It’s Friday and we are celebrating with banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookies! There is no better way to start the weekend than by baking a batch of cookies. If you are like me, you probably have brown bananas on your counter that are begging to be turned into a delicious treat. So give the classic banana bread a rest and try these cookies!

Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 2 1/2 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15-18 minutes

A great recipe for using up your brown bananas! These cookies freeze well too!


4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large banana, mashed
1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugars, mix until smooth. Add in vanilla extract and egg. Next, add the banana. Beat well.

Slowly add in flour mixture until just combined. Stir in oats and chocolate chips.

Drop cookie dough by heaping tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets that have been lined with parchment paper or Silcone baking mats. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-18 minutes or until golden. Remove cookies from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

    You make the best cookies! These would not last long at my house.

    I made these right away after your post went up. They’re as amazing as they look! I popped the dough into the freezer and have been baking cookies off a handful at a time and they’ve been a big hit. Thanks!

    I’m craving these now and our little store up here in hills is closed for the night. Tomorrow I will be searching the store shelves for rotten (or really ripe. lol) bananas.

    Now I need to try to go to sleep….wish me some”sweet” (cookie) dreams.

    Oatmeal cookies are my hubby’s favorite and he’s always bugging me to make banana bread too so I know he’d go crazy over these – I’m saving the recipe :)

  24. Jessie — August 15, 2010 @ 6:39 am

    So good. I made these right away even if it was 94 degrees with a heat index of 100 and I wasn’t running the air that day. They were wonderful! Thank you!
