Yes, yes, I know. I'm doing loads of cookies. But it's worth it! Anyway, these cookies are officially called Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cookies. But who wants to say all that when they can just say Blaze Cookies? Or, better yet, just eat them?
It is a lovely blend of fruit, protein, and blissful chocolate and sugar. I have an incredibly healthy sweet tooth. I can only take full pleasure in cookies if I know what went into them (and how healthy they are!). So, indeed, these meet my standards. I was a bit hesitant at first to make them, because, well, have you ever tried a cookie like this?! But in the end, my baking sense won over.
So here is the recipe:
  • 6 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 ripe banana (see instructions below)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup grated chocolate (or chocolate curls. Chocolate chips would work fine, too)
To prepare the banana: slice the banana in half the long way, then cut into smaller pieces. Transfer to a bowl, then mash slightly with a fork. Refrigerate.
To prepare the cookies: cream the butter and sugar. Add egg, and blend till creamy. Mix in peanut butter and again stir till thick and creamy. Carefully fold in the bananas, then the flour, mixing well, but be careful not to crush the banana chunks. Fold in the chocolate, and bake in a 175 preheated oven for 17-20 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
Question of the Week:
What is your favorite combination of food?
I've always enjoyed peppermint and chocolate-when it's pure. Oh, and chocolate and peaches, strawberries, marshmallows... the list goes on and on!
And:
If you could name a cookie, what would the name be? Think creative! I've wanted to name something or someone Blaze, so that's why this has the Blaze Cookies name. Even though they aren't on fire!

    I have loved doing crafts, cooking, and writing all my life. Ever since I was a little girl, I have had great joy helping make cookies (though I probably was more of a bother than a help!) and I loved putting my heart into drawings that only I could understand.  That is, until I would run off and do something else! Though I do not know you, and probably never will, I hope with all my heart that you will grow in your joy of creating items with your hands and heart.
