Chunky Monkey Bites: Banana Chocolate Cookies!

Domino's Sugar is a great go-to for easy and delicious recipes. For me, summer is all about easy cookies on the go. I've adapted this recipe a bit: added dark chocolate chunks and banana pieces.

Chunky Monkey Bites

Nonstick vegetable cooking spray
1  (14 oz.) package banana nut muffin mix
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup Domino® Granulated Sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup banana baby food
3/4 cup dark chocolate chunks
2/3 cup walnut pieces
1/2 cup banana chunks (firm)

Preheat oven to 450°F.
Spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray, set aside. In a large bowl, combine muffin mix, oil, sugar, eggs and baby food, stirring with wooden spoon until well mixed. Fold in chocolate chunks, walnuts, and banana chunks.
Drop heaping tablespoons of the dough on baking sheets, spacing 2" apart. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Makes 24 bites.

How easy would this be to make into an ice cream? Do any readers have some suggestions?

Great Question. I don't make a lot of ice cream, so I wouldn't know. I also think you can substitute mashed bananas for baby food bananas in this recipe.
