My sister Rachel has started to become a little baker herself. Unfortunately, I can’t take any credit for this recipe, only the pictures. My sister had found this recipe online a long time ago. The original recipe wasn’t very good, but she had the knack to tweak it into a delicious and highly addictive cookie, that tastes and has the texture of a banana muffin.
I’m not a huge cookie person, but I could easily eat three of these at a time. If this cookie wasn’t good enough already, she sprinkles cinnamon sugar on top right when they come out of the oven, yummmmmm…
These cookies are easy to make and you probably have the ingredients already in your pantry. If you’re a mom and have little ones in school, I swear their friends will be jealous. If I was in 3rd grade again, I would try and barter my fruit snacks for these cookies!
You will be the hero of your family for at least as long as these cookies last, I promise! Banana fans rejoice, because these cookies are delicious! I think that’s the second time I’ve said they’re delicious, but hey, they REALLY ARE D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S.
Thank goodness Rachel started baking, because I would be lost without these cookies in my life. Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic. How about you make these and see for yourself! Thanks for the recipe Rachel!
Banana Chocolate Chip Muffin Top Cookie Recipe:
2 1/4 C. All Purpose Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 C. Softened Buter (1 Stick)
1 C. Sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
3 Very Ripe Bananas (Mashed)
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 Bag of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips (Rachel likes to use regular size chips, I prefer the mini chips)
Preheat the oven to 350.
1. Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, cream butter until fluffy, add sugar and continue to mix until fluffy and pale yellow in color.
2. Add one egg at a time, vanilla and mashed bananas.
3. Once incorporated, add your dry ingredients (flour, salt and baking powder). After the dry ingredients are incorporated, add your chocolate chips. (Note: Your batter will be runner than normal cookie dough).
4. With a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, scoop spoonfuls of batter. Bake in the oven for 8-12 minutes or until the cookies edges are just starting to turn golden brown. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar after cookies are taken out of the oven.
