It is of course no harm to use fresh fruits as well, but for that, I will definitely stick to Bananas. In addition, other fruit varieties can get too wet or sticky, making a really odd cookie! Make sure not to use overripe bananas here as they disintegrate too easily!
A word of warning for the casual homebaker lies here. If you can’t finish these cookies within a couple of days, consider making these without adding the fruits.
Since fruits absorb scents easily, they will become tasteless real quick! Furthermore, some absorb the butter from the cookie, making it pointless to add fruits in the first place.
Furthermore, this recipe makes for an amazing chocolate chip cookie too. As such, you can certainly rest assured if you only add fruits to a few!
Overall, I just find these Chunky Monkey cookies a nice way to spice up the everyday baking in my kitchen! You can most definitely to the same modification to your favourite cookie recipes!
Without further ado, the recipe!
