From the kitchen of:

This recipe was on a bag of too-ripe bananas I bought when I first moved to Raleigh.


1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 ripe banana, mashed

1/3 c. firmly packed light brown sugar

1/4 c. margarine

1/4 c. peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)

1 large egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 375°.

Spray baking sheets with vegetable cooking spray.

Combine flour and baking soda in a small bowl.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat together banana, brown sugar, margarine, and peanut butter until light and fluffy.

Beat in egg and vanilla.

Gradually beat flour mixture into the wet mixture until a dough forms.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls, placing them 2 inches apart on the baking sheets.

Using the tines of a fork dipped in flour, press a crisscross pattern onto each cookie.

Bake cookies in batches until edges are set, about 10 minutes.

Place baking sheets on wire racks and cool for about 5 minutes.


Makes about 45 cookies.
