Chips Ahoy

Makes 24 cookies

  • 1/2 cup white flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 Tbs melted butter
  • 2 Tbs well-mashed banana
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 Tbs egg white (or white from 1 egg)
  • 1/2 cup baking chips of choice
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and coat your cookie sheet lightly with a non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, blend the flours with the baking soda, and set aside.
  3. Mix the mashed banana, vanilla, and egg white together in a small bowl.  Pour the  mixture over the sugars and melted butter, in a large bowl.  Beat it with a whisk till it is light and smooth.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and beat well till smooth and creamy.
  5. Fold in the chips and mix till they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.
  6. Drop the batter by the spoonful onto the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Take the cookie sheet from the oven and leave the cookies resting on it for a couple of minutes before removing them to a cooling rack.  They will be very soft when they first come out of the oven and will break if you try to move them too soon.
