Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

These are such delicious cookies! And they're totally healthy because they have banana in them. Really. They have a super soft, almost muffin-like texture. Perhaps I should call them mookies.... I like that.

This is a high altitude recipe that I got from Click here to see the regular recipe if you don't need the high altitude version.

High Altitude Chocolate Chip Banana Mookies
  • 3 1/2 C flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 C unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 C white sugar
  • 1/2 C brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 C mashed ripe banana
  • 2 C chocolate chips
1. Preheat the oven to 375. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Stir in the vanilla and banana. Add the dry ingredients and mix just until combined (like you would for a muffin batter). Fold in chocolate chips.

3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment. Bake for 11-13 minutes, or until edges are lightly golden. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for about 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

To get the greatest banana flavor, use very ripe bananas. 2-3 medium will get you 1 cup of mashed. I love the banana flavor, but I don't like having chunks so I puree my bananas. Make sure you do not make these cookies too big, or your edges will be done but the mookie will be doughy in the middle. A medium sized cookie scoop works well, but you definitely don't want to go any bigger than that.
