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!

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This is a distinctive cookie and the result is quite enjoyable. The texture is more like that of a blondie, just in a cookie shape. I followed the recipe and instructions exactly and enjoyed the final product. This recipe is deceiving in that it seems simply (due to the few ingredients), but is actually hard to do correctly, because the dough is very dry. If the chef over mixes, the glutens will become tough and ruin the cookie.

These were an interesting change of pace--not exactly cookie consistency, but still delicious. A great way to use up leftover bananas. I used two bananas, 1/2 c of chocolate chips and natural pb to make mine. I agree with another reviewer to flatten the cookies before you bake them. I will make them again.

These cookies were an instant favorite the first time I made them and they are a "hit" everytime. The only thing I would suggest is to flatten them slightly before baking. The dough freezes well and I often mix up a double batch and freeze half.
