Peanut cookie cake crumble(yields 2 medium cookies, or 3 oreo-sized cookies) • 2 tbsp flour (Substitution: wheat flour) • ¼ tsp baking soda • 1 tbsp peanut flour • 1 tbsp or so water (Note the amount) • 1 tsp (dark chocolate) peanut butter • 1 tbsp mashed banana (as ripe as possible for maximum taste) • ½ tsp vanilla extract • Preheat oven to 180 degcelcius.

Why the choice of ingredients? • I felt that these ingredients would combine to make nice peanut cookie cakes/shortbread-like cookies w/ chocolate. • These ingredients were quite healthy, I substituted chocolate with dark chocolate, which is more healthy because it has a lower calorie count compared to normal chocolate. Also, banana is used as a substitute for sugar to give the cookies a naturally sweet taste without needing to add sugar, hence making it healthier. The flour used can be substituted with wheat flour, which is a healthier alternative.
