Two (2) over-ripe bananas, mashed -- these cookies turned out to be very banana-y so if you're unsure about that, just use one banana
One (1) heaping cup of all-purpose flour
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
Three (3) tablespoons of peanut butter, melted and cooled -- I originally wanted to use creamy PB, but I accidentally bought crunchy, which turned out to be the greatest mistake of all time because it was perfect
Four (4) tablespoons of butter, melted and cooled
One (1) teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 egg yolk -- I know this is weird, but it works out perfectly. If you use only one banana, throw in the entire yolk.
Large handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
Mix all dry ingredients (flour, white & brown sugar, baking powder, salt) in a large mixing bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix mashed bananas, melted peanut butter, melted butter, vanilla extract and egg yolk in a smaller mixing bowl.
Slowly pour and mix wet ingredients into the dry ingredients to form a dough.
Add chocolate chips and fold them into the dough.
Put the dough in the fridge for about five minutes to firm up.
When you remove the dough from the fridge, use your hands or a spoon to form the cookie and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove, let cool, and enjoy!
