Ingredients you’ll need
Here’s a list of ingredients you’ll need to make these cookies. You can find my recipe card at the bottom of this post for the complete list with their amounts.
- Plain/all-purpose flour
- Baking soda
- Cornflour OR cornstarch: Makes for extra soft and thick cookies.
- Unsalted butter
- Light brown sugar
- Banana: You’ll need 1 small banana, which should be about 100g.
- Vanilla extract
- Chocolate chips: You can use milk, dark, or semi-sweet.
How to make Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
To make these cookies, simply start by whisking together the flour, baking soda, cornflour, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate large mixing bowl, whisk together the butter and sugar until combined. Add the banana and vanilla, and whisk until combined.
Add the dry ingredients, mix until just combined, then fold in the chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into 1.5oz balls, and place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. The cookies may look a little soft on top, but they’ll firm up as they cool.
Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
The printable recipe card with the FULL list of ingredients and instructions can be found at the bottom of this post.
NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.
These Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are:
- super quick and easy to throw together
- deliciously soft, thick, and chewy
- LOADED with banana flavour
- stuffed full of chocolate chips
- perfect for you banana lovers!
How long will these cookies last? These cookies will stay fresh, kept in an airtight container, at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Want freshly-baked cookies every time? Cookie dough balls can be kept in the fridge for up to 5 days, or frozen for up to 3 months. Bake straight from frozen.

Veganized these with vegan butter! Had to add about a tablespoon of almond milk at the end to help the batter come together. They taste delicious :)

I’ve just made these, but with Reece’s Peanut Butter Chips instead of chocolate chips - absolutely delicious!

Not sure what I'm doing wrong... They taste great, but they refuse to flatten out as they cook. I have now made these twice with the same result. The first time I used cups because it was easy. This time I used grandmother just to make sure every ingredient was perfectly measured. I still have cookie balls instead of cookies. My only guess is that maybe my oven is running a little hot, though I've never had this problem with any other cookies I have ever made. Again, tastes great, but hard to call it a cookie!

I'm sorry this has happened to you twice now. All I can suggest is to use less flour next time - try only using 2 cups (250g).

These are surely scrumptious! I'ma huge fan of chocolate chips and banana bread, so why not put 2 together. My kids would love these, and I'm putting these on my 'make list' as I speak :)
