Cost: 10


  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup (100g) packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 medium overripe banana , mashed
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¾ cups (217g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (173g) mini chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Cream butter and both sugars with an electric mixer (use a paddle attachment if using a stand mixer).
  • Mix in banana, egg yolk, vanilla salt, and baking soda. Add flour and mix until smooth. Stir in mini chocolate chips.
  • Scoop 2 tablespoon size balls of cookie dough onto prepared cookie sheets, spacing 2-inches apart. Bake for 13-16 minutes, or until the tops have lost their glossy sheen and the edges are golden.
  • Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheets before removing. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.



  • These are great plain or with nuts or toffee bits in place of chocolate chips.
