It is definitely that time of year again, where the bakers go crazy! If I don’t gain 20 lbs. between Thanksgiving and Christmas it will be a miracle. Thanksgiving started with a Chocolate Pecan Pie, then it was pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chip banana bread, which are shown below.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies – I got this recipe from Joy The Baker and it can be found here: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
To the sugar, add the wet ingredients (eggs, oil, pumpkin & vanilla).
Combine the dry ingredients to the wet.
Add in the chocolate chips!
Bake in oven and out comes cake-like pumpkin cookies. I enjoyed them, as well as my German class but Christian didn’t like them. He prefers savory pumpkin dishes compared to sweet! I guess everyone has their own opinion.
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread – Now this is a recipe that Christian asked me to make. As I wanted to make every type of pumpkin dessert known to man, he requested that I take a break from the pumpkin and make him his favorite, banana bread with chocolate chips. I choose a recipe from the Food Network (of course): Banana Bread and added chocolate chips to it and doubled the recipe.
Mash bananas in a separate bowl and add milk and cinnamon.
Combine dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda & baking powder).
Combine sugar, eggs & butter and mix.
Add in the banana mixture & then the flour mixture.
Add the chocolate chips. Pour mixture into greased baking pans.
And here’s a treat Christian enjoys!
