stomatology Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookies” />
There’s nothing better than a really good cookie. Usually when I want one I make Chocolate Chip. Because I love a classic cookie with bits of melty bittersweet chocolate, hepatitis crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside. It’s the kind of thing that makes the world a better place and exactly what I wanted Sunday afternoon. So I raided the fridge and pantry to see if I had everything I needed. I didn’t.
After a few minutes of internet searching, stuff I found Smitten Kitchen’s Peanut Butter Cookies and – score! – I had almost all of the ingredients. The only thing I was missing was peanut butter chips. I was just going to use more chocolate chips, but then I spotted some dried banana chips in the pantry. Banana, peanut butter and chocolate can never be wrong together. I knew these would be good. Really good. Classic Chocolate Chip Cookie good.
And they were! The banana chips gave the cookies a slight crunch and subtle banana flavor. Not the overpowering taste of ripe bananas you get with banana bread, but even better with the crunchy/salty peanut butter. And of course, chocolate chips make everything better. These have got to be some of my favorite cookies of all time. I know they’ll be the ones I bring to the beach this summer. If you love peanut butter and banana, this is the cookie for you. I froze half the batter and am so glad I did. Otherwise I’d have to go buy some bigger pants.
