I had some bananas that were quite a bit darker then they need to be for eating so I knew I wanted to make a cookie using them. Martha Stewart's Banana-Walnut-Chocolate-Chunk Cookies did the trick. This is the recipe that I used with my changes.
Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies (adapted from Martha's Banana-Walnut Chocolate Chunk Cookies)
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 light brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 ripe/over ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 8 oz bittersweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- Combine flours ,salt and baking soda in a bowl; set aside.
- Mix butter and sugars with mixer until fluffy.
- Add egg, vanilla and banana continue mixing until well blended.
- Then add flour mixture.
- Stir in oats, walnuts and chocolate chunks.
- Spoon out in hefty scoops onto a parchment linked baking sheet.
- (Or just a greased cookie sheet is fine)
- (Batter will be gloppy or runny not firm or packable)
- Bake for 12 minutes at 375 degrees.
These look great - I almost put my hand thru the screen to grab one!!
Oh thank you thank you. I have some very dark bananas I was going to make banana bread with, but I can't find my recipe that I adore. I'll make the cookies instead! Do you have an awesome banana bread recipe to post?
oh those look delicious. Thank you for posting the recipe! I love banana nut bread, and basically anything banana flavored, so these are perfect!
Great way to keep the kids' energy up and use up those nanners! :)
I was about to say I'm done, over with banana bread this year. This IS a cool way to use up those ole' yellers!
Sounds yummy! I was actually wondering what to do with my overripe bananas. I will give this a try later today! Thanks! :()
I love chocolate and bananas! Perfect, thanks!
Hi Cathy - these were really great. Wouldn't that be fun if we could sample stuff through the computer?
Joanna-I think I posted banana bread a bit ago. Do a search of my blog to find it!
Hi Megan-I love that combo too!
Hi Jenn-yah...like the kids need their energy levels kept up!!!
Hi Peter-It was way better than banana bread.
Hi Jen721-glad I could help!
Hi Zakary-great combo!
I purposely buy bananas over ripe for just these sorts of occasions. (because you can get them for 1/4 of the price, and freeze them in their skins, and still produce treats like a gourmet baker.)
This one will definitely be added to my family favourite cook book.
bananas and chocolate is always a great combination. Hmmm, so many sweets around and I ma trying to lose weight :-p
I just feel so hungry now
wow that sounds good
seems almost like the Banana Chocolate Chip Bread at breadsmith.
yummy! I love banana bread and banana muffin but ive never tried a cookie! looks scrumptious!
This sounds yummy! I love the banana and chocolate combo and combining it in a cookie sounds excellent!
My co-workers think I can't cook. Truth is, I'm rarely inspired to make anything to take in on food-days, but THESE look really great!
Just wait until my team gets up from their fainting dead away to try them! :-)
Those banana chocolate chip cookies look good. I love bananas and dark chocolate, do you have any recipes combining the two? I love pie!
