Chunky Monkey Cookies

Cookies are a staple in almost every home, and there's nothing better than the smell of fresh baked cookies wafting in the air. Actually, the only thing that's better is the taste of them.

This recipe for chunky monkey cookies combines the wonderful flavors of chocolate and banana to make an incredibly chewy and delicious treat that will be sure to be a hit in your home. The recipe calls for some banana pudding mix that gives it the distinct flavor, and, in addition, uses coconut oil to make it a healthier version compared to the traditional use of butter. Of course, the coconut oil also lends a unique flavor that brings this cookie to the next level. All the comments and reviews on the site demonstrate just how much of a hit this recipe is for almost everyone. You can play around with the ingredients too if you don't have something on hand, or just want to switch things up to suit your tastes.

The basic recipe can be transformed into plenty of different variations, like using white chocolate chips instead, add some maple syrup to replace some of the granulated sugar, or even honey instead. The original recipe was featured on Sally's Baking Addiction but both of them seem to be a hit. They only take 12 minutes to bake and can be put in the freezer to save leftovers for another day if you decide to make a few batches. Go ahead and checkout the recipe, the pictures alone will likely convince you to try and make these. You likely already have the ingredients on hand if you're a baker, and the results are a thick, chewy, and delicious chocolate banana flavored cookie that you will probably make again and again.
