Notes: Thanks for the idea Lucy!!!!! My dear friend came into work with a batch of pumpkin cookies and told me she had a great banana cookie recipe. I tweaked it obviously, but what a killer idea!!! If any of you know Elvis, you know he liked fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, so I just knew he would like these cookies, so I named them after him. These are great any time of day…even breakfast! Bananas are good for breaky right?? These can be made vegan too by not using butter but all shortening. Enjoy!!
