I used semi-sweet chocolate chips and coarsely chopped sea salt peanuts (for that salty-sweet combo). Baked at 350*, my cookies were just right at just under eleven minutes. These cookies look like something you'd see on the front of a cooking magazine, they turned out very pretty! Holy cow, these cookies are addictive. My husband did not try them but the kids and I can't get enough. These are AWESOME.



I absolutely loved this recipe. I made it excately to the specifications and the cookies turned out beautiful. Feed them to my son's pre k class and they polished them off.



Starting to think about Christmas cookies. Instead of the traditional chocolate chip cookies, I thought I'd give this recipe a trial run to see if it could be a replacement. I'm glad I did because the consensus was "...WOW, these are really good." You bite into a big glob of gooey dark chocolate, and the banana and peanut butter flavors are perfect complements to that chocolate chunk. Followed the recipe to the letter, wouldn't change a thing, and this definitely will be included in 2012's Holiday cookie baking.
