Grain Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
(That means Gluten Free, too. Yay!)
2/3 cup peanut butter
1 small ripe banana mashed up completely
1/2 cup white sugar
2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all ingredients together except the chocolate chips making sure there are NO lumps.  Add the chocolate chips.  The 'dough' looked more like a batter:

Scoop onto cookie sheet and bake for 10 mins. That's it.
I used the natural peanut butter that you have to stir, but I'm sure any peanut butter would work.  They came out crispy on the outside and gooey and melty on the inside.  Everything you could ask for in a cookie.
*This recipe was inspired by one I got from my friend here: flourless peanut butter chocolate chip cookies.  Thanks Pilar! They looked so good and not super UN-healthy, but of course I HAVE to mess with perfection.  I put 1/3 less peanut butter, added banana, put 1/2 the sugar, added cocoa powder and put 1/2 the chocolate chips then the original recipe.
