Chocolate Peanut Butter And Banana Cookies

Did some midnight baking and ended up with these wonderful two bite cookies. I found this quick and simple recipe from a Hershey Chipts home tested recipe book. I found the cookies something new for me to try for myself.

These tasty treats have a really unique flavor and aroma.The flavor is mixture of rich peanut butter, sweet chocolate and the mild sweet fruit of banana. The cookies mostly have the rich aroma of  banana and chocolate ;however they reminded me a lot of banana bread in taste and texture, but in a cookie form.These little cookies are delicious and will be gobbled up in no time at all.I  really enjoyed baking these treats late at night and trying out new creatives photo shots.So try this recipe out for yourself especially if your a fan of banana bread or peanut butter banana sandwiches. Enjoy!
