    Just wanted to say thank you for sharing! I love receiving new recipes to try. Definitely going to try this one!

  2. Gloria says:

    How would you store banana chocolate chip cookies since it contains fruit. How long can you keep them.

  3. Cyd says:

    They are fine left out for the day. But you could put them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge if you think they will stick around longer than that.

  4. Jeri says:

    Which butter do you use salted or unsalted?

  5. Debi hunt says:

    No eggs?

  6. Cyd says:

    That's right! No eggs in these Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies. You might also like our Best Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are one of our favorites. Here is the link

  7. Cyd says:

    We have made these Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies with both Salted and Unsalted Butter. If you use salted butter, you could leave out the extra salt if you are trying to cut back.

  8. Courtney says:

    These are absolutely amazing!

  9. Hailey says:

    I am very excited to try out this recipe

  10. Lori says:

    What size should I roll the balls into before baking? Some recipes say "golf ball size" but I don't want to follow that rule of thumb with these if that's way off 😅. Excited to use my bananas for something other than banana bread!

  11. Hannah says:

    Can you taste the banana in these cookies? That’s the only thinking I’m worried about lol

  12. Saudia says:

    I cant wait to make these! Just one question, how many cookies does this recipe make?

  13. Cyd says:

    This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies. It really depends on how big you make each cookie.

  14. Cyd says:

    You can taste the banana but it isn't overpowering. It's the perfect blend of flavors.

  15. Cyd says:

    These are probably closer to 1-1 1/2 inch balls.

  16. Melissa Rich says:

    How long can I chill the dough in the refrigerator? I made the dough two days ago and it's been in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Still okay to bake?

  17. Cyd says:

    It should be fine to bake. The dough may darken because of the bananas. But the flavor should be fine.

  18. Shay says:

    These are amazing! I made a batch last night & they're so good the next day too!

  19. Shay says:

    I actually did 1/2 the batch with regular milk chocolate chips, and the other 1/2 I used white chocolate chips. I think white chocolate are my favorite.

  20. Sam says:

    Can you freeze the dough?

  21. Marion says:

    I used semisweet choc chips. I also made large cookies, about 20 total. Need to press dough together to form balls. Baked 15 minutes. Perfect.

  22. Cyd says:

    The dough won't freeze very well with the bananas. They will definitely go dark.

  23. Michelle H says:

    These did not turn out the way they were supposed to. They were puffy like biscuits

  24. Sarah says:

    Cookies were great but didnt hold their shape well. We added red and green M&Ms for Christmas.

  25. Lisa says:

    I made these and they are delish!!! Any idea on calorie count per cookie?

  26. Momma Cyd says:

    Hi Lisa. We are slowly getting all of the nutritional info on our recipes. I made a note and hopefully it will be done tomorrow. :)

  27. Pat says:

    These were great! Gone in one night! My family loved them. Great use for ripe bananas but didn't taste too much banana, which was great.

  28. Maeghan says:

    These were SO good! Like pillowy soft right out of the oven. I followed the recipe exactly, except replaced the sugars with 1/2 cup of coconut sugar. The only think I was a bit dissapointed with was that they didn't flatten out. They stayed in little mounds. But I was amazed with how soft and and delicious they are. Definitely will make again.
