Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Banana Cookies with Chocolate Chips

These Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are nutty, chocolatey, soft, easy to make, and unbelievably delicious! They are the perfect grab-and-go cookie, perfect for snacks, adding to lunch boxes, or having on hand throughout the week for a healthier treat. They are gluten-free as we used almond flour in place of regular flour, and they can easily be made vegan by substituting the egg for a flax egg! Y’all are going to love these cookies!

What we love about these cookies are the flavor and texture. They are made with cocoa powder and have chocolate chips for a nice chocolate flavor! Plus, they have a nice banana bread flavor! So, so good.

What’s in Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies?

  • Almond Flour – Gives these cookies a nice nutty flavor!
  • A Moderately Ripe Banana – Aka, bananas that have those little freckles and brown spots on it. That’s the type of banana you are looking for for this recipe!
  • Cocoa Powder – Is full of antioxidants and has a nice chocolatey flavor!
  • Baking Soda
  • Salt
  • Coconut Oil – This ingredient makes a huge difference in the texture and flavor. It doesn’t add any “coconut flavor”; rather, it enhances the chocolate flavor!
  • Egg – Or substitute a flax egg for vegan.
  • Brown Sugar or Cane Sugar both work well in this recipe.
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Chocolate Chips or Gems
  • Optional – Chopped Walnuts – for extra yumminess!
  • Optional – Cinnamon for extra flavor!

These cookies are really made with a few base ingredients and are absolutely delicious!

How to make Banana Cookies:

Step 1: To a medium bowl, add the banana and mash it up with a fork.

Step 2: Add in the sugar, vanilla extract, melted coconut oil, and whisk until smooth. Add in egg and whisk until combined.

Step 3: To the same bowl, add the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, cinnamon (optional), and salt on top. Use a spatula and fold it in the batter.

Step 4: Add in the chocolate and chopped walnuts (optional), and fold it in the batter again. Chill the dough for about 30 minutes to 1 hour. This will help the cookies firm up before they bake.

Step 5: Preheat the oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out about 2 tbsp of the batter and place it on the baking sheet.

Step 6: Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they start to darken/brown on the edges. Remove from the oven to rest on the baking sheet for an extra 5 minutes before enjoying!

Frequently Asked Questions:

How to store leftover banana cookies?

After the cookies are completely cooled, store in an airtight container at room temperature (or in the refrigerator) for up to 3-4 days. We prefer to store the cookies in the refrigerator as they are a nicer texture the next day.

Can I make these banana chocolate cookies vegan?


Yes! Substitute the egg for 1 flax egg, which is 1 tbsp flaxseed and 2 tbsp water.
