Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are moist and cake like and have just the right amount of spice. I highly recommend using parchment paper when baking these for a nice brown smooth bottomed cookie.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


1/2 Cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
1/2 C Brown Sugar
1/2 C White Sugar
1 Egg
1 C Mashed Bananas (about 2-3 large bananas)
2 Cups All-purpose Flour
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1/4 tsp. Salt
½ tsp Cinnamon
½ tsp Nutmeg
1/4 Tsp Ground Cloves
½ Cup chopped Pecans (optional)
2/3 Cups Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 °. Sift flour, soda, salt and spices then set to the side. Cream the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time until mixed, and then the mashed bananas. Slowly, with the mixer on, add dry ingredients. Add chips and nuts and mix until just blended. Drop spoonfuls of batter onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes or centers are not doughy. Let cool slightly.
