Description

These cookies have all the flavors I love from the ice cream pint, but the flavors are bundled up into a soft chewy cookie. The banana flavor cookie base is perfectly complimented by crunchy walnuts and perfect chocolate chunks. My Chunky Monkey Cookies are just begging to be dunked in a cold glass of your favorite milk/milk alternative. Insert heart eyes emoji here! I have never had a more comforting cookie.

Ingredients

  • 2-¼ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1-½ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 sticks Unsalted Butter
  • ½ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 1  Egg
  • 1-½  Bananas, Mashed
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1-½ cup Semi-sweet Chocolate Chunks
  • 1 cup Chopped Walnuts

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375ºF.

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and whisk together gently.

In a separate bowl, cream butter and both sugars. I use a stand mixer for this step—you can also use a hand mixer! Beat butter and sugar together until nice and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg, mashed banana, and vanilla to the butter and sugar mixture and mix until well combined. The mixture might look a little soupy—that is fine, the flour will bring it together into a thicker cookie dough.

Add flour mixture 1 cup at a time. Mix until just combined; do not over-mix or you will end up with tough cookies!

Once all the flour is mixed in, add chocolate chunks and chopped walnuts. Again, mix until just combined.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease with butter. Scoop cookie dough onto the baking sheet using a tablespoon.

Bake for 9 to 12 minutes. The cookies should be golden brown but still soft in the center when done. If they are not done after 12 minutes, continue to bake for an additional 2 minutes and check again.

Let cool on a wire rack and enjoy when cool!
