Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies (12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies)

Welcome to the 11th week of 12 weeks of Christmas Cookies!

For this weeks cookie I decided to share another banana recipe. The last banana cookies I shared seemed to be pretty well received even though its not the most conventional Christmas flavor. Due to some Thanksgiving mispurchases, I ended up with a ton of over ripe bananas that were just perfect for baking with this weekend. These cookies didn’t turn out quite how I was hoping, but it was a happy mistake. Instead of turning out like a traditional chocolate chip cookie, they ended up more like muffin tops, which was fine with me!

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Baking Bites
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup mashed banana (1 medium)
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, or mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, followed by vanilla extract and mashed banana. Stir in flour mixture, then mix in the chocolate chips (or chocolate chunks) until well-distributed in the batter
Shape dough into 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls and place on baking sheet, leaving about 3 inches between cookies to allow for spread.
Bake for 11-14 minutes, until cookies are a light golden brown.
Allow to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes about 32 cookies.
