Banana chocolate chip cookies

Banana chocolate chip cookies are soft, delicious, and beautifully brown on the edges. They are made with pantry ingredients and simple preparation.

Banana chocolate chip cookies
This recipe is phenomenal for three simple reasons. First, using any (very) ripe bananas on your counter is a great recipe. Usually, those would go to waste, but with this recipe, you can quickly turn them into something sweet and delicious. Second, this recipe takes less than half an hour to make, so it’s perfect for anyone who adores a homemade cookie but is busy during the week or on weekends. And third, they are perfect. The balance between banana, sugar, and chocolate chip is spot on, and we adore it.

Essential ingredients

These are the essential ingredients to make these divine banana chocolate chip cookies. This recipe is sponsored by LIDL Slovenia, as we sourced all the ingredients from their store. You can find more about the ingredients in the following lines.

Bananas - use ripe bananas for their natural sweetness and flavor. If you don't have them at home, feel free to plate the (unpeeled) bananas on a baking sheet and place them in the oven for a couple of minutes for them to brown. Then peel them and use them.

Flour - use all-purpose flour for this recipe.

Baking powder and baking soda will help the cookies to rise. 

Sugar - we prefer using white sugar. In this recipe, we use a small amount of sugar, as the bananas already give them sweetness.

Butter - makes the cookies buttery and delicious. Use room-temperature butter. Take it from the fridge about 30 minutes before baking.

Eggs - use two eggs in size M to bring the batter together.

Chocolate—Use your favorite chocolate chips. We prefer semi-sweet chocolate chips, but chocolate chunks will do the job, too.
