Chocolate Chili Banana Cookies are very easy to make and they will amaze everyone at the very first bite. When you see the title, you might think that I’ve made a mistake. No I didn’t mean chocolate chip cookies; these cookies really contain chili on their top and this makes my cookies unique. The sweet banana flavor is complemented with a melted chocolate topping. The sweetness stands out more with the hot chili on the top, but be careful with the amount. You should be feeling a slightly hot flavor coming behind the sweetness of banana and chocolate.
These banana cookies are not too sweet, so the chocolate topping is a nice addition. Also these are chewy kind of cookies that you can enjoy with your coffee.
These could have been simple cookies flavored with banana, but I wanted to make something really different. You know there are millions of cookie recipes around the web and sometimes you feel that most of them have a similar taste. These Chocolate Chili Banana Cookies are not even close to the cookies you already know.
This is a perfect cookie recipe that you can use up the ripe bananas in your kitchen. You need 1 cup mashed bananas for this recipe. If you have more bananas than this and if you don’t want to waste them then you can try my yummy Marbled Banana Bread with a chocolate ganache.
Chocolate Chili Banana Cookies are not kid friendly this way. You can just leave out the chili topping and replace them with ground peppermint candies. Both versions will definitely be the winner of any party and everyone will be asking for the recipe.
