Banana Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Rolls & PPK tester cookies!

Banana Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Rolls.
Basically giving into yr innermost desires is the best thing ever.I wuv these a lot.I'm eating one as I type this.I'm savouring the first bite and my eyes are bulging from the sheer intensity of banana and chocolate with an incendiary more-than-just-a-hint-of peanut butter.
The idea for these came out last Wednesday when I was walking to get the bus to go to school.It snowed-ish the night before and I was having awful bowel problems.Like everything was watery and sporadic.So when I get to Main St I have to go so bad that I stop in a coffee shop and go.While i'm waiting I see the beautiful,big non-vegan banana chocolate chip muffins in the pastry case and think about how yummy they look.So I start thinking about baking something similar.Muffins,coffee cake maybe,etc,etc.Then I started thinking about how peanut butter makes everything better(especially banana and chocolate!)and peanut butter-improvement makes me think of the peanut butter cinnamon rolls.So all my thoughts coagulate and i'm like "omgbananachocolatechippeanutbutterrolls!!!you should make them!"
and with my abundancy of over ripe bananas I did.And it feels good.

Banana Everythings from the PPK cookie test kitchen.These are really chewy and soft but crispy enough outside to make a very satisfying cookie.They're wholesome because of the oats and bananas but don't taste like health food.I made some with shredded coconut.Yummy.This book is gonna be awesome.

okay you are MUCH too fortunate to be a recipe-tester - those cookies look insanely good!! oh and don't get me started on those cinnamon rolls - seriously, Cinnabon® will go out of business with all the cinnamon-roll variations you feature on your blog!

Hah. I love that this story began with "I was having bowel problems" and ended in "chocolate-peanut butter-banana rolls."
