Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Try these Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies to put a little different spin on your favorite recipe. They're quick and easy to make and come out soft and moist. Subbing bananas for half the butter I usually use makes them healthier as well. If one of your favorite combos is bananas and chocolate you've got to taste these!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 24 Cookies


  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • cups of Flour
  • 3/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1.5  tsp vanilla extract
  • .5 tsp of almond extract
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick of butter
  • 1 bag of semi-sweet chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 bag of  milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

  2. Mix the flour, salt and baking soda together. 

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the bananas, white sugar, brown sugar, butter, vanilla extract and almond extract. Add the eggs and mix very thoroughly until well blended.

  4. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do NOT over mix!

  5. Finally, add the chocolate chunks and chips.  I like to use this combination of semi-sweet chocolate chunks and milk chocolate chips. But you can improvise this however you want. Again, mix them in until just incorporated into the batter.

  6. Don't immediately bake the cookies.  I put the cookie batter into the the refrigerator for 10 minutes. You can also preheat oven during this time if you haven't already!  One the the cookie dough is chilled, bake for 10-11 minutes.  Immediately take off of the cookie sheet and put onto a cooling rack.  Enjoy!
