Peanut Butter And Banana Cookies
1/4 cup safflower oil
2/3 cup honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract (up to)
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup mashed, very
3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
2 tsp. double-acting baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
The batter is very runny, but it's OK, because that's what
makes these cookies light, they literally melt in your
mouth. If you want a heavier cookie, add 1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
or white flour to the recipe, and delete 1 teaspoon baking
powder. These cookies are very soft.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cream together the oil and honey. Beat
in the eggs, vanilla, and peanut butter, then stir in the mashed banana.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt and stir into the liquid
mixture. Blend well. Drop onto oiled baking sheets by tablespoonfuls
1 inch apart and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on racks.
