In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
Add dry ingredients to banana mixture and stir until combined (do not stir this to death!)

After tasting your banana bread, I can't imagine how delicious these cookies will be. So excited to make them!!

A fantastic snack to come too after a long day of work....if you can't have Siri in your kitchen cooking, the next best thing is modestly duplicating her recipes...5 stars!

absolutely delicious. it took a lot of restraint not to devour all of the dough. now we know that peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip muffins, and banana bread combined equal magnificence. making them again soon! like tomorrow.

OMG! Absolutely, positively, the best cookie you will ever eat! I barely had enough dough left to cook, cause I couldn't stop eating the dough. My husband had to stop me, and I am glad he did, because the end result was definetely worth waiting for. Rich, creamy, and moist, the best of all possible ingredients in one delicious cookie!



I've come to the conclusion that I buy bananas and purposely neglect them. Why? Because then I have no choice but to turn them into bread or muffins. However, on a particular day in January of Twenty-Ten, I looked at my neglected bananas and wanted cookies. And peanut butter. Chocolate. So I came up with my Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Banana Cookies. Don't you just love long titles?

I don't mean to toot my own horn, but okay fine I will. THEY ARE EXCELLENT! Ridiculous. The texture is a cross between cookie/cake/bread/muffin, if that makes sense. Salty peanut butter, a hint of cinnamon, the sweet crunch of chocolate, and of course the banana. My inspiration. Oh neglected bananas, thank you thank you!
