Banana Split Cookies Recipe

I remember when I was little my brother loved banana splits. Since he had Cystic Fibrosis he always had to make sure he consumed a lot of calories and banana splits had to be one of his favorite things! Here’s a delicious variation on a classic dessert… banana split cookies. Enjoy!

Prep time: 10 minutes | Bake Time:  10-13 minutes

    I have weird grandkids – they don’t like the kind of cherries in this recipe!! Sprinkles, Chocolate, nuts, yes!
    My favorite cookies since childhood are chocolate chip & Snickerdoodles. But I do love bananas 🙂


    Well, they’re certainly colourful! I’ve never made cookies using mixes before.
