  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 6 tablespoons light brown sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 very ripe banana, slightly mashed

  • ¾ cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter or line 2 baking sheets.

  2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

  3. In a large bowl, beat together butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla. Add the flour mixture and stir to combine. Mix in the banana and chocolate chips until just combined.
