I love banana bread so much. So much that I am always looking for an excuse to bake a loaf, or incorporate the sweet flavors of banana bread into another sweet treat. This Banana Bread Cookies recipe fits the bill and then some! When I received confirmation that I was able to participate in this year’s The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, I knew that I would be baking up a batch of these moist, chocolaty banana bread cookies for my matches!

I love making cookies, they’re actually my very favorite thing to bake! While I do enjoy eating cake and pie, my own decorating skills leave something to be desired, and my cakes always end up looking like they were dropped…and pies? Well, as much as I love them, I’ve never been able to master the art of the perfect pie crust, so I usually end up scooping that delicious pie pilling out of the shell and eating it straight up.

Yum.

I love participating in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap each year because it’s all about my favorite baked good: COOKIES!

This is my third year participating and I think I get more excited as the years go by. I love baking the cookies, writing out the recipe by hand on cute little recipe cards, packaging the cookies and shipping them out. I spend an entire morning getting everything ready and by the time the boxes are shipped…there aren’t very many cookies left for me to munch on!

I need to start making two batches…

Serves: 4 doz
Ingredients
  • 3 large, ripe bananas
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, then add your eggs, vanilla and bananas.
  3. On low speed, mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt, until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  4. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto your lined cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Batter will be very wet - don't worry if you aren't able to form the dough into balls.
  5. Bake for 12 minutes, until the edges begin to turn a light golden brown.

NOTE: The batter will look very wet and mushy when you plop it down on the baking sheet. It’s okay, don’t worry! It’s supposed to look like that.

    Oh yum! These cookies look so delicious! I need to make these with bananas. I have never made Chocolate chip cookies with bananas, but I bet they taste so good!

  2. says

    Why is there no chocolate in my house? I’m drooling over these and wishing I could eat them through the screen! Off to the store I go to get the supplies!

  3. says

    Jenn, delicious looking cookies! Yum! My husband is a banana bread lover, and seriously he just asked me to make some for him. I’m definitly going to surprise him with these goodies! Happy New Year!

  4. says

    I made these yesterday, and they turned out surprisingly good! I was sure I did something wrong when the batter was really wet and just plopped it onto the baking sheets. But oh my gosh, they were so moist and airy! My kids have been devouring them, and I had a few as a midnight snack last night. :) Great recipe! It’s been added to my recipe book. Thank you!

    • says

      Oh I am so glad that you liked them! I know that the batter can be scary – but they do turn out really yummy and moist. :) YAY! Thanks for letting me know that you liked them!

  5. Jennifer says

    Made this yesterday! Yum. I knew from comments that the batter would me moist and right out of the oven everything looked yummy. but day two, the cookies seem to be a little sticky? did I do something wrong? They are still delicious though.

    • says

      Oh no! Because I made these for my cookie swap, we packaged up and sent out most of the cookies and only had a little leftover. I didn’t find them to be sticky…I wonder what would cause that? I am sorry I don’t know. Maybe it’s the starch from the bananas?

  6. says

    These look so good! I love the taste of banana and chocolate. Thank you so much for linking your recipe up to Dare to Share, you are a Dare to Share Feature of the Day.

  7. Jan says

    I made these and they were delicious. The family loved them. Someone else mentioned they were sticky and I had that problem. I couldn’t stack them but had to layer with wax paper. What did I do wrong? Won’t stop me from making them again. They were awesome!!

  8. shelly peterson says

    Oh do these look yummy! I love banana bread so I know I would love these plus they has chocolate chips! :)

  9. Lindsay says

    I am excited to make these tonight! I have a brick of butter in the fridge that is 454 grams.. How many grams is a stick, 1/4 that?

  10. Treasure says

    Made these tonigh and they were delish. They remind me of bear paws, without the processed flavour. I think next time I’ll had some cinnamon though. I just love cinnamon in my banana bread.

  11. Amanda says

    Would I be able to make a substitution for the white sugar? I have coconut sugar (similar to brown sugar) honey and maple syrup. Thanks!

    • says

      I have experimented with using honey but I can never get the conversion right – try searching online for the conversion for each ingredient and see! :) Good luck!

  12. Patty says

    If this is such a good recipe and getting rave comments, why are the number of stars so mediocre on the ratings?

  13. Carla says

    These look great. But my pet peeve in recipes is unrealistic prep times. So I’m going to find my ingredients, measure them, mix the ingredients in stages, and then put them on a cookie pan — all in five minutes. Uh huh. If this is true, I would love to see a video where you accomplish all of that in 360 seconds. I’d make a bet that don’t make 4 dozen cookies either ….

  14. Lori says

    These were awesome. Since I have grandsons here helping me, we topped them each with a Marischino cherry. Possibly our new favorite!! Yum!!

  15. Tricia Smith says

    These cookies are amazing. I have made them a lot, my family loves them. I have tried a few different things in them as well. Walnuts with the original ingredients,makes it awsome. I have also used butterschotch chips instead of chocolate. Will make these over and over again! Thank you for this awsome idea

  16. Liz says

    Great flavor, mine turned out spongy but soft and formed. Maybe that’s the banana element? I used coconut sugar and my butter was mostly melted.
