Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
Soft and tender Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are sure to tantalize your palate! Tired of baking banana bread with your ripe bananas? Make cookies instead!
Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
With the over abundance of overripe bananas in my house, and the fact that I haven’t made cookies since I shared these Lemon Thumbprint Cookies and this Chocolate Chip S’mores Skillet Cookie, it’s time for freshly baked cookies to make an appearance!
These cookies are pillowy and cake-like with the look of a traditional chocolate chip cookie!
Your taste buds will be pleasantly surprised by the hint of banana that you can taste!
Easy Fresh Baked Cookie Recipe
If you would like to have something freshly baked for the first week of school, this recipe is easy and makes 6 dozen!
It’s going to be a busy few weeks as everyone adjusts to early wake ups and new school schedules, so you’ll appreciated that I saved a couple of steps and ingredients in this recipe by using self-rising flour.
No mixing up baking powder or soda since the ingredients are pre-mixed into the flour.
Send the kids off to school and pour yourself a cup milk and enjoy these banana chocolate chip cookies…you deserve to treat yourself 😉
How To Freeze Cookies
You might want to freeze half of the recipe, which is super convenient when you want a fresh baked treat without the work!
Once the ingredients are mixed take half of the dough and put in in an air tight freezer bag or container.
Frozen raw banana chocolate chip cookie dough can last from 9-12 months, so be sure to label your cookies for the freshest batch.
In addition, you can scoop the dough as if you were going to bake them. Place the cookies on a parchment lined baking tray and place them in the freezer.
After about 30 minutes the cookies should be firm and can be moved to a freezer container.
Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper between the layers of cookies for easy removal when ready to bake.

I’ve never had anything other than banana nut bread, but the cookies look awesome too.

Choc Chip Uru
Oh, I love the sound of a pocket sized dessert!
These sound so good! I LOVE the combo of banana and chocolate but have never had it in cookie form. I am excited for that to change 🙂
These are a nice swap from the traditional chocolate chip cookie!
Now that I am writing these words, I can see over my laptop couple of ripped bananas sitting on my kitchen counter! This recipe came right on time!
Yay!! I love when the timing works in my favor 🙂
We are on the same wave length today. I posted some banana cookies too, love the addition of chocolate chips to them.
The bananas make cookies so moist! We must both have extra ripe bananas to use up 😉
Grumpys will only eat soft cookies! No crunchy cookies for him….so I’m sure these would go over well in our home.
These are super-moist. Wish I had a specific preference, I eat it all!! haha
Love these cookies! Great way to use up bananas!
Thank you! It’s definitely a nice change to use bananas in cookies instead of bread.
And these are practically guilt free with a hefty serving of fruit, right? Seriously, they sound amazing!
Absolutely, Liz! Chocolate is an antioxidant. We’re good to go 😉
Anything with chocolate is for me, adding banana even better.
Thanks, Norma! The duo are meant to be together; chocolate and banana!
These sound so good Sandra! I love banana chocolate bread, so I am sure I will love these cookies. Pinning!
Thank you, Sarah!
