SNACKurday 1: Minty Peanut Butter and Banana Cookies

Welcome to Kitty's Kitchen! Today I'm supervising Mom as she attempts to make cookies! We are going for peanut butter and banana, with a touch of mint for fresh breath (parsley also works great for this!). 

Step one. 
Mom cut a few mint leaves from the plant and snipped them into tiny pieces. She mushed up a super ripe banana, and combined those ingredients along with a big dollop of homemade peanut butter in a bowl. Then she added an egg from one of our chickens, and enough flour to make it into a dough-like consistency. She also preheated the oven to 325 degrees!

The Dough

Step two. 
Mom rolled the dough out on a floured cutting board and then put some more flour over top of that. She said this helps it to not stick. Then, she took the bone-shaped cookie cutters and set to work. 

These are all for me, right?

The cookies!

Step three. Mom stuck 'em in the oven. Apparently now, we wait! We weren't sure how long they were going to take because mom said she "pulled this recipe out of her butt." One time, Aero ate some string and she had to pull THAT out of his butt. Hopefully the cookies are way better! 

Waiting for them to get done baking!

After about 15 minutes, we flipped them over and then stuck them back in the oven.

Another 15 minutes later, they were done!! Woohoo! But, we had to wait for them to cool. Darn it. 


They were a hit with all of us. I am still a little bit outraged that mom didn't give them ALL to ME. I mean, come on, I did all the work! 

Can we have moooore? 

Thanks for stopping by! 



  1. Kitty, Those look great! I'm going to beg my mom to make these for us soon!

    1. Tell her to make a big batch so you don't have to share too many of them! We love 'em. Mom says she didn't like the taste of them too much, but she's crazy!
