Soft banana cookies are filled with chocolate chips. These Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect use for overripe bananas.



  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Grease cookie sheets and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the four, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. Set aside.
  3. In another bowl, cream together the sugar and butter. Add the eggs. Beat in the vanilla and mashed bananas. Stir in the dry ingredients until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until starting to brown on the edges.
