Loaded Banana Cookies

This recipe makes a chewy, delicious cookie that is almost more like a muffin top than a cookie. They aren't too sweet, and are very satisfying.
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil (may also use shortening or butter)
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp banana extract (optional)
  • 3 mashed very ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (walnuts may also be used)
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • ~12 oz chocolate chips (optional)

  1. Heat oven to 350°F
  2. Cream coconut oil and sugar together. Add mashed bananas, vanilla extract, banana extract, and eggs, mix well. Add pecans, peanuts, coconut, chocolate chips, flour, and baking powder, stir until incorporated.
  3. Using a large cookie scoop (~1/4 cup) scoop dough onto a greased cookie sheet, leaving plenty of space between each cookie (I only put 6 on each cookie sheet) and bake for 15 minutes.

  • White chocolate chips can be used instead of chocolate
  • A small scoop makes perfect mini cookies
  • I leave out the chocolate chips and drizzle chocolate over the cookies to make them more attractive

Yields ~16 large cookies
