cookies for monkeys (and for me)

Once again, found myself with bananas past their prime.  Usually I make banana bread but it was time for something sweeter.  These cookies are extra fluffy and cake-like.  What do you make with your over ripe bananas?

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks butter, softened

1 cup light brown sugar

3/4 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 bananas, peeled and mashed

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 whole wheat flour

1 1/2 all purpose flour

1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease cookie sheet and set aside.  In a large bowl, whisk butter, sugar and vanilla.  Add eggs, then bananas.  Add flour, baking soda and salt.  Add chocolate chips.  Drop tablespoon sized portions of dough onto greased cookie sheet, each about an inch or more apart.  Bake 10-12 minutes. Edges will be golden brown.
