What’s better than banana bread? Banana bread cookies of course! These cookies are soft, sweet, and could be served as breakfast or dessert!


  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TBSP maple syrup
  • 1 TSP each: cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg
  • 1 TSP vanilla extract
  • 1/4 TSP baking soda
  • 1/4 TSP salt
  • Optional – Melted chocolate chips for drizzling


  1. First, line a baking sheet with some parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Add the flour, baking soda, and spices to a large bowl and whisk to combine. Set this bowl to the side.
  3. Add three ripe bananas to a medium sized bowl and mash with a fork or a potato masher. After you’ve mashed the bananas, add the egg, maple syrup, and vanilla extract to the bowl and stir well to combine.
  4. Pour the mashed banana mixture into the flour mixture and, with a rubber spatula, combine until evenly incorporated.
  5. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out the banana bread cookies onto your prepared baking sheet. I used a 1.5 TBSP cookie scoop to make these banana cookies!
  6. Bake for 26-30 minutes (or until the middle of your cookie is no longer super wet). Allow the cookies to come to room temperature before eating and enjoy!
