Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

A few days ago the local grocery store had some overly ripe bananas on sale for .10 cents a pounds so I grabbed 4 lbs. of bananas. I froze most of them into some pre-made smoothie packs and decided to use 3 of the unfrozen bananas to make some homemade banana chocolate chip cookies. Here is the recipe that I used.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

1/2 cup butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 tsp. baking soda
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter and granulated sugar using an electric hand mixer. Beat in the large egg until combined. In another large mixing bowl mashed up the bananas with the baking soda. Let this mixture sit for 3-4 minutes and then beat the banana mixture into the first mixing bowl. Mix together the all-purpose flour, salt and ground cinnamon until combined. Beat this mixture into the first batter bowl and then fold in the semi-sweet chocolate chips by hand.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line your cookie sheets with a silicone non-stick baking mat. Drop cookie dough onto the baking sheet using a tablespoon and leaving 2" of space between each cookie. Bake in a preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until done. Remove and let them cool on a baking rack and then store cookies in an airtight container.

I have never thought to use banana in chocolate chip cookies. This is a great idea because I think it will enable me to reduce both the amount of fat and sugar that I usually put in my cookies. Thanks for the recipe.
