Day 7 of my 12 days of cookies: Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies. Bananas are a great tool in baking. They hold desserts together, lock in moisture, add a touch of sweetness, and guarantee a soft and chewy texture.
Last time I used bananas in a cookie, I was into making vegan desserts. I was using the banana to replace eggs in a chocolate chip cookie. Can you believe that post was five years ago?! I was taking pictures at night in my dark lit kitchen on a paper plate. Luckily, we’ve progressed a bit since then. I’ve added some real plates to my kitchen cabinets.
This cookie is extremely soft. It’s also very sweet. With all the sugar, banana, and peanut butter, it’s bound to be. I would cut down on the sugar the next time I made these. Also, the more ripe the bananas are, the sweeter the cookie is going to be.
These cookies need quite a bit of time to set. Let them sit out for a while before doing anything with them, as they’re fragile when they’re warm.
From How Sweet It is and makes about 18-20 cookies.
