Banana Drop Cookies: Pinterest Review

Recipe found on Pinterest

Scrolling through Pinterest can be a dangerous thing. The other day I was scrolling for sugar free recipes that I can make for my husband. He has to watch his sugar intake but we like our sweets. Please note: this is NOT a sugar free recipe that I am sharing.

Anyways, I found this recipe and had some bananas that were ready for baking. I was really hopeful when I saw these lovelies baking away. I mean they look and smell great but when I bit into my first one......I was highly disappointed. They are not the consistency of a cookie but more like a muffin and they have no real taste to them even though they have banana and cinnamon in it.

I had some left over mix so I took that and put it into a cupcake tin. They made some pretty good muffins. I guess I can have those for breakfast. I'm including the recipe as found on Pinterest if you want to give it a try.

Banana Drop Cookies
  • 1 Cup Bananas 
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon (I only used 1 tsp)
  • 2 1/4 Cup Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 2/3 Cups Butter
In a small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and 1/2 tsp cinnamon (I used 1 tsp) and set aside. In a separate bowl, Cream sugar, butter, and vanilla until light and fluffy using the paddle attachment of a mixing bowl. Add eggs and beat well. Stir in banana. Slowly mix dry ingredients into wet. Chill 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drop teaspoon sized balls, 2 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet (I used parchment paper instead of a greased pan). Bake 8-10 minutes or until browned (I baked for 8 minutes but it will depend on your oven). Cool 2 minutes.

If you try these, please let us know how it went in the comments below. We'd like to see how you did and what you think.
