These cookies…are incredible. And incredibly soft. And contain an incredible combination – peanut butter + bananas + chocolate.
Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Recipe from How Sweet It Is)
1 cup + 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
1 cup + 1 teaspoon whole wheat pastry flour (or you can just do all all-purpose flour)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted and cooled
6 tablespoons of creamy peanut butter, melted and cooled
1 cup loosely packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg yolk, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 ripe medium bananas, mashed
1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Prepare the butter and the peanut butter by measuring them melting them in the microwave – so that you can get it in the fridge and cooling.
Mix the flours, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside. In another large bowl, whisk together cooled butter and cooled peanut butter with both sugars until combined. Whisk in egg yolk and vanilla extract until smooth. Add in the mashed banana and mix until combined – mixture will not be smooth. Gradually add in the dry ingredients and fold in chocolate chips.
We made our cookie into ice cream sandwiches – they were amazing!!!
