Banana Cookies

"I had some left over ripe bananas and I am getting tired of making banana bread. Wanted a change and found this recipe. It really wasn't something that I would normally try, but I am glad that I did. These are wonderful, although next time I would skip the raisins and add chocolate chips instead. A real cakey cookie. I can't remember how many cookies I got out of a mix, so I will guess."

Questions & Replies

  1. how many carbs in one of the banana cookies?


  1. Yum! 12 minutes at 400 in my oven was just right. After reading the "bland" reviews, I added cinnamon and coconut. Delicious!
  2. Soft cake like cookies. I had one very ripe banana that I wanted to get rid of before it fell apart. I made half a recipe, using butter and raisins, adding a quarter teaspoon of banana flavoring in addition to the vanilla. Some people like these straight out the oven (kind of bland) still good, but I prefer them after they have cooled (sweeter and a little more flavorful).
  3. These were very good! I had 2 bananas to use up that had gotten all mushy and I didn't feel like making banana bread. These were quick, easy and a yummy way to use up those bananas! I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and some white chocolate chips I had on hand. My 21 month old daughter really seemed to enjoy them so, I'm glad there was some nutritious fruit in them! She's a very picky eater! Thanks for sharing! Will definitely make these again and look forward to some variations!
  4. These are a family favorite!! I get cheers every time I make them :) Thanks for posting!!
  5. I was searching for something a little different to make and I came across this recipe. These cookies came out great! I added peanut butter chips to mine. Thanks! I will definitely be making these again. :D


  1. The first batch cooked at 400 was a bit dark on the bottom for my taste, i cooked the next batch at 350 for 8 min and put the cookie sheet closer to the top of the oven, and they turned out perfect. (I made small cookies). Also i used banana extract instead of vanilla.j
