Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies



My favorite recipe of late are these delicious Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies. I always feel like my Chocolate Chip Cookies are too crunchy unless they are eaten right after I get them out of the oven. The added banana in this recipe makes the cookies pillow soft, no matter when you eat them. (I like them for breakfast)

We also like to make pizookies out of them. I just freeze some of the dough, and they only take 1 minute to prepare in my ramekins, and 12-15 minutes to bake. Seriously, the best and easiest recipe I have tried in a long time.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together, and set aside.
  2. Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Mix in the mashed bananas. Add the flour mixture, and stir until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes.

here's a little hint: if you underbake your chocolate chip cookies by a few minutes (3 or 4) they will never be crispy

These look so good. I'm obsessed with bananas with nutella, and this seems like it will satisfy the same craving. Can't wait to try it!
