Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ cup sugar
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment paper or baking mat.
  • In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, corn starch, and salt.
  • In a large bowl cream together butter and sugars for 3 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Mix in egg, vanilla, mashed bananas and sour cream.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough onto prepared baking sheet at least 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes. Cool on wire racks. Serve, or store in airtight container up to 5 days.

Notes

Chocolate chips: I like to use semisweet, but you can also use milk chocolate, or a combination of both. 
Pro Tip: For the prettiest cookies, I like to reserve about 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips and gently press them into the tops of the cookie dough mounds before baking. 
Add cinnamon: Add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon to the dry ingredients for a fun and festive flavor. 
For the sour cream: For best results, use full-fat sour cream or Greek yogurt.
