Delighting the Sweet Tooth and the Conscience
I have a sweet tooth. Always have. Always will. I'd reach for dessert over dinner any day of the week. And I'm usually game to test out a new, interesting looking recipe assuming I have the ingredients and the time.
So I was thrilled to come across this recipe for Peanut Butter and Banana Chocolate Chunk Cookies in Babble's Family Kitchen. Not only was it super easy (only 10 ingredients and I omitted one of them) but it was finished and ready in no time at all.
I used soy nut butter instead of peanut butter and left out the shredded coconut. I'm happy that these cookies don't call for flour, sugar, butter or eggs. Not that there's anything wrong with those... but it made sampling the batter a guilt-free experience. And anything that's made with mashed bananas is good in my opinion. Best part: RAVE reviews from the kids. Yay! I used Ghiradelli large chocolate chips in this recipe and when my 2 year old saw them fresh from the oven he exclaimed, "Mommy! Wow. I like that chocolate because I like it!"
So thanks, once again to Babble for supplying our house with tasty ideas that are easy to execute.
