Have you made chocolate banana cookies yet? They’re a bit like banana bread cookies with fresh fruit and oatmeal too. Light and simple to make they’ve become one of our favorite new desserts.

  • My oldest daughter actually came up with these when we had a ton of bananas and she wanted to bake.
  • She wanted to just make simple chocolate chip cookies but with a twist.

If you follow my blog at all you know I hate to waste anything. I came up with 26+ overripe banana recipes because of this when I bought too many and they were turning quite brown. The best time to use them in baking I say!

These banana oatmeal cookies didn’t last long in our house. 😉

Chocolate Banana Cookies

Actually, you don’t have to wait until you have brown bananas for these. Fresh is fine too. Overripe banana cookies just make them sweeter.

Chocolate banana cookies

  1. Chocolate chips – I prefer mini semi sweet
  2. Mashed banana
    1. overripe or ripe bananas can be used
  3. Flour
  4. Oats – not instant
  5. Brown sugar
  6. Oil
  7. Yogurt
    1. makes them moist, soft and chewy
    2. we used vanilla but banana would be even better
    3. not low fat
  8. Egg
  9. Baking soda and powder
  10. Optional – a heaping tbsp. of peanut butter
  11. Baking sheet with parchment paper

They aren’t going to rise a lot, but a bit. The texture is more dense than cake like just to give you an idea.

I like to put them on wire racks to cool immediately once they’re done. This will keep them really soft.

You’ve got to try them!!
