Soft-Baked Bacon & Banana Cookies recipe

Mmm! I actually made these and they are like tiny loaves of banana but better. Give it a try!

Bacon & Banana Cookies
[Recipe from Red Shallot Kitchen]

2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 bananas, mashed (about 1 1/3 cups)
1/2 pound bacon, cooked crisp, chopped

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and salt.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together butter and 1 cup of sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at the time, until they are fully incorporated. Beat in the vanilla. Add the butter mixture to the flour mixture, then stir in the mashed bananas, beating well after each addition. Fold in the bacon.
  4. Stir together the remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the remaining cinnamon.
  5. Drop the dough by the heaping tablespoons onto the prepared baking sheet 1 inch apart. Sprinkle generously with the cinnamon-sugar and bake for 10-12 minutes, until slightly brown. Allow the cookies to cool completely before storing in an airtight container. Yield about 30 cookies.
