Bananas and Cardamon

Had three overripe bananas, a brand new jar of cardamon, and a few chocolate chips. Good thing i had an egg hanging out in the fridge - didn't even need a run to the grocery store downstairs. Biscotti smells great - can even smell it through my stuffed nose.  Can't wait until this cold is gone and i can smell, taste and hear like a healthy person!

note: these came out much softer than normal biscotti due to the banana content even with increased baking times. The banana flavor comes through - next time i think i'll stick to just cardamon and get the cookie to harden up.
