Question: Heard of banana bread, but does anyone have a recipe for banana cookies?
Looking for a regular or low fat/calorie recipe (I can modify as need be to my dietary requirements), thx!


Banana Cookies Recipe


* 1/2 cup of unsalted butter, room temperature
* 1 cup of sugar
* 1 egg, room temperature
* 1 cup of mashed bananas (about 2 ? large bananas)
* 1 teaspoon of baking soda
* 2 cups of flour
* pinch of salt
* 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon of ground mace or nutmeg
* 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves
* 1 cup of pecans (walnuts and chocolate chips are fine alternatives)


1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and continue to beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.

2 In a bowl, mix the mashed bananas and baking soda. Let sit for 2 minutes. The baking soda will react with the acid in the bananas which in turn will give the cookies their lift and rise.

3 Mix the banana mixture into the butter mixture. Mix together the flour, salt, and spices and sift into the butter and banana mixture and mix until just combined.

4 Fold into the batter the pecans or chocolate chips if using. Drop in dollops onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until nicely golden brown. Let cool on wire racks.

Makes about 30 cookies.


Try the banana chocolate chip cookie recipe at http://www.easy-baking-recipes.com/easy-… It is really easy and yummy. I have made it with and without chocolate chips and it is always good. Hope this helps.


not that it's low fat, but one day I was making chocolate chip cookies and wanted something different in them so I added a ripe banana. They turned out very good, so then I tried it with oatmeal cookies and it was even better.
