Expert Tips

  • Switch up your nuts for a different crunch. Chopped pecans can also be used in this recipe instead of the walnuts.
  • Substitute dried cranberries instead of raisins for a colorful and tasty twist on these delicious cookies!
  • Don’t just wait for your bananas to get ripe before you are ready to bake with bananas - keep a few bananas frozen in the freezer. To freeze bananas - take a banana that is ripe to slightly over-ripe and peel it before placing it in a labelled freezer-safe bag. To use, let the banana thaw for a few minutes on the counter before mixing into your baking recipe.
