Banana cream pie lovers- you've got to try these banana cookies!Banana Cream Cookies really do have the best flavor! My husband loves banana cream pies.

Especially if it would be an easy way to satisfy his craving and my love of cookies – which it totally did! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Tips to get the PERFECT Banana Cookies:

Three kitchen items make these cookies come together really fast. I actually use these items in nearly every cookie recipe I make, so they’re quite versatile. First, I line my cookie sheets with a piece of parchment paper. They’re sold in sizes that fit a 12×16 cookie sheet perfectly and enable to cookies to bake well without sticking- and no mess from spraying oil on the cookie sheets!

The second item is a KitchenAid mixer. I love mine! I have a Bosch as well but I find I use my KitchenAid for cookies. There is a cookie paddle that comes with every mixer that you attach to the top of the mixer. They’re easy to use and help you mix the ingredients uniformly. I also use the metal whisk attachment in this recipe to make the frosting. It whips it up super fast! Add this to your wish list because it’s one of my all-time used small appliances ever!

MY LATEST RECIPES

The third item is a cookie scoop! Years and years ago I used to use 2 spoons to measure and scrape cookie dough onto the pans. It wasn’t a perfect process and I often ended up with oblong cookies in various sizes. A friend of mine brought cookies to a party and I noticed each and every one of her cookies looked PERFECT. Her secret? A cookie scoop! They come in three sizes- 1/2 tablespoon, 1.5 tablespoon and 3 tablespoon scoops. I used the middle size- 1.5 tablespoon for these, and most other cookies. (Although when I’m serving a large crowd, I use the small cookie scoop. People love having a smaller cookie, especially at an event with several other desserts. For this Banana Cookie recipe, I used the middle scoop.

  1. These were a huge hit with my family! I added caramel bits in addition to the white chocolate chips. Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Hmmm… they were thick?? I’d double check the ingredients and make sure you added correct amounts. Make sure you add 1/2 cup of butter- the entire cube. 😉 I’m glad you still enjoyed them though!

  2. These banana cookies are AMAZING. I made only one batch and had to back to the grocery store for more pudding in order to make more.

  3. I’m sorry to be a ‘nit-picker’ but this peeve is really getting to me….. many of these recipe blogs are so loaded with ads that it’s not only difficult to wander around, but impossible to print without also printing an unwanted ad that has ‘conveniently’ stuck it’s nose into the middle of the recipe. Some advertisers remove their ad from the printed form but still leave an empty space where their ad used to be. This means, when you print the recipe, your printer is squirting two sheets of paper (instead of one), with empty spaces where their ad used to be. I, like many others, am so fed up with intrusive internet advertising. I do understand it might be necessary to some but, am I the only one who thinks it’s a bit above & beyond to have it appear in the middle of a printed recipe?

    • I’m SO sorry! The thing is, when you have a website there are about 12,364 moving pieces. Plus you know the whole 5 kids and a husband thing that demand my time. HA! I recently had to switch providers for my printable recipe card… and need to contact a different company to get the ads removed from it. YES, I agree it’s so annoying! Let me move this to the top of my list and see if I can’t get it taken care of ASAP.

  4. Just made these cookies…..they are absolutely delicious! Made them a little smaller then shown in the picture……will definitely make these again!

  5. Making 12 dozen for a cookie exchange, first batch was turning out very round, just smushed down with a fork and let bake a few more mins? Why😩😩😩

    • Did you do a 3 or 4 times the recipe to make this many? Sometimes when you triple or quadruple a recipe, it just doesn’t work out! It takes a lot to mix that much dough and the recipe changes as a result. I’m sad they didn’t turn out for you. 🙁

  6. Just made these and they didn’t come out flat like yours. I checked, and used all the ingredients as stated. What could be wrong? They did taste great but would love to get them right.

  7. I just made these absolutely delicious cookies. They are wonderful! I was looking for a cookie that I could add peanut butter chips to without losing the banana flavor. These are exactly right for that. They carry the banana flavor and the chips carry the peanut butter flavor. I made them for an Elvis rock and roll party and the fans gobbled them up, all 240 of them. Thank you for taking the time to post this recipe.

    • I’m SO glad that everyone enjoyed them! Adding peanut butter chips is a great idea- I might just have to post a follow up recipe! THank you for your kind words Jeff!
