Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Cookies

A banana bread shaped like cookies. I love banana bread and I love chocolate chip cookies so I thought of combining the two together into “Chocolate chip banana bread cookies”. I get the name is not the most original one, but these cookies taste divine and are also on the healthy side 🙂

I whipped them off in a VERY short time…Give them a try!


  • 1 + 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup mashed banana
  • 1 whole egg

Place flour, chocolate chips, baking soda and baking powder in a bowl and stir. In a separate bowl, beat sugar and butter until fluffly

Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat until incorporated. Add flour and mashed banana, stir just enough so all the ingredients are well mixed.

Chill dough in the fridge for 6 hours, then divide it into balls and bake them in pre-heated oven at 180 C for 9 to 12 min.

These cookies are soft and not too sweet, which is how I like them!
