  • 1/2 tsp Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 cups Light Brown Sugar, packed

Preheat oven to 300° F.

In a medium bowl, combine four, soda and salt. Mix well and set aside.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, blend sugars at medium speed. Add butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add egg, liqueur and banana, and beat at medium speed until smooth. Add flour mixture, 1 cup of the chocolate chips and walnuts, and blend at low speed until just combined.
