These Peanut Butter Banana Cookies take the concept of combining peanut butter and banana to a whole new level. Rich banana bread-like cookies are chock full of peanut butter chips then drizzled with dark chocolate - oh mercy!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, silpat or spray with nonstick spray.
In a large bowl of electric mixer, cream butter and sugar together until creamy, about 4 minutes.
Add egg and vanilla extract and beat until well mixed. Add in mashed bananas and continue beating until well incorporated.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and salt. Turn mixer to low speed and add dry mixture gradually to banana mixture until completely combined.
Stir in peanut butter chips.
Using a medium cookie scoop, drop batter onto prepared cookie sheet leaving about 2" in-between. You should get 12 per cookie sheet.
Bake in oven for 8-9 minutes or until bottom is brown and cookies look set.
Remove from oven and let sit on cookie sheets for 2-3 minutes then remove with spatula to wire racks to cool completely.
Once cool, place waxed paper under cookies and prepare chocolate.
Pour chocolate chips into a microwave safe measuring cup or bowl, Heat in microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in-between, until chocolate has melted. Using a fork, drizzle chocolate over cookies. You can also use a small baggie and cut a small hole in one corner and squeeze over cookies.
