White Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

White Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies
1 1/4 C all-purpose flour
1 1/4 C whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 C white sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
1 Tbs cinnamon
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 mashed bananas
2 C white chocolate chips
3/4 C toffee bits

Beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla together. Add in the bananas.
Mix in all the dry ingredients, adding the chocolate chips and toffee bits once it's all mixed together.
Drop by spoonfuls onto a lightly greased cooking sheet.

Baked at 400 C, 10 min.

Lately I've been using cream of tartar instead of baking powder. Baking powder is just a mix of baking soda and cream of tartar, anyhow, and I figure I can cut out the middle man. Also, baking powder frequently has anti-caking agents, and I just figure I don't need those in my cakes and cookies, or my body. My baking has been a little moister since then. It could be that I am just having a string of good luck, but I am enjoying the result anyhow. I might never go back to baking powder.

To replace cream of tartar for baking powder: add 1 part cream of tartar and 2 parts baking soda. (So you'll add more soda to the recipe if it already has some in it) It's not an exact science, so it won't matter if you're a little over or under on the ratios.
