It may take a little while, and quite a bit of whisk-clearing, in order to get it all combined. Once it becomes a crumbly-looking lumpy mess, add in the two eggs and banana. Then continue to mix it all up until its a creamy liquid.  I forgot to get a picture of the banana because it was sort of a last-minute decision, and I do not possess the ability to crack eggs with one hand and snap photos with the other. Just know that the wet ingredient mix will not look like it can handle the dry ones, until you add the two eggs and banana.

This is the point when the two eggs and banana were added in.

Now its time to start adding in the dry ingredients. Be patient, add the dry mixture in stages, about a cup at a time. And mix it well, scraping the sides of the bowl to make sure its all properly combined.

Once the dry and wet ingredients are all mixed together, toss in a little more than half a package each of semi-sweet and white chocolate morsels. The actual recipe below says one cup of each, but I made these for my husband who REALLY loves chocolate chips so I used a bit more. Continue mixing.

Scoop out small balls of the dough with your fingers working them into somewhat round balls and lay them onto a baking sheet. Be sure to prevent sticking by either greasing your baking sheet or using aluminum foil as I did.

They go into the over for about 11 minutes at 375 degrees.
