Ingredients 

  • 1 ½ cup Plain Flour 
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 
  • ½ teaspoon Salt 
  • ½ cup Unsalted Butter at room temp (use vegan butter for vegan option)

  • ½ cup Light Brown Sugar (firmly packed) 
  • 1 large ripe Banana (mashed)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, sift the flour, baking soda and salt. 
  3. In another large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer. Mix for about 2 minutes until it is smooth. 
  4. Next, add the banana and vanilla into the wet ingredients and mix on a slow speed until combined. 
  5. After that, gradually add flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix slowly and do not overmix. 
  6. Add the chocolate chips and stir with a wooden spoon, mix until incorporated. If the dough is warm, place in the fridge for 5-10 minutes. 
  7. Now spoon a heaped tablespoon and place on the prepared baking sheets, 6-8 per tray, however, bake the cookies 1 sheet at a time.
  8. Cooking time depends on the size, for example, for small cookies bake for 8-10 minutes, large cookies bake for 10-13 minutes. You want the bottoms and edges to look slightly brown and the tops feel firm when lightly touched. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
  9. Et voila! Enjoy your banana chocolate chip cookies!
