Banana is a fruit that the more ripe it gets, its benefits and sweetness increase proportionally. Therefore, any recipe that is made with it, its sugar product of its maturity, is considered in the proportions of the ingredients that are given in the recipe.
Let’s talk a bit about the recipe:
This is a very simple whole wheat cookie dough to prepare. Since it is a recipe that has no complications in terms of its preparation and has more than one advantage. On the one hand, there is its simplicity, since a dough that is not kneaded. And on the other hand, the ingredients to be used are few, frequently used and easy to find.
About the ingredients:
At Integralisimo, the whole wheat flour used is 100% whole grain, fine ground (I don’t use mixes unless I mention it). In general, depending on the brand, it can absorb more or less amount of liquid. So I recommend incorporating them gradually. Keep in mind that the lower the volume is, smaller final product you will get.
When making this recipe, ripe bananas are used to take advantage of that natural sweetness produced by maturity and thus use less sweetener. However, these cookies can still be made even though they are not. For this reason, a little more sugar or sweetener will be added according to preference in order to compensate for that lack.
This is a recipe in which you can use milk, non-dairy milk or just water. Similarly, you have the option of using a mixture of them, that is, half and half. Although, if you only use water, it will make this whole wheat dough a little more rustic. Otherwise, if you use animal or vegetable milk, it gives a certain softness to the dough.
The fat used in this opportunity is sunflower oil. But it can be replaced by margarine, butter, coconut oil, etc. As a result, depending on what fat is used, its texture can change. Therefore, always take into account the type of ingredient that is used to make a specific recipe.
About the dough:
In this opportunity, a dough is prepared that does not need elasticity, therefore, it is not kneaded. In this way, the gluten does not develop, and a chewy dough is not obtained. It is enough just to combine the ingredients, without the need to be completely homogeneous. When using butter or margarine, it is integrated cold and in small pieces, forming a grit with the hands or food processor.
The cookies are formed in a very simple way, since they are molded by hands. Still, you can use a cookie cutter for neater results. Chocolate chips can be added in two ways; When you prepare the dough, or add the chocolate chips superficially on the already molded cookie.
It is advisable that these whole wheat banana with chocolate chips cookies are cooked at a suitable temperature. Generally, a medium low temperature is used, around 180 degrees / 356 Fahrenheit for about 10-15 minutes. However, this depends on the size and thickness in which these cookies are made.
