As usual, I am inspired by what is rotting on my counter. That sounds delicious, doesn’t it? But in the throes of summer, fruit seems to go from unripe to soft and mushy in a millisecond. I just bought my bunch of bananas two days ago, and by this afternoon they were looking brown and soft and needing to be loved immediately as in tout de suite! Sweet, soft and chewy banana chocolate chip cookies would be the ultimate way to honor my withering bananas.
