Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas, about 1 cup
  • 3 1/4 cups (406g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup (2 sticks or 226g) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (200g) light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, add the 2 bananas. Mash them up using a fork and set aside. They will turn brown if you plan on letting them sit too long. To prevent this, add a little lemon juice to the mixture.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, add in the flour, baking soda, salt, and cornstarch, Whisk to combine. Set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add in the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar, Beat on medium with a hand mixer until light and fluffy.
  5. Add in the mashed bananas and vanilla extract. Beat on medium just until the bananas are worked in.
  6. Dump in the dry ingredients and mix until the flour is worked into the dough.

  7. Set aside 1/3 cup of the milk chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  8. Add the remaining chocolate chips to the cookie dough. Fold in using a spatula.
  9. Using a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the cookies onto the prepared cookie sheet spacing them 2 inches apart.
  10. Add 3 to 4 chocolate chips from the reserved 1/3 cup to the tops of each ball of cookie dough.
  11. Place into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Let cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack or a paper towel lined counter.
