My Faves: Nutella Banana Cookies

Last year, during Hurricane Sandy, I was stuck inside my Hoboken apartment for quite some time. Lucky to have the company of Anthony and a couple of friends, we spent a lot of that time cooking any and all the items in our fridge and freezer before they went bad. This led to some pretty weird meals - like leftover chili with a side of pork dumplings - but we did bake a few delicious treats along the way.

Our favorite were these Nutella Banana Cookies off a wonderful blog called Chef in Training. We happened to have two bananas and some eggs that needed to go ASAP so it was PERFECT.

When you're not stuck in a hurricane, these cookies only require you to go out and buy nine ingredients, making it both inexpensive and easy.

Happy baking!

Nutella Banana Cookies


  • 1 1/2 Cups of Flour
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt
  • 3/4 Cup Shortening
  • 2 Large Mashed Ripe Bananas
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 3/4 Cups Oats
  • 1/4 Cup Nutella
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  2. Sift flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl
  3. Cut in shortening
  4. Beat in mashed ripe bananas and egg
  5. Mix in oats
  6. Take a knife and 'slice' Nutella into batter with a knife. Don't mix it in completely, the stripes are what makes them pretty!
  7. Spoon 'drops' onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 8-10 minutes (Note: this is a lot softer than normal cookie dough and will not form balls, hence spoon 'drops')
