They taste really good (because let’s be honest, why wouldn’t they?), but they’re more like banana bread disguised as a cookie. I wouldn’t make again.
Delish!!!! And I screwed up a bit!! I added sugar (thankfully I was cutting in sugar in 1/2) so I added a little less then a 11/2 cup to cream with butter. I also forgot the egg until the end when I noticed I forgot it so I just mixed it in last minute! They were delish! Everyone loved them! They tasted like muffin tops!! Thank you for sharing!! I will make these again!
I was looking to make something with my “ripe” bananas instead of banana bread and this was the first recipe that popped up under banana cookies. I made it exactly as the recipe called for using chocolate chips. They are soft and delicious. I will make them again. Thanks for sharing.
What a great story and a great recipe. Just the recipe I was looking for, for my less than fresh bananas. Thanks
So easy to make and REALLY good! They are a wonderful fluffy texture. My whole family loved them. I swapped out the pecans for chocolate chips and worked well.
Absolutely delicious recipe, thanks for sharing! I modified it a tiny bit by using coconut sugar & coconut oil as substitutes for the sugar & butter, and white whole wheat flour. I also added in 2-3tbsp of cocoa powder and a small handful of dark chocolate chips. The dough was very runny, most likely due to my modifications, but the cookies rose beautifully and came out perfect! Yummmmy :)
These cookies are excellent! I used only cinnamon and walnuts. We love them!!
I just baked these! They are amazing! I had read in one of the top comments how someone made these and the batter was too runny. So I was expecting that, but for me it turned out perfect consistency! Also, you said to mix the bananas and the baking soda together then allow them to sit for about two minutes, I left mine to mingle for about 15-20 mins before adding it to the butter mixture and the result was fantastic! My cookies are super fluffy and they rose high. My whole family loved them! Definitely will try this again very soon! Thank you!
these banana bread cookies are amazing i have made these multiple times. And everyone always raves about them. I agree with the previous post about letting the banana baking soda mixture sit a little bit longer for really fluffy cookies.
They turned out perfectly!!! I love them and so do the kids. Added chocolate chips mmm mmm mmm will definitely make these again!!
Cookies nice and moist but, I think it needed more sugar. Unless my bananas were way too ripe.
I was disappointed, in spite of your warning about being soft and cake-like. These are not cookies, they are more like individual servings of sweet banana cake. Excellent flavor, but much too soft to be called a cookie, IMO.Because of an allergy issue, I used chocolate chips instead of nuts. But I don’t think that’s the cause of the texture issue.Still tasty, though.
This is Deanne, I made the banana cookies again today. They are beyond delicious. I have to share what we did yesterday, we were making almond Crescent cookies at the same time as I was making the banana cookies and I put In two cups of confectionary sugar instead of flour. I guess grandma needs new glasses. Lol
We have added this recipe to our favorite cookie recipe book.
Just made the banana cookies, they spread out over the whole cookie
Sheet. Iooks like carmalized sugar. The batter was extremely thin.
We added more flour and they came out paper thin. Taste good, but are not a cookie consistency. Just added more flour.
Both my husband and I are avid bakers. Would love to have them come out as pictured.
I made these last night and they are delicious. They are more of a muffin top cookie than a soft cookie. The spices are definitely overpowering but they work great with the banana flavor. If you’re looking for a more subtle flavor of spice I recommend cutting to measurements of the cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg in half. I used dark chocolate instead of the pecans but the cookie would definitely be good with both nuts and chocolate.
these are great thank you for the recipe
What will be the shelf life of this cookie since fresh banana is used?
Hi, Vishaal! These should last at least 5 days at room temperature. Enjoy!
This is the best banana cookie recipe ever!! I just made the cookies and tasted them fresh out of the oven. Try it you will like this recipe.
These cookies are great for simple dessert or to take to a gathering. The flavors blend together and sing in your mouth. Everyone that eat one enjoyed and grabbed another. Easy and everyone loves them.
