Spotlight: Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Bananas. Chocolate. Cookies. An amazing combination that is totally underrated!

Since these cookies have bananas, they should totally become a part of your indulgent weekend brunch!  ;) 

Growing up, my mom would always make banana chocolate chip muffins so I wanted to try recreating that memory into a delectable cookie!

Recipe: Adapted from Allrecipes

Ingredients: 

2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour 

2 teaspoons of baking powder

1/2 tsp salt 

1/4 tsp baking soda 

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar 

2/3 cup unsalted butter, softened 

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 ripe bananas (mashed) 

2 cups of chocolate chips (I prefer Ghirardelli premium baking chips) 

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together, and set aside.
  2. Cream the butter with both sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Mix in the mashed bananas. Add the flour mixture, and stir until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips with rubber spatula. (If you feel you need more than 2 cups of chocolate chips, feel free to add to your liking) 
  3. Not a required step, but I like to refrigerate the dough for about 15 mins or so to make the dough more stiff to easily spoon onto baking sheets  
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes. I start to check after 10 mins as my oven can get hot fairly quickly!
