Vegan cookies once again! This recipe was made somewhat by accident. A lot of peanut butter was given to me one day and I wanted to use it up. I searched for a peanut butter cookie recipe and stumbled across something I could create. I did not expect them to be that good but they ended up turning out to be fantastic!!
Try to use a ripe to very ripe banana (yellow or yellow with brown flecks) so the cookies will taste sweeter. If you make a batch of this cookie dough and keep in the fridge, the banana will keep gaining ripeness and turn the dough sweeter. So a win-win! Overall, they are great vegan cookies that don’t use any oil.
Yields about 10-14 (depending on cookie size)
1 cup peanut butter (or nut butter)
1 ripe banana, mashed
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 TB vanilla (or water)
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the peanut butter, banana, and sugar. Add in the flours, then vanilla. It may be tough to mix together but keep working at it. Bake cookies for 15 minutes, if you like really soft cookies bake 10 minutes.
*Notes: If the cookies need more moisture or want more banana flavor, you could use 2 mashed bananas. Also, if you do not like whole wheat flour, use all regular flour.
