This is one of my favourite shortbread as often seen at Starbucks!. Thought to make on my own the same cake and fortunately Minu’s Kitchen done it very well too :) Here comes very easy and simple but delicious banana walnut shortbread with choco chips in it. I said it’s easy to make as it doesn’t need any electric mixer to make the dough and it can be done only by mixing the proper measurement of the ingredients and even it involves all the basic ingredients and doesn’t involves with any special requirements.

It taste great with coffee and you can store in refrigerator and have it. You could also exclude the Chocó chips if you don’t like in it or you don’t get it. If you are a banana lover I bet you would definitely like this shortbread. The only simple requirement to make this shortbread is just to use ripened bananas.
