for breakfast, oops. On that note, you can totally eat cookies for breakfast during the holidays. I would have to say that although I typically do not really like chocolate all that much, these cookies were definitely my favorite from the Christmas cookie extravaganza that happened last weekend. The chocolate chunks bring an extra texture and even more chocolate to the table when you sink your teeth into these bad boys.
Chocolate + chocolate chunks + layer of powdered sugar = undeniable deliciousness.
