Banana Bread Cookies

Banana Bread Cookies
Adapted from: With a Cherry on Top


  • 1 1/4 cups Flour
  • 1 Tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/4 Tsp. Salt
  • 2 Tsp. Cinnamon
  • 6 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • 3 Bananas, chopped


  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugar and brown sugar until it resembles a crumbly texture (about 1 minute).  Add in the egg and vanilla and continue beating until mixture becomes smooth and creamy (about 1 minute).  Add in half of the flour mixture and blend in at a low speed.  Add in the remaining flour mixture and continue blending in on low.  Stir in the oatmeal and chocolate chips; mix until evenly distributed throughout the mixture.  Carefully mix in the banana pieces. (I just very ripe bananas and ended up smushing them a bit into the mix)
  3. Using a tablespoon, drop the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake until the edges are lightly browned (about 15 minutes).  Carefully remove from the oven and let cool on pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
