Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Banana chocolate chip cookies combine two favorite treats into one. They’re soft and very easy to make.

It’s like banana bread wrapped into a cookie.

The idea to make these suddenly hit me after a weekend of watching girls munch on fresh bananas for energy. Of course instead of thinking healthy, my mind went to cookies…

I love banana bread and these cookies are very similar, with their soft and cakey texture.

They are also super easy to make. No mixer needed. I whisked everything in a bowl and half an hour later I had a dozen cookies cooling.

If you like this recipe you might like my banana cake, too!
