Chewy Peanut Butter, Choc Chip, Banana and Almonds cookies

Ok I admit that seems like a lot of ingredients but they taste very nice and are sort of healthy. I have found the recipe on the Healthy Food Guide website: and I had some bananas lying around so I decided to add one to the biscuits and reduce the sugar. So here it is:

  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 85g dark chocolate, chopped in chunks
  • 1 mashed banana
  • A handful of almonds, cut into pieces
Preheat oven to 180°C. Combine peanut butter, egg, sugar and baking soda, the almonds and the banana in a bowl. Mix well. Add chocolate. Stir to combine.
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Using hands, shape teaspoonfuls of mixture in balls and place on tray about 5cm apart.Now that's where the execution is different if you are using my variation. The mixture will be too wet to roll the cookies into balls so use a spoon.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned on top. Allow to sit on tray for a few minutes in oven, before removing to cool.
