Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies - a perfect recipe for using overripe bananas!

I often find myself with overripe bananas in my pantry that need to be used up. I have lots of banana bread recipes, but sometimes my kids are just not in the mood for banana bread. I needed a variation. Cookies came to mind, so I started searching.

Recipe for banana chocolate chip cookies that are chewy instead of cakey.

Most banana cookies that I’ve tried are soft, fluffy, and cakey. These cookies are more on the chewy side like traditional chocolate chip cookies, which I happen to prefer. They are so simple to make. Just scoop the dough onto cookie sheets and bake. No chilling, no rolling, no fuss. They will be my go-to banana cookie from now on!

Recipe for easy banana chocolate chip cookies. These banana cookies always get rave reviews!

I ended up sending some of the cookies to work with my husband, and they got rave reviews from his co-workers as well. I didn’t add chopped nuts this time, but I think that would be a perfect addition.

    I used 1 cup of chocolate chips instead of 2 cups and mine turned out more cake like. They are PHENOMENAL!!! I am keeping this recipe forever!!!

  2. How long these can stay on room temperature? incase I bake a big batch do I need to freeze them?

  3. This is a perfect banana chocolate chip recipe—chewy, with a crisp exterior. I used milk chocolate chips. Delish. Just what I was looking for. Thanks, Kara!

  4. Melvin Baylor says:

    so glad I come across this!

  5. Michelle Denton says:

    These are amazing! I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect!

  6. I made these with Stevia instead of the white sugar (did use the brown sugar) and added 1/3 c nonfat greek yogurt to the mix. Everything else was the same. They turned out great! Mine were more like muffins (cakelike) than cookies, but no one cared. My son ate 3 and asked for another.

  7. My family loves these so much I just made a second batch in a week! I used gluten-free flour and room temp coconut oil in place of regular flour and butter.

    • So glad to hear that they turned out with your substitutions. Thanks for letting me know, I bet some of my readers will be happy to hear it!

  8. These cookies are so good! Super soft and tasty. I did not have any cornstarch on hand, so I substituted with arrowroot. Added 1 cup of toasted chopped walnuts. Will definitely make these again 🙂

  9. I just mixed up the banana chocolate chip cookie recipe and realized there were no eggs in the recipe. Is that correct?
