An Indecisive Cookie

Peanut Butter.



Chocolate Chips.

Oh yeaaa.

Let's get right to it.  I had an urge to make cookies tonight.  The only problem was I could NOT decide what kind of cookie I wanted and Shane was of no help.

Me: "Shaneeeee.  I want to make cookies.  What kind do you want?"
Shane: "Yea make cookies!"
Me: "Of course you want cookies.  I asked what KIND of cookies."
Shane: "Surprise me."

See?  No help.  I had to take matters into my own hands.  

::Opens up pantry::  Peanut butter! Pumpkin!  Bananas!  Oh my! And some chocolate chips,  why not ;)

Seriously?  I questioned whether I could pull it off, but after some searching online I found an adaptable recipe and got down to business. 

Pumpkin PB Nanner Chip Cookies

1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt

3/4 cup pumpkin

1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
small banana chopped up
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax meal + 2 tbsp warm water)

These cookies have a lot goin' on, but they were just what my indecisive taste buds needed.

  1. ooo interesting flavor combo. But all ones i love. I need to make cookies for a friend, but he has requested peanut butter and chocolate. So he was slightly more helpful in the suggestion department
