Eggless Banana chocolate chip cookies

For this month's PPCS I have come with Banana chocolate chip cookies. With both my in-laws being diabetic at home and with sweet tooth.. I have almost stopped baking sweets at home.. But as this is Christmas season and as the high command at our house ordered "Amma make cookies" I baked these... I love the smell of banana while baking :)

You need:
All purpose flour (Maida) - 1 1/4 cups twice sifted
Butter (at room temp) - 1/2 cup
Brown Sugar - 1/3 cup
Granulated Sugar - 1/3 cup
Banana puree - 1/4 cup
Baking soda - 3/4 tsp
Salt - 1/8 tsp
Vanilla extract - 2 tsp
Chocolate chips cookies - 1/2 cup

Cream together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla till smooth and creamy (about 3 mins)
Add in the banana puree and beat for 1 min
Add in the flour, baking soda and salt slowly little by little on minimum speed
Beat till forms a firm dough
remove and wrap in aluminium foil and refrigerate (NOT IN FREEZER) for 2 - 3 hrs
Preheat the oven to 190C
Grease the tray
Drop small lemon sized balls of the batter into the greased tray - 2 inch apart
Any shape is fine as the cookie dough will flatten itself due to heat
Bake the cookies for 15 - 18 mins or till the edges start turning golden brown
Remove from oven and let it sit for 5 mins
remove onto the wired tray and cool further
Store in air tight container.
You should be able to get ~30 cookies
