Calories Per Serving 15
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, (room temperature)
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg, (room temperature)
  • 1 cup Mashed Bananas (about 2 ½ large bananas)
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 cups Flour
  • A pinch Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Mace or Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
  • 1 cup Pecans (or walnuts/ chocolate chips)
How to make Banana Cookies:
  • 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.
  • In a bowl, mix the mashed bananas and baking soda. Let it 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.
  • Mix the banana mixture into the butter mixture.
  • Mix together the flour, salt, and spices and sift into the butter and banana mixture. Mix until just combined.
  • Fold the pecans or walnuts or chocolate chips into the batter.
  • Drop in dollops onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes or until nicely golden brown.
  • Let cool on wire racks. Serve.
