It's such a tasty crunchy treat that people would argue with you that it can't possibly contain garri (I would recommend IJEBU garri, because of its sourness)... Funny, I made this cookies by chance last year, using excess ingredients from recipe. Since then, it's been on my mind to remake it.. So here it is!!!
Adding banana also means using less sugar and butter as it helps with consistency and taste, so we are looking at a healthier treat than most sweet baked goods.
1/3 cup garri
1/2 lemon extract or any of your choice
1/2 plain flour
1/2 baking powder
1/3 cup sugar
Step 1. (start by pre heating your oven to 180 degree or gas mark 4-5) Combine the milk, butter and sugar in a pot.. DO NOT BOIL, continue to stir to dissolve the sugar
Step 2. Now combine the wet (make sure it's not hot, use at room temperature) and dried ingredients together (don't mash the bananas, just dice).. Mix gently, so the bananas don't over break).
Step 3. Scoop a spoon at a time unto a greased proof baking tray.. And bake till golden brown (if you need them snapping, only add small quantity of cookie mix on the tray.. Then spread it. Out)
All ready, it was a sure treat with me and the kids..
