Banana Bread Cookies

These soft banana bread cookies taste just like mini banana breads.

They may, perhaps, be better than banana bread – unless your banana bread is studded with chopped hazelnuts and drizzled with dulce de leche.

Cookies, Cookies & More Cookies!

These banana bread cookies are based off of the banana and hazelnut cookies from this cute cookbook.  I adapted the recipe by adding a little dulce de leche to the cookie dough and by drizzling the completed cookie with dulce de leche.  Doing so is not a necessary step, but you won’t regret it.

The book is a small lay-flat hardcover book with a really clean design.  The recipes are super easy to read, written very clearly, and many of the recipes have full-page color photos that are incredibly appealing – this is a book that you can proudly leave out on your coffee table.

You can purchase pre-made dulce de leche (the easiest option) or – almost as easy – you can make homemade dulce de leche with just a single ingredient.
