Recipe – Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

Yesterday, I whipped up a batch of chocolate chip banana cookies for the Handsome Husband’s lunch. After they had cooled, I placed the cookies in 2 zip bags and stuck them in the goody drawer for safe keeping.

This morning, when I opened the drawer to grab a few cookies to pack in the HH’s lunch bag, I couldn’t find them.  Apparently Monkey Boy had found the cookies last night and ate all 18 of them.

Holy crack.  Who does that?

18 cookies?  Are you kidding me?

Note to self: Monkeys like bananas.  Especially if they are mashed up in a cookie.


1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 tsp. baking soda {15 Cool Uses for Baking Soda}
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
6 Tbs. unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 egg
1/2 cup raisins or cranberries


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a bowl, stir together the flour, oatmeal, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the brown sugar, butter, vanilla, banana and egg until well combined. Slowly stir in the flour mixture. Fold in the chocolate chips and raisins.

Using a 2″ cookie scoop place cookie dough balls on a silpat lined cookie sheet and bake at 325 for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.

Cool on a wire rack.  Serve with a big ole’ glass of milk.

    Looks yummy! I would eat all 18 cookies if I was a young growing boy;
    So do you think I could use the ripe bananas I have in the freezer in this recipe?
    Oh, and at Albertson’s today I pulled a Mavis. A free donut, and 2 free cartons of eggs – using coupons :) of course!

      Wahoooo! Way to go Jules! And yes, I don’t see why frozen bananas wouldn’t work as long as you thaw them out.

    I”m not a monkey or a boy, but yes could eat all cookies in a sitting!
    Thanks for the Silpat link! I sliced mine cutting bread this winter (note to self: DO NOT cut bread on a Silpat! It makes a horrible crunching sound! And is shredded beyond afterwards…)
    Off to mash up some bananas! :-)

    Don’t you know to hide goodies in your lingerie drawer? The only drawback would be that your undies smell like bananas.

    Yes mine would have no problem mowing through that many cookies. He’d probably drink a half gallon of milk with them.

    I made these today with coconut oil instead of butter and self raising flour. I had dark chocolate chips and skipped the raisins. They are the best cookies I made in a long time and dairy free too.
