Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are bananas!

For real!….these cookies are seriously DELICIOUS.

(And before I forget…make sure you check out the video at the bottom and listen until the very end-it’s pretty bananas as well!)

Now I am not one to mess with something that is already quite delicious (take chocolate chip cookies for example), but one day I had this crazy idea. I always put a package of instant vanilla pudding in my chocolate chip cookies…but what IF…what if I added banana cream pudding instead?

Oh boy.

It was a perpetual battle to stay out of the dough bowl. Thank heavens Julianna arrived before I whipped up these little guys-because not sneaking bites from this bowl of dough would have made me rather sad. Bad habit, I know.

Do you remember these? Can you just imagine an egg-free version of this dough packed on top of a chocolatey brownie. Stop it

The banana flavor in these cookies is so….banana-y I almost can’t stand it…in a good way! Actually, it would probably be better if I really couldn’t stand these cookies at all, because I could see them becoming quite problematic in our house, problematic for my waistline!

Oh, and definitely would pair nicely with an icy cold glass of milk.


I’m telling you-these are an awesome change-up for a rather classic cookie!
