When one gets a craving for chocolate, it's usually the magnesium one is craving. Magnesium is found in chocolate, nuts, and bananas, and these cookies are chock-full of all three!
INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):
- 1/2 cup mashed banana
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, stir together the mashed banana and peanut butter until well blended. Stir in the brown sugar, white sugar and vanilla until smooth. Combine the flour and baking powder; add to the peanut butter mixture and mix well. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. Cover and chill dough for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Roll dough into walnut sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
