Chunky Monkey Cookies

I am pleased to announce that I am now a once a month contributor to Mandy's Recipe Box and today is my very first post for her.  If you aren't familiar with Mandy, you must check out her blog because it's full of GORGEOUS photos and mouthwatering recipes! Today, I'm sharing my Chunky Monkey Cookies with her.  They are easy and delicious, bursting with banana flavor, crunchy walnuts and dark chocolate morsels.

Chunky Monkey Cookies:  from a cake mix!

Chunky Monkey Cookies are easy because they start with a boxed cake mix.

I used to be a little skeptical when it came to cookies from cake mix.  I could not imagine how was it possible to get a good tasting cookie with the right texture from a cake mix?  But then I took the plunge a couple of years ago, and made my first cake mix cookie...White Chocolate Red Velvet Crinkles.  It turned out so well, I was sold.  This Chunky Monkey Cookie recipe did not disappoint!

One word of caution though, DO NOT over-bake these cookies!  They will look a little under done when you take them out of the oven, but will firm up on the baking sheet.  Keep them covered to keep the cookie soft.  They will come out of the oven a little crispy on the edges, but once stored in a covered container, will be nice and soft.

  4. Now these cookies look easy enough for even me to bake. Friday night is cookie night at our house. I may have to surprise The Hubby with these tasty treats! Thanks Renee and congrats on your contribution.

  5. Cake mix cookies are one of my faves! They always turn out so soft, and thick, and chewy! I am going to have to try your Chunky Monkey version soon. :)

  7. These cookies look so nice.. I think they are perfect with a glass of milk.

  8. Love this recipe and how easy it is Renee! I'm going to be on the lookout for a banana flavored cake mix. I don't buy mixes often so I didn't even know they had that flavor! Definitely a recipe to try (and not to mention I love bananas and walnuts and the chips are an added bonus!)

  9. The name reminds me of one of my favorite ice creams, so I will certainly have to make these with my bananas! Yummy!
