The Naughty Monkey

Doesn't that sound wonderfully kinky? Or at least curiously embarrassing?? Or how about tasty and delicious?? Well, it can!

I've been in the kitchen "experimenting" again. This time I had two bananas so old they had their AARP cards delivered and a hankering for a really good cookie; something with peanut butter and maybe oatmeal!

So I created a little yummy Frankenstein I like to call The Naughty Monkey. If you like banana bread and peanut butter cookies combined, this is your thing. It has banana, oatmeal, peanut butter, walnuts and chocolate chips in it. What else could you want? How about a cocktail? I know I do! How about this wonderful Cosmopolitan Cake martini? *hic* I've had two. They're fhamtasktical. *hic*

The Naughty Monkey
1 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 ripe bananas (mashed)
1 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1 2/3 - 2 cups oatmeal
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
chopped walnuts
semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 deg. Beat the first 7 ingredients until fluffy. Add the next 5 ingredients. Finally add nuts and chips. Chill in the fridge for a few minutes before baking. Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake 12-14 min. Let cool before you shove them into your mouth. ENJOY!

Nuts are totally optional. I hedged on putting them in at first. Thought maybe make half without and then add to the rest, cause the boys aren't that crazy about them. But I thought 'what the hell' and tossed them in anyway.

Alas, even the peanut butter wouldn't pass daughter's scrutiny. But I've saved the recipe to treat the rest of us with sometime... yum! :-))
