Bake Another Little Piece of my Heath

I purposefully purchase too many bananas, just to allow a few to teeter on the edge of too-ripe-to-enjoy. These speckled brown beauties might be baked with immediately, or sent to a corner of the freezer – peels and everything.

Cryostasis enacted.

Thawing takes very little time and the globular banana mush lends itself well to baking something delicious!

1 ½ Cups AP Flour
½ Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder

¼ Cup Kerrygold Irish Cream Liqueur (Bailey’s also works)
1 Tsp. Vanilla
1 ½ Cups Chocolate Chips
1 Cup Heath Pieces
