  1. Preheat an oven to 180°C (160°C fan forced). Line two large oven trays with baking paper.
  2. Melt chocolate and butter over a medium saucepan with simmering water in a heatproof bowl until just melted. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  3. Combine sugar and eggs in the bowl of an electric mixture and whisk on high for 2 minutes or until light and fluffy. Gradually add chocolate mixture and beat through on low speed. Add flour and baking powder and beat through. Fold extra chocolate through.
  4. Spoon tablespoon size amounts onto the prepared trays, roll into balls and flatten. Combine the banana and lemon juice in a small bowl and toss to coat. Gently press a few pieces of banana onto each cookie.
  5. Bake cookies for 10 minutes. Leave to cool on tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

TIP – Cookies are best made and baked just before serving.
