Peanut Butter and Banana Cookies
1/4 cup safflower oil
2/3 cup mild honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 to 2/3 cup peanut butter, to taste
1 cup mashed, very ripe banana (about 1 large banana)
3/4 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons double-acting baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt, preferably sea salt
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 scant tablespoonfuls 1 inch apart and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on racks.
