I’ve made my fair share of banana bread and banana muffins. I love them both, but sometimes you are just in the mood for something different. I had some overripe bananas, and for some reason, I couldn’t get the thought of banana cookies out of my mind. Strange, because I don’t think I have ever had a banana cookie before!! I searched the internet and found many, many recipes, and surprisingly, for the most part, they were all similar. I decided to go with a recipe from allrecipes.com (surprise, right?? since that is where so many of my recipes come from!!) From the reviews, I figured that these cookies would be more cake-like than regular cookies – kind of like the texture of a pumpkin cookie. I went for it – they were super easy, and although they are not something I would crave all of the time, they were very good. I cut the chocolate chips from 2 cups to 1 1/2 cups because I wanted the banana to be the star, but if I were to make these again, I would maybe even cut them back a little further but use mini chocolate chips so they would be more evenly distributed.

    I usually make banana bread, but these sounds great, and they look it too. Will have to copy it!

    Like KJ I too use my bananas in breads or muffins – cookies are a great idea and these sound delish!!

  3. Janet says:

    This is a great idea to use up ripe bananas. I’ve never made banana cookies either, but they’ve been on my “to do list” for a while…

    Hi Deborah, thanks for stopping by my blog, it is always a pleasure to make new friends.

    I do not have a stand mixer either! 🙂 you will enjoy making this bread because It is not as dramatic as some other breads are 🙂 and it’s very easy to do by hand. I use a large bowl and a sturdy wooden spoon. I do hope that you try it.

    And please, come back and visit again. I’ve added you to my RSS feeds.

    They look puffy and soft and delicious. All I need is a cold glass of milk now.

  7. Judy says:

    Mm, sounds good. I can’t say that I’ve ever had banana cookies before either, but hey, why not? I love banana in anything else, and I certainly love cookies! And I also use allrecipes a lot too, it’s nice that they have reviews of recipes.

    I make banana bread all tihe time but I’ve been looking for something different. This is exactly the kind of recipe I’ve been looking for!

    Except…knowing me…I’d overdo the chocolate 🙂

    I just made cookies with a funfetti cake mix too. Great idea to add coconut to the strawberry mix.

  10. Erika says:

    Oh my god my roommate made these over the weekend and I am dying. I have eaten so many. They are amazing!!!

  11. Kelly says:

    I made these using the toll house peanut butter and milk chocolate morsels instead of just all chocolate chips. They were delicious! Nothing is better than banana, peanut butter, and chocolate mmm

  12. Nina says:

    I made these cookies tonight for my family….everyone love them but no one notices the banana…lol Well I don’t plan on saying anything till they’re all gone….i have a hard enough time getting them to eat more fruits.
    I used min chocolate chips about a cup.
