Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

Sorry. I don't have a picture of the actual cookies.... We ate them all. They were that good. Especially right out of the oven when the chocolate chips are still melted inside the cookie and they get all over your chin when you bite into them!


2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour (I used whole wheat)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup of white sugar (I used about 1/2 cup brown and 1/4 cup white)
2/3 cup butter, softened
2 eggs ( I only used 1 egg and a tablespoon of applesauce)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mashed bananas (about 2 ripe bananas)
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Sift dry ingredients together through baking soda and set aside.
  3. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy then add eggs and vanilla.
  4. Mix in mashed bananas.
  5. Add mix to dry ingredients and stir until just combined.
  6. Add chocolate chips and nuts if using.
  7. Drop by the tablespoon onto cookie sheet. I use my Pampered Chef scoop.
Bake for 10-12 minutes
Makes approx. 2 dozen cookies
