Banana, coconut and raisin cookies

Mmm doesn't this look delicious? scroll down for the baked result which, I can assure you, is delicious. (I thought it was best to stick with the step-by-step photo theme despite the photos not being too appetising)

It has now become a 'thing' of mine to add banana to the cookies I make. The reason being is it tastes so good!! (and they come out with a lovely soft texture). The first batch I did the other week contained banana, nuts and dried fruits. However, for these ones I opted for a more tropical touch with added flavour from coconut. Admittedly, I still prefer the first ones but banana and coconut go together as satisfyingly as Ant and Dec and I just had to share it with you all!

You will need...
  • 70g butter
  • 50g sugar (I used brown)
  • dessicated coconut (I didn't measure the amount but I'd say roughly 100g)
  • 1 egg
  • 80g flour (I used wholemeal)
  • 1 banana
  • raisins (again I didn't measure the amount)
What to do...
  • Preheat your oven to 180
  • cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until smooth.
  • Mash up the banana (I did this in a mixer) and then pour into the mixture, before beating in the egg
  • Add the flour then the coconut and raisins
  • Form cookie shapes on a baking tray and then place in the oven for about 15 minutes (As the mixture is quite gooey, I formed the shapes using a spoon not my fingers)
  • Take out, leave to cool and then save for lunchtime with a cup of tea or, if you can't resist, eat straight away ;-)
