So mulling things over in my head and trying to figure out what I wanted to make my husband says "Hey peanut butter banana cookies." I thought maybe he was having a stroke, but no he was just reading the side of the banana bag.
Sidebar: For purposes of saving money when I can I LOVE to purchase the big bags of "ripe" bananas from the produce section. As luck would have it Lowes had organic bananas for $0.39 a lb (for $2.00 I got two of these large bags, one of which is currently in my freezer).
This is the side of the bag:
1 1/2 C all purpose unbleached flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 small banana (1/2 C)
1/3 C firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 C Earth Balance (softened)
1/4 C Organic smooth peanut butter (you can use crunchy...but I didn't have any handy)
1 tsp vanilla
* for egg substitutes you can use a flax egg (directions here) or you can also take a tablespoon of silken tofu, whipped by hand.
Add all of the ingredients to a bowl
For now though this is tasty and healthy little snack for anyone ages 1-100 (can't give peanut butter to children under 1).
