- 2 c flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ½ c maple syrup
- ¼ c brown sugar
- 1 mashed ripe banana
- ¾ c peanut butter (Maranatha is the BEST)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Mix wet and dry ingredients in separate containers. Combine and mix until just blended. Don't over mix as this affects the proteins in the flour and can make the cookies overly chewy. Make balls of dough approx. 1 inch diameter and place on a lightly greased or non-stick cookie sheet. Silicon sheets work great! Make little fork marks in them and add toppings, if you'd like. Bake at 350F until lightly browned on the edges. I don't like to list bake times because ovens are so varied, but check them after 7 minutes or so.
Try these tasty adornments:
add chocolate chips, the texture of these cookies is perfect for them!
or drizzle chocolate on top after the cookies have cooled
roll the balls of dough in sugar
put some shredded coconut on top
These went fast, especially the coconut ones!!! Enjoy.
