Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

When it comes to food, fresh bananas and chocolate are two of my favorite things and if you combine them together??? It’s even better! I love chocolate & banana flavored cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pies, ice cream, bread and all kinds of other things. I just love blending those two flavors together!

Last month my mother and I whipped up a batch of homemade banana chocolate chip cookies and they were absolutely delicious! Since you’re adding mashed up bananas to the cookie batter, it really adds a nice flavor & gives you a super-moist cookie. I love snacking on them and if I’m in a hurry, I eat them for a quick breakfast too! YUMMY GOOD! Here’s the recipe!

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 tsp. baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar using an electric hand mixer. Beat in the large egg until combined. In another large mixing bowl mashed up the bananas with the baking soda. Let this mixture sit for 3-4 minutes and then beat the banana mixture into the first mixing bowl. Mix together the all-purpose flour and salt until combined. Beat this mixture into the first batter bowl and then fold in the semi-sweet chocolate chips by hand.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray your baking sheet with some non-stick baking spray, only ONE TIME, don’t spray it again in between your batches, once is enough. Drop the cookie dough onto the baking sheet using a tablespoon and leaving 2″ of space between each cookie. Bake in a preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until done. Remove and let them cool on a wire rack and then store cookies in an airtight container.

Tip: I enjoy snacking on warm cookies, so I will place 3-4 cookies on a paper towel and heat them up for 10 to 12 seconds in my microwave oven. Delicious!

    I mix up a lot of cookie dough around here & I never tried adding banana. We do all love bananas, though, so I think we might like these.

    The Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe is easy to make and looks delicious. I love bananas with chocolate and this is going to be fun cookies to make with my daughter!

  7. Sometimes I can find a huge bunch of very ripe bananas at one of the stores I shop, for only a buck. Banana bread always come to mind but these cookies would be a nice change of pace. I’ve seen some recipes say you can decrease the fat some when using the banana. I go easy on the sugar too but I admit that chocolate chips sound like a delicious addition. Maybe even add a handful of walnuts too.

    See, the internet is good for learning new things. I never would have thought to make cookies with bananas but I can see it would be good.

  9. I always forgot to eat my bananas. They always turn brown and mushy. I used them to make smoothies. Now, I can make cookies.

    You know I had never ever thought of this combo before. I love bananas, and this would be terrific. Hubby is the chocolate lover. This is like the best of both worlds! I might give this a go.
