Chocolate-Chip Banana Cookies

These cookies are fast and easy to make, and are a delicious treat! They are easiest to make in a food processor, but you can also mash up the banana and then whisk the ingredients together in a bowl.



Makes about 3 dozen

  • 1/3 cups of margarine
  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1.25 cups of flour
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoons of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. Process margarine, sugars, egg, and vanilla for 2 minutes, scraping down sides of the bowl as necessary.
  2. While the machine is running, drop in the banana and process until blended.
  3. Add the dry ingredients and process until the flour disappears, using quick on/off turns.
  4. The dough should be very soft, like a thick cake batter. Mix the chocolate chips into the batter.
  5. Drop teaspoon sized scoops of the batter onto greased cookie sheets.
  6. Bake at 400oF for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden.

The cookie dough is so delicious that you may be tempted to lick the bowl clean!20161016_214029
