I have made banana bread and banana muffins but I have never made banana cookies. I had some VERY ripe bananas and figures lets see what happens. They turned out better than I thought. As you can see I added chocolate chips and peanut butter chips to my dough. It made it taste delish. You can add nuts if you want or just leave out any extras and just have simple banana cookies. These cookies are not like your normal cookie. They are more of a cake cookie.
Ingredients: (about 48 cookies)
1 Cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 Cup sugar
3/4 Cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Cup mashed ripe bananas
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 Cup flour
3/4 cup peanut butter chips (optional)
3/4 Cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In your stand mixer, blend together butter and sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend for about 3 minutes until fluffy.
Add mashed bananas.
Add baking soda, salt, and flour.
Scoop cookie dough balls on parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden.
Allow to cool and I recommend not stacking them, as they will stick together. I use wax paper to separate them.
