Just when I thought August was swift, September apparently was swifter! It’s like my September had just 15 days b’cuz it was unbelievably fast. Had a couple of birthday celebrations in the family; I became a year older, my little girl cut her first birthday cake and one of the Wuyika girls was one year older.

Today, I am welcoming the new month of October  with some sweetness; banana cookies! So how did I come about the idea of making these cookies? I had some two miserable bananas that were gradually moving towards the grave. They were over ripe and no one seemed to love them anymore, so I came to their rescue and decided to give them more vitality via cookies

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 250 grams butter
  • 100 grams sugar or 1/2 a cup
