Peanut Butter and Banana Cookie Recipe

One of my favorite flavor combinations is peanut butter and banana.   I was so excited when I found this recipe, that I could not wait to try them.  These cookies are quick and easy and a big hit with the kids!

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 small ripe banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup)
1/3 cup firmly packed light  brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup chunky peanut butter or creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine flour and baking soda in a small bowl.  In a medium mixing bowl, beat together banana, brown sugar, butter, and peanut butter until light and fluffy, using an electric mixer.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Gradually beat in flour mixture until a dough forms.  Shape dough into 1 inch balls and place on baking sheet.  Bake cookies for about 10 minutes.
