Recipe: Fudge Monkey Cookies

fudge monkey cookies

I really like to create my own recipes, for a number of reasons. But high on the list of reasons is that then I get to name them anything I want! Isn’t that fun? These cookies are both delicious and my new fave, simply because they are named Fudge Monkey Cookies. They are a cross between banana bread and brownies. Seriously, who doesn’t want to eat a Fudge Monkey Cookie? I do!

Blog posts have been few and far between these last couple of weeks. Why? Because I’m madly working on the cookbook! Stay tuned!

Fudge Monkey Cookies

makes approx 2 dozen

1/2 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup raw sugar(or brown sugar)

2 bananas

1 tsp vanilla

1 egg

1 1/2 cups of spelt flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

3 tbs cocoa

1/2 cup oats

handful of chopped pecans

handful of dark chocolate chips

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add bananas, vanilla and egg and beat until blended, scraping down the sides of the bowl. In a small bowl mix together all the dry ingredients. Add to wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir in pecans and chocolate chips. Drop tbs full onto parchment and bake for 10 minutes. Enjoy!

    I just checked your site a bit ago to see if you had any new cookie recepies – too fun! I will try these out this week. Can I use whole wheat flour instead of spelt?

    definitely you can use whole wheat, or even regular unbleached flour! Whole wheat seems to make my baked goods a bit tough, but definitely doable!
