Banana chocolate chip cookies combine two favorite treats into one. They’re soft and very easy to make.
These chocolate chip cookies are like banana bread or banana cake wrapped into a cookie. They are soft and cakey and so easy to make. No mixer required. All you do is whisk the ingredients in a bowl and 30 minutes later you have a fresh-baked batch of banana chocolate chip cookies.
Easy No-Mixer Cookie Recipe
I’ve made these cookies many times and so have my readers! You don’t have to take my word for it, here’s what some readers have said about this recipe:
“I made these cookies just now and they are absolutely to die for! …They turned out so soft and fluffy.”
‘Mine turned out soft! I like this recipe.”
“These turned out so yummy!!!!! They turned out kind of like banana muffin tops. Loved how easy the recipe was. This will be my new go-to recipe for using up ripe bananas.”
I love the combination of chocolate and bananas in these cookies. It works really well!
- Overripe mashed bananas
- Granulated sugar
- Vegetable oil
- All-purpose flour
- Baking powder
- Ground cinnamon
- Baking soda
- Vanilla extract
- Semisweet chocolate chips
Note: Just like banana bread, you want to use overripe bananas for this recipe. I usually use ones that have peels that are dark brown. That means the sugars in the fruit have intensified and will give your cookies a strong banana flavor.
You will need two bowls for this recipe. Whisk the bananas, sugar, vegetable oil, vanilla, and eggs in one. In another bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and stir until the dough comes together. Mix in the chocolate chips. The dough will be very sticky.
Scoop generous tablespoons of the dough to form the cookie balls. Drop them on a prepared baking sheet. Space them about two inches apart.
Bake the cookies for 10 minutes at 350°F. or until they are slightly firm and lightly browned. Cool the cookies on a baking rack.
How to Store the Cookies
Keep them in an airtight container and they will keep for several days at room temperature. You can also freeze the baked cookies for later.
