I have come across a cookie recipe I did back in 2013, Tropical Mix Cookies. I noticed a major flaw in the recipe. I forgot to add sugar in the recipe. Epic Fail.
In order to redeem this problem, I decided to redo this recipe. I did not intend to make it a chocolate cookie, however I had come across a chocolate coconut macadamia nut cookie recipe in a cookie book I own and decided to mess with this recipe.
The tropical trail mix I had bought in my local grocery store had large banana chips in it. So I wanted to make the banana chips smaller so I ran it through my food processor just long enough to break down the banana chips. I also decided to to toast my coconut, but you don't have too.
I loved how cookie turned out, moist and chewy with chocolate banana and the flavors from the trail mix and coconut.
To make this you will need:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
1/2 cup soft butter
1 1/2 cup sugar ( I used coconut sugar )
1/2 cup mashed banana - I used 1 banana
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
2/3 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup tropical trail mix, break up the larger banana chips if needed
3/4 cup shredded coconut
Combine the butter, sugar, and eggs until light and fluffy. Add banana and vanilla. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture. Stir in the trail mix and coconut. Drop by teaspoonful onto baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes.
Of course, you could use any trail mix, or use nuts and/or chocolate chips.

Is it still pumpkin season? Then lets have some pumpkin bread. I followed a recipe from a You Tube video and made a tasty and moist pumpkin bread.

I am not sure if I mentioned this in the past, but my motto for meet loaf has always been "Never made the same way twice". Unfortunately this has led to bad meat loaf. This latest meat loaf creation came about by following a recipe from my grandmother's vintage Betty Crocker cookbook. I have to say it turned out rather tasty and I thought I would share it with all of you. It is a solid meatloaf recipe.

One of things I am excited about in the coming week is that my son and I did some meal planning. My son is not working now (by choice) so he is going to cook some meals in the coming days. We are going to have curry, cheese ravioli, Mexican salad, sandwiches with fried pickles in the air fryer, and whatever my husband is going to cook on his day off.
So keep an eye out next week for the results of actually planning our meals.
