Martha Stewart’s Banana-Walnut Chocolate-Chunk Cookies

These cookies are packed with flavor.

Ali, my neighbor and friend, is a true baker.  She is always trying different recipes and bringing them over for me to try.  Friday evening, she brought over these wonderful cookies.  These cookies were moist, chewy and packed with flavor. Ali made these cookies and took all of the pictures. She did a GREAT job!

Ali Siverly, best neighbor ever!

Ali has two cookbooks that she loves:  Martha Stewart’s Cookies and Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes. I can honestly say that these cookbooks have yielded some exceptional desserts!

From start to finish, this recipe will take you about 30 minutes.

Ready to drop on parchment.

1 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Whisk together both flours, salt, and baking soda and place to the side.
