We've all been there. Wondering why you bought bananas just to let them rippen up to the point of almost rotting. It's unfortunate but we all do it.
Well here's my inspirational quote of the day.
When life hands you rotten bananas, make banana bread.
Or in this case banana cookies. Either is delicious but people get tired of good old banana bread pretty quickly. So these mix it up a bit.
These cookies are not as cakey as the usual recipes you see for banana or pumpkin cookies. They have a bit of a chewy texture to them and are more flat like a usual chocolate chip cookie.
Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

- 2 1/3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 3 egg whites
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/2 cup mashed banana (1 banana)
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg whites, mashed banana, and both extracts. Stir in flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix in chocolate chips until completely distributed.

Cool and enjoy!
