Feeling disheartened, disappointed and stressed about the current state of affairs in our country? Do you need a cathartic outlet because of the hatred and bigotry that has been expressed within the past week? Well, look no further than the All-Inclusive Cookie.
The All-Inclusive Cookie is a cookie that mixes the best ingredients from three of your favorite classic cookies: the chocolate chip cookie, the peanut butter cookie and the oatmeal raisin cookie. It also includes bananas to add that extra protein and punch!
While these three classic cookies are great-tasting individually, when you unite them together into one cookie, the results are even better. The All-Inclusive Cookie is a lot more powerful, satisfying and unique because of its diverse range of flavors in the same way our country is stronger because of the diversity of its people.
So if you are looking for some fuel for your next march, protest and/or rally, make sure to bake against bigotry and bring along the All-Inclusive Cookie. It will certainly give you everything that you will need to continue to fight on!
Original recipe created by Sandy and Natasha Tandler.
8 oz. unsalted butter (2 sticks)
3 ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 ½ tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp corn starch
¾ cup white sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
2 cup whole-wheat flour
1 ½ cup chunky peanut butter
2 cup oats
1 cup raisins
¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
First, combine soft butter with eggs in a large bowl. Add vanilla, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cornstarch to the mixture. Pour in the white and brown sugar. Stir the entire mixture together.
Next, add in the whole wheat flour to the bowl and stir again.
In a separate bowl, slightly mash the bananas but not so fine that they are reduced to a liquid state. Make sure that the bananas are still in small chunks. Add the bananas to the bowl and stir all of the ingredients together.
Add the chunky peanut butter and stir the mixture. Proceed to add the oats and stir again.
Finally, pour in the raisins and the chocolate chips and stir the ingredients together for the final time.
Put round spoonfuls of cookie dough onto ungreased baking sheets. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. Let the cookies cool on baking sheets for five minutes, then remove the cookies with a spatula and enjoy.
Creates about 45 small 2 ½ inch wide cookies.
