I hate wasting food. My husband always asks for bananas and while he eats most of the ones I buy, every now and then one gets too soft and mushy for anyone to want to eat. They actually say that the more brown the peel, the better the banana is for you, but I just can't get myself to eat one this way. To save myself from eating that brown, mushy banana, I give you Banana Almond Butter Cookies.
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 small banana, mashed
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tsp butter
1/4 cup almond butter
1tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 375. Combine flour and baking soda in one bowl. In another bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together mashed banana, brown sugar, butter, and almond butter until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla. Then gradually beat in flour and soda mixture until it begins to form a dough.
Next shape dough into little balls and place on baking sheet. Using a fork, press crisscross patterns into each cookie. Then pop cookies in oven and bake for about ten minutes or until slightly browned.
Let cool and enjoy. They taste like little banana bread bites.
So good and we didn't waste that brown mushy banana.
