Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I like to make these banana cookies but I often forget about them, when those bananas get really ripe, I usually either make a banana bread or muffins.  Mom used to make these,they weren't a regular but  I discovered them again a few years ago in a book called " Great Canadian Cookies".  They're filling up the Pyrex Cookie Jar just fine, it's a really nice cookie!

I'm linking this recipe up with Junkin Joe ,  Weekend Potluck at the Country Cook and for the first time, Melt in Your Mouth Monday

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking soda

2/3 c. margarine

1 c. white sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 c. mashed, ripe bananas

1 c. chocolate chips, I add a little more

Preheat oven to 400.

Combine flour, b. powder, salt and b. soda

In a large bowl, cream together margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs, one at a time, then vanilla and banana.  Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture in thirds.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop teaspoons of dough 2 inches apart on a greased cookie sheet, I always just use parchment paper for cookies.

Bake for approximately 10 minutes or until golden.    Enjoy!



  1. I make tons of Banana muffins (tomorrow banana pineapple) but never made banana cookies - great idea! Hubby would love thes.e

  2. I just made these this evening!! Thanks for the recipe - the kids LOVED them!
    I have put them in the recipe book as Jill ALBOE's Banana Cookies!

  3. I love the alternative to banana bread & muffins. Can't wait to try this!


  4. I used to add banana to my oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies. It makes them so moist! ♥

  5. love this... I always have 1 left over banana and never know what to do with it

  6. I've never heard of them, but they look and sound delicious ~ they probably look so good 'cause they are in your Pyres cookie jar hehe! Judi

  7. Thanks for the recipe..seems I always ripe bananas!

  8. Oh how could these NOT be good?!

    Love the Pyrex jar, too, of course!


  9. Everything about this post is awesome! The drool inducing cookies and the fab Pyrex jar. They complement each other quit well I think. I wish I had a cookie...

  10. That sounds yummy- I will definitely make them next time I have a ripe banana. Now that school is starting I try to make all my lunchbox treats from scratch and I'm sure these will be a hit with my kids!
