Kneading the embellishments into the cookie dough makes a fun project for eager young bakers (ages 4-8). Coarse raw sugar gives the cookies a pleasant crunch.


  • 1 16 1/2 - ounce package refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough
  • 1 cup dried banana chips, coarsely crushed
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 1/4 cup turbinado sugar, Demerara sugar, or colored coarse sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large resealable plastic bag combine cookie dough, banana chips, and chocolate pieces. Seal bag; knead mixture with your hands until dough is well mixed. Remove dough from bag.
  2. Place sugar in a small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll balls in sugar to coat. Place balls 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten balls slightly.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool.


  • To Store: Layer cookies between waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
