Chocolate chip banana cookies …super soft, delicious and the perfect way to use up those over-ripe bananas!
Are you tired of making banana bread with old bananas? Try whipping up a batch of these chocolate chip banana cookies! My whole family loves them! I won’t tell you how many I ate. Let’s just say more than one. ;) You could also lighten this recipe up by using applesauce in place of the butter. You could even add some chopped walnuts in as well. My kids are not a fan of nuts, so we didn’t add those this time, but they do add a nice crunch. And you don’t have to add the chocolate chips… but chocolate just makes everything better. I tend to always add in a few extra. ;)
Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
Happy baking! xo -jamielyn
