Just pulled the first batch out of the oven. These turned out so good! Didn’t have any chocolate chips so I only Folded in small pecan bits. So yummy!!!! We are very picky cookie eaters and this is a keeper recipe.
Excellent! Will make these instead of banana bread. Only added nuts and they were yummy!
My daughter is making these for her stepfathers FH so he doesn’t have to stop for food in AM. We are working with what we have. How do we think chocolate sprinkles will fare folded in?
I’d just do the sprinkles on top, as they tend to dissolve in batters and doughs. How did they turn out? Good to hear you are all working together to keep things going smoothly in a hard time.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
Let us know how they turn out!
Just pulled the first batch out of the oven and couldn’t wait for them to cool to taste one. Soft and flavorful; a deliciously different way to use overripe bananas!
Growing up my mother and grandmother made banana bread often. These taste very close to that. The cloves in this recipe are one of the things that are different. In my opinion it just adds a bit of a floral note to the taste. Not off putting but different. I didn’t have any milk or dark chocolate chips but I did have plenty of white chocolate chips on hand so I used those in combination with walnuts. The rest of the recipe I followed except like another reviewer I spread them out in a sheet pan. These are incredibly delicious and easy to make. I didn’t find the mixture runny as some commented. More like a stiff cake batter. I’m sure if refrigerated it would stiffen up if someone desired a more firm mixture for cookies. These are a perfect comparison as some have made to “muffin tops” . Definitely a favourite in my house. These will be made again and again, I guarantee it.
COVID 19 has us in our home and empty go very shelves…I dont have chocolate chips….what do you think about using Craisens?
I think that’s a GREAT idea, Craisins it is, Shannon. I think you’ll like it.
Yummy! They are helping my family get through the Covid-19 pandemic. Thank you.
Question: Can you freeze the baked cookies?
Yes, you may freeze the baked cookies. I’d eat them withing a few months so they don’t get freezer burned. But I imagine they’ll be gone before then!
Second batch sub coconut oil for butter.just as good. Pinch of cinnamon sugar on the top. I get about four dozen relatively small cookies. That helps with having more edge so more like a chewy cookie and not so much piled up so not quite as cakey in the middle I found that the larger cookies were not as good the second day. do use a rack for cooling if you leave them on the parchment they can get a little soggy bottomed. I haven’t been in this excited about a recipe in a long time they are absolutely delicious. Having one with some milky tea right now
We’re so glad banana cookies have you excited! It’s the little things, isn’t it, Donna? Thank you for reading and baking with us.
I love these cookies, this is the second time this week I am making them they are delicious. The only thing is they are more like muffin tops.
1/2 teaspoon of clove overpowered the taste of banana. I cut back to 1/8 of a teaspoon and the results were much better. Very moist and delicious. The cookies were gone in a day!
I think this easy to follow a recipe turned out some fabulous cookies.
My husband son and daughter loved these! The neighbor boy even loved them! I only added cinnamon and salt for spices and left out the nuts. So good! I wonder how they would hold up with gluten free all purpose flour? I also live at 9,000ft above sea level in Breck CO and they turned out perfect! Thank you!
These have an egg, so I get GF flour might work as a swap. Try it, and so glad these were a hit with your fam and neighbors!
I made this with one cup wholemeal flour and one cup plain white flour. I also threw in half of a chopped up chocolate bar coz I didn’t have any chocolate chips and can I just say they were DEVINE! I omitted the pecans as I didn’t have any. Will be making again and again and again!
Absolutely divine! Love it with pecans! Thanks for sharing!
My grandson is allergic to eggs. He loves bananas. Can I omit the egg? Bananas are a great substitute for eggs. What is I increased the bananas by 1/4 cup? Do you think that will work? Or should I use vinegar/baking soda method?
Yes, you may omit the egg. A flax egg would work great, too. Here’s more about using flax seed as an egg substitute.
Not a cook- what are ground cloves? Garlic?
What this recipe calls for is the *spice* cloves, in ground form. You might know cloves from pomanders or as an ingredient in gingerbread. If you don’t have ground cloves, you can simply omit them; the cookies will be delicious in any case. But I don’t recommend adding garlic :)
Thanks – LOL:) #AmericasWorstCook
Big hit in this house! I didn’t have any butter so I used crisco. No one could tell. This is a keeper!
Its delicious thank you so much for sharing it. Me and my twin enjoyed making them for our family.
Amazingly & delicious.It Make my top 5 favorite cookies list ,This cookie Takes third .Its 100 % going in my baking folder.I Love the cake texture of the cookie . Its like a small slice of fluffy banana haven.I did’t have any nuts but i Did add lots of chocolate (use te left over x-mas chocolate) and they turn out fine.
Next time i would add less ground clover + I would also add pecans and walnuts to the mix.If you want a Soften cookie cook them for less time and if you want a hard cookie i would flat them bit and book them longer :)
I was so excited I made your cookies. I had 1 & a 1/2 very ripe bananas I felt like cookies so just started away…then realised I had no sugar (ran out) so I substituted the 1 cup of sugar for 3/4 cup of molasses… And… Well just made these cookies and they are so so good!!!…came out perfectly. Even with the substitution, it was a very forgiving cookie, has great texture, fluffy with a beautiful color, and a all round flavorful taste. I already have the family eating away at them…might not last till tomorrow…so will be definitely making them again…thank you!
