Chewy Banana Cookies
2-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. packed dark brown sugar
1 c. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
2 VERY ripe bananas
2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/4 c. creamy peanut butter
Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
Add eggs and vanilla and mix to combine.
Add bananas and mix to break them up and combine the batter. It will look kinda gross.
Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. and add to batter, mixing till combined.
Fold in chocolate chips. Much prettier now.
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 9-10 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through cooking.
Voila! Now, you can stop here OR you can do as I do and...
Tuck a sandwich size baggie in a coffee cup... stick with me it will make sense in a minute.
Melt peanut butter in the microwave (it will take maybe 30 seconds) and pour into the bag in the mug... do you see where I'm going with this?
Pull out your neatly filled bag (thank you for your service mug) and snip off the tiniest amount of the corner. I mean tiny. Seriously. There will be peanut butter EVERYWHERE!
Now squeeze the melted peanut butter onto your cookies. Do any design you like. I am un-original so I did zigzags. Finito!
