Banana Chocolate Chip Cookie

These cookies are a favourite of the kids in my family. Bananas & chocolate chips in a cookie! Nothing bad here!! This cookie recipe is made in the food processor & really quick to pull it together. They bake up into little dome shapes & are cake-like, chocolatey & yum!

This recipe is from Norene Gilletz…another one from her THE PLEASURES OF YOUR PROCESSOR, one of my favourite go-to cook books

Make this recipe in your mixer if you do not have a food processor…

I like to take these with me when I go to visit our grandkids.. they travel well as they are a sturdy cookie… I usually have a carry-on suitcase full of baking..since they live away & I love to bake, I like to take baking with me…

Here is the recipe from Norene Gilletz


2/3 cup butter or margarine

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

2 eggs

1/2 tsp vanilla

2 large ripe banana…about 1 cup

2 1/2 cups flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

pinch of salt

3/4 cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 400f   Line baking sheets with parchment paper

  1. In the bowl of your food processor, put the butter, both sugars, eggs & vanilla. Process this for about 2 minutes, scrape down the sides of the bowl a couple of times with a sturdy spatula…sometimes the silicone ones get cut by the blade…
  2. With the food processor running, drip in chunks of banana & process until blended
  3. Take the lid off & add the dry ingredients & process, using the pulse function on & off until mixed & you don’t see any flour… scrape down the dishes if needed
  4. Add the chocolate chips & process with a couple quick on/off
  5. Drop onto prepared baking sheets.. I use a 1 tbsp cookie scoop… the recipe says to use a tsp but I make mine bigger…
  6. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes until golden brown


I do not have pictures preparing these cookies…it is really straight forward though…

This recipe make lots.. i got about 4.5 dozen cookies…

Many people ask me "how did you do that?" "will you show me how?' So I decided to make a blog about what I cook and bake. I am in no way a professional cook, but I love to feed people and try new things as well as making the "old foods" My friends are wonderful cooks, each with their own 'specialty' and i will be having guest cooks here, showcasing their favourite things to cook as well!! I hope you enjoy this blog and maybe decide to make some of these foods yourself! I am always available to answer any questions you might have about anything you see here. Some of my recipes are unique to me but most are not. They are all recipes I have found in a variety of ways, some are old family recipes that date back decades and some are new ones!
