Make sure the bananas you use are very ripe and mostly brown. The overripe bananas provide a mushy texture that adds flavor and helps evenly distribute bananas throughout the batter.

The butter should be at room temperature so that when mixed with the eggs, sugar, and vanilla, it creates a paste texture instead of the butter clumping together.

Tips for Your Banana Bread Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is easy, but there are other tips or alterations to consider when making this banana bread chocolate chip cookie recipe.

  • Chocolate Chips: Decide which type of chocolate chips you’d like to have, whether it’s dark, milk, semi-sweet, or even white chocolate. We use dark chocolate chips in this recipe.
  • Nuts or Other Mix-ins: You can get more creative and add chopped nuts, dried fruit, or even shredded coconut.
  • Ice cream: Serve your cookies with ice cream! A vanilla ice cream would add a great texture contrast and provide a sauce to moisten the cookies.
  • Butter: Butter can be swapped out for margarine, vegetable oil, or coconut oil. 
  • Vanilla: We recommend using Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Extract. This is the best premium vanilla available in the market. In our recipe, we used Badia’s vanilla extract because that is what was available at our local grocery store.
