I served these at my Super Bowl party, and they were a huge hit. One of the parents at the party, tackled a 5 year old before he could eat the last one. Try these. Right now !! Right now. Oh they are good aren’t they.

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!
