Lola’s Kitchen is a feature on Lola’s Reviews where I talk about all things related to food, cooking and baking. These posts can be recipe posts, tens list posts about food or recipes or more discussion type posts about food. I love cooking and spend some time in the kitchen almost every day, so I wanted to give it a place on my blog as well. The banner for this feature is designed by Michelle from Limabean Designs.
One day on Pinterest I stumbled upon a recipe for banana snickerdoodles and I was immediately sold on the idea. This sounded like a great combination of flavors, I still had some banana’s lying around and later that week I gave them a try. They turned out delicious. If like like banana and snickerdoodles I definitely recommend these. They have a strong banana flavor and the cinnamon coating really adds to the flavor.
This recipe is based on E2 Bakes Brooklyn’s Banana Snickerdoodles recipe
For the cookies
- Banana’s – 2
- Flour – 375 gram/ 3 cups
- Sugar – 1 cup/ 200 gram
- Butter – 226 gram/ 1 cup/ 2 sticks
- Cinnamon – 2 teaspoons
- Vanilla extract – 2 teaspoons
- Salt – 1/2 teaspoon
- Baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon
- Baking soda – 1 teaspoon
Use (over)ripe banana’s for these if possible.
For the coating
- Cinnamon – 1 1/2 teaspoon
- Sugar – 50 gram/ 1/4 cup
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit/ 180 degrees Celsius.
- First melt the butter for 30 seconds in the microwave. Combine the butter with the sugar in a big bowl. Mix until fluffy and well combined.
- Then mash the banana’s with a fork. Add the banana mash and vanilla extract and mix for another minute or so.
- Add the dry ingredients, flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and mix until well combined.
- Put the dough in the fridge for a little while, as long as 10 minutes works, but if you have more time you can leave it in longer.
- Now prepare the coating. Mix the cinnamon with the sugar.
- Get the dough out of the fridge and roll balls form the dough, then roll them through the coating and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. I made four rows of four. Then bake for about 10 minutes. Repeat until all cookies are baked.
- Let the cookies cool down for a bit and then you can eat them.
