1 stick unsalted butter, at room temp
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar and ½ tsp cinnamon, for dusting


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mash 2 ripened bananas.
Add butter, peanut butter, both sugars, egg, vanilla and stir.
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!)
Add mini chocolate chips and briefly stir.
Drop by large spoonful onto parchment lined baking sheet.
In a small bowl, pour 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and stir. Sprinkle over unbaked cookies.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until slightly golden brown. My oven is hot, and only needs 10 minutes.

I've tried this recipe, it's fool proof and absolutely AMAZING. In fact, I think I have to make then again this weekend because now I'm drooling at work.

Haley Porter's picture do you explain such a glorious taste in your mouth?...Moist, chewy, soft, and buttery come to mind. The perfect mix of every ingredient. It's just a cookie you say? I say, its THE cookie. Siriously Delicious!

These make me want to swear, because they are so f*$&n good!



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!
