Ingredients

For the crispy caramelized bananas:

1 banana, thinly sliced

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons butter, melted

2 tablespoons sugar

For the cookies:

1 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup honey

1 cup flour

1 cup chocolate, coarsely chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F.
  2. For the bananas: Mix the bananas in a bowl. Squeeze the lemon juice on them to ensure they don't brown. On a parchment paper-lined baking tray, brush 1 tablespoon melted butter. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar and lay out the banana slices. Brush the slices with remaining butter and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake for about 1/2 hour until the bananas are golden brown. Set aside.
  3. For the cookies: In a medium bowl, stir together the peanut butter and honey. Mix in the flour, then the caramelized bananas and chocolate. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop tablespoon-size clusters on the baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. 

Cook’s Note

For dog cookies, omit the banana chips and chocolate.
