Banana Pie Cookies

In need of a portable banana cream pie, I created this recipe. While the cookies didn't turn out as thick as I had hoped, they accomplished their task of turning a plate and fork dessert into something that can travel. The white chocolate chips are a good stand-in for the whipped cream. The vanilla wafers add a nice crunch, so don't crush them too much.
1/2 stick butter
1 small banana, mashed
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
12 crumbled vanilla wafers
1/3 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, combine flour and baking powder.
Cream butter and banana together until combine thoroughly. Mix in sugar. Beat in egg.
Add flour mixture.
Stir in crumbled wafers and white chocolate chips.
Scoop tablespoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets. Bake until lightly golden for about 12 minutes.
Yields 1 dozen cookies.


  1. Looks great. You have some of the best banana recipes :)

  2. I made these without the wafers and have found that your recipe would make amazing pancakes! I'm gluten free so I used a gluten free flour mix and almond meal. I added more meal to get them a bit thicker and it seems to have the done the trick for puffy cookies. Seriously delicious! Thank you.
