Bananas and peanut butter, yum! What a delicious combination. One of my favorite snacks is a frozen banana dipped in peanut butter. I decided to get a little creative yesterday and made a cookie out of one of my favorite flavor combinations. Not knowing how they’d turn out, I gave it a try, and I was pleasantly surprised.
I came up with a really simple recipe using ingredients I had on hand. I had used up all of my flour, so these yummy cookies are flourless. Even without the flour, they turned out great. They were nice and chewy with a little crisp around the edges. They’re also fairly healthy, so feel free to have one for breakfast! I must warn you though, it’s very hard to stop at just one.
1 c. Creamy Peanut Butter (I used organic, no sugar added)
1 over ripe banana (mashed)
1/2 c. Organic Cane Sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinammon
1/2 c. chocolate chips
preheat oven to 350°
Combine all ingredients, mix well. Cool in refrigerator (not necessary, but becomes a little easier to work with). Dough will be very sticky! Place Tbs. sized balls on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes. Let cool. Enjoy!
