Banana Chocolate Cookies

Banana Chocolate Cookies are a great way to use up those ripe bananas on your counter!

Chocolate Banana Cookies

Yesterday I had a couple of bananas that needed used up. I did not want to make my usual banana bread recipe.

I wanted to make something different. These chocolate banana cookies were just what I was looking for.

They are so good!

These are a great way to use up a banana or two that you might have. They also have whole wheat and oatmeal in it so they are at least a little healthy. You can easily leave out the whole wheat flour though and use 1 1/2 cups regular flour if you don’t have any or don’t want to use whole wheat.

If you are gluten free be sure to check out my gluten free version of these cookies.

  1. Sounds good! I will have to try these.

  2. Penless Thoughts says:

    Another one for me to try. I’m always needing to use up banana’s and like you I get tired of just the banana bread.

  3. YUM! I was just thinking yesterday that I had bananas to be used up- this sounds WAY yummier than banana bread! Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I thought I had enough bananas for bread, but I don’t and these look delicious!

  5. I just made these and they were delicious. I know you are always looking for healthier alternatives so I thought I would share what I did. I used 1 cup of spelt and 1/2 cup of white (you could use w/w) I used rapadura sugar instead of b. sugar. I used 1/4 cup of non hydr. margarine and 1/2 cup of applesauce in place of butter, reduced salt by half. They were amazing, moist and chewy

  6. Thanks Niki for letting me know you liked it. I am glad to know the changes you made also. I have never use rapadura sugar but I need to try it out. Thanks.

    OMG i made these today…. these are my new guilty pleasure! thank you soooooo very much!

  8. Made these today. Super yummy! Used an all purpose gluten free flour and it worked out fine. Ours aren’t as healthy probably, but they’re still yummy. Had to use mini chips as well and it worked out great :) Thanks for another keeper :)

  9. Made these last night. I added dried cranberries. This ones a keeper! Thanks for sharing.

  10. OMG, just made them this morning with my 3 yr old, so yummy, used 1&1/2 banana cause we love the flavor can’t wait for my kids to get home from school today they will LOVE me oh and hubby too. Thanks we love your recipes you never disappoint!!!

  11. I’m so glad I read the comments because I so badly want to make these! I tend to freeze my bananas and use them in an oatmeal, banana, peanut butter smoothie (which is super delicious), but I may have to make these. I’m new to gluten free so all I have is GF all purpose flour…do I use the same amount as listed in the recipe? I haven’t actually used the flour yet to know how it acts so I have no idea. Thanks so much!

  12. Made these today and took some to the PTA meeting as our snack and had requests for the recipe!! Love them, can’t wait to make them gluten free next time :)
