Mini Chip Malted Banana Cookies

These cookies are full of malted flavor and coated in banana sugar that melts into the cookie resulting in crispy cookies with a bit of chew in the bite.


Ingredients

1/2 cup (about 1oz) Banana Chips

1/4 cup Granulated Sugar or Powdered Sugar

1/2 cup Butter, room temperature

1/2 cup Granulated Sugar

1/2 cup Light Brown Sugar

1 Egg

1/2 teaspoon Vanilla

1/4 cup Malted Milk Powder

1 1/4 cups Flour

1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/4 teaspoon Kosher Sea Salt

1 10oz bag Mini Chocolate Chips, or other chips of your choice

1 5oz Box Malted Milk Balls



Prepare

  • Preheat the oven to 350.

  • In a blender or food processor, combine banana chips and 1/4 cup of sugar. Pulse mixture until it is a fine mixture resembling cornmeal. Place into a bowl and set aside.

  • In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

  • In a stand mixer (or by hand) beat butter until creamy. Add sugars to butter and beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes, scraping bowl sides as necessary to ensure all is well mixed.

  • Beat in egg and vanilla until fluffy. About 2-3 minutes.

  • Beat in malted milk powder.

  • Quickly mix in the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Do not over beat.

  • In a blender, or food processor, pulse malted milk balls until broken up, but not a fine mixture.

  • By hand, mix into the dough the broken malted milk balls and the mini chocolate chips.

  • Form dough into 48 balls.

  • Roll dough balls in banana sugar mixture.

  • Place dough balls, well spaced, on a cookie sheet (non-stick, greased or parchment lined) and press dough balls down into approximately 1/3" depth disks.

  • Bake until golden. About 12-14 minutes.
