Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

My regular readers know my boys are home with me this summer… no summer camp for these kiddos.

And so we’ve been busy doing Camp Jenny. (What… did you think I was going to let them play video games all day?)

And so once a week we’ve been picking a recipe to try out… and this week, chocolate chip banana oatmeal cookies won out.

We had some overripe bananas sitting on the counter and I really didn’t want them to go to waste.

Why not put them in a cookie?!? 

Cookies 1

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 6 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 6 Tbsp cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup mashed overripe banana (approx. 1 large banana)
  • 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips

Note: If you want your cookies to look uniform, use a cookie scoop.

In my photos, we just used a large spoon to dole them out and you can see how textured they came out.

Unlike other cookies, these won’t spread out, so the way you put them on the cookie sheet is how they’re going to bake.

Also, I strongly recommend you use Silpat silicone baking sheets. I started using them years ago whenever I was baking cookies and it’s made all the difference.

  1. My brother-in-law makes killer chocolate chip oatmeal cookies – I’ll have to make these for him – Bet I beat him!! Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner link up!

    1. I really loved these… they’re fluffier and a little bit cake like (not so dense as other oatmeal cookies). Good luck at beating your BIL in the bake-off 😉

  2. Found this on the Saturday Sharefest. It’s the perfect recipe for this weekend since I’ve got a bunch of bananas that need to be eaten fast, thanks!

    1. Hope you enjoyed the cookies 🙂 I like that they’re fluffier than most. And they disappear quickly!

  3. Probably my favorite cookie, ever! I have a batch in the freezer waiting to cook. Thanks for sharing at this week’s Share Your Style #210.

    Hugs,
    Barb 🙂
