Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

My kids love these cookies! The bananas really add a lot of flavor...and almost any cookie is going to be good if it has chocolate chips!

2 1/4 c. flour
1 c. sugar (less 2 1/2 Tbl. for cinnamon sugar mixture)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
2/3 c. shortening
1 c. mashed ripe bananas (I usually use 2 bananas)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chocolate chips
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Combine dry ingredients, except cinnamon. Cut in shortening. Add bananas, eggs, and vanilla; blend well. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Mix together the 2 1/2 Tbl. sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over cookies. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.


  1. We love, love, love these! They don't last long around here :-)

  2. I was so happy to find your recipe on Tiffany's link-up! I had a co-worker years ago who used to bring these in all the time, but I never snagged her recipe! I'm making some tonight!! Thanks for sharing.
