If you are a fan of little bits of then you know that I love and easy and delicious cookie recipes. I actually love anything that is easy and delicious.  This recipe was created because I had 2 beautiful ripe bananas.  Some people don’t like bananas.  Some people like green bananas.  Sane people LOVE ripe bananas.  The brown spots mean that the sugars in the banana have reached their highest sugary potentional.  If you want a banana to taste soft and sweet, wait for those spots!  OH! And Oprah told me that ripe bananas can fight cancer.  That’s right, she told me right here! She is so wise.

I also just read this list of energy boosters on her site.  I think self improvement is awesome.  I am constantly looking at lists and articles like that and trying to improve!  No matter how awesome you may be (which is probably pretty awesome if you are reading my blog)  there is always something new to learn about yourself and your life.  Thats what makes life so exciting!  So many possibilities. M&M’s probably thought they would just be a candy coated chocolate their whole life. But now there is almond, pretzel, coconut & peanut butter!! And when its Easter they can make them look likes eggs!  Oprah and M&M’s just get it.  Ready to try something new?  Self improve?  Make cookies with banana instead of eggs?  Lets do this!

First make your batter. (it will take 5 minutes..)

 Scoop onto your cookie sheet and top with pretty sprinkles.

 Bake for about 11 minutes.

 Look at that peanut butter! Enjoy!
