BANANA CHIP COOKIES


After going through a few of  the  cookbooks, randomly selected this unique cookies to bake. It uses tapioca flour, mashed banana and banana chips, on top of that it does not use any leaving agent.

This egg free dough was so easy to handle, adding banana made them really moist and pleasant to munch with.  Also added a tablespoon of instant coffee in place of banana essence.  They are absolutely delicious with subtle hint of banana in them. They cooked beautifully in the oven despite using very low temperature @ 120 C..
