And like all Teacher Summers, it is already filled with plans for get togethers, travel, and visits with family! I love all of those things, and I love to be able to offer something yummy and delicious that doesn’t take away from my quality time with my chosen ones. If you do too, then you should definitely know about this delicious…

Welcome back to my kitchen, ya’ll. Go ahead and grab a seat because today we’re trying something new. Now, we’ve all seen these cute little minute long cooking videos on social media. The ones with catchy names and morning news television music. I’ve always been a bit skeptical of these oh-so-well packaged recipes. Welp, I finally caved to the craving and gave one a shot. H/T to Tasty for the recipe for…

Greetings ChipWINners! Welcome to Chip Mom’s Kitchen, which this week has the honor of being The ChipWIN Blog’s 500th publication! If you keep up with the happenings in the ChipRealm, then you may have noticed that Chiptunes = WIN got together with the folks over at Groupees to put together a hella sweet chiptune Bundle of WIN (linked below!). Along with that bundle came a few fabulous prizes, not the least of which (in my not-so-humble opinion) was a batch of cookies provided by yours truely! Chiptune artist JKLOL was the lucky winner (song below!), and today you are going to join me in the making of said prize and learn all about…
Hey everybody! It’s Mama’s birthday! And like any birthday, it deserves baked goods. Today, as a present to myself, I tried out a brand-spanking-new recipe that I’d never attempted before but have been lusting after ever since I knew they existed. I’m talking about:
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup mashed banana (or 2 medium bananas)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 small bowls
1 large bowl
Gather ye all thost needith.
In the smaller bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, cloves, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
Using your electric mixer, blend the butter until it becomes smooth and creamy. I like to set my butter out so that it comes to room temperature while I get everything ready. It makes this step a lot quicker (takes about 30 seconds).
Add sugar and whip till its fluffy! Add eggs and vanilla and blend again until everything is smooth. It’s always a good idea to use your spatula to scrape the sides down after each step, to make sure you’ve got access to all the bits you need to blend!
In a small bowl, squish your banana into paste with a fork. You will add about a third of the dry goods, mix, then a third of the banana, mix, then dry and mix, then banana and mix, etc. etc. until its all been blended into your batter.
Use a small spoon to plop spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet (I used my silicone baking mat because I’m fancy), spacing them about 2 inches apart. I’m a big fan of the classic 3 by 4 grid.
Bake in the oven at 375 degrees for 10 minutes! Let sit on a rack until completely cool. You can frost these morsels if you wish, but you don’t have to! Unfrosted is perfect for someone who isn’t into things that are super sweet; frost to satisfy your every sugary craving!
And now, my dear chipkiddos, Chip Mama is gonna go have a birthday cider or two. Have a great night and keep on baking!
