Frosted banana cookies are a staple at our house. I think they’ll be a new favorite at yours too. They are by far my husband’s favorite cookie. I’ve been making these delightful cookies for well over 20 years! I’m so excited to share the recipe with you. Brown bananas are never a problem at my house because it means we get frosted banana cookies!
When it comes to frosted banana cookies the more ripe the bananas the better. Don’t be afraid to use them if they are completely black! They will make for a delicious cookie. If you are in need of cookies, but your bananas aren’t quite ripe enough yet, you can ripen them quickly in the oven.
I prefer semi sweet chocolate chips. To me, it pairs perfectly with the sweetness of the banana cookie, but feel free to substitute it for milk chocolate chips if you must.
Not a huge fan of frosting? You can skip this step if you like, but you will be missing out on a delicious banana butter cream frosting and I can’t think of any good reason to ever do that!
There’s a debate raging at our house about the best way to server these cookies. Half my family prefers them at room temperature. The other half(myself included) thinks they are best served cold. Try and both and decide for yourself!
