1 cup softened butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup apple sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (or more) semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup nuts or raisins or Skor bits (optional).
Cream together butter and sugars. Beat in banana, apple sauce and vanilla.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Then gradually blend in to creamed mixture.
Stir in chocolate chips along with anything else your heart desires. My personal fave is the Skor bits.
Drop dough by heaping tablespoons on to an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes (depending on your oven) at 375F.
