Chef Plum’s Green Banana Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chef Plum
Since he was experimenting with a cookie recipe and wanted to judge the banana flour on its merits, he used no additional flours, and baked the cookies at a range of times to see which baking time produced the best cookie. Cookies that baked for longer than 12 minutes were too crisp and very thin. Cookies that baked for shorter than 10 minutes were thick and looked somewhat deflated. The time between was a sweet spot for flavor and texture.
