So I know right now you’re probably thinking: “Didn’t I just see a recipe for nut free banana chocolate chip cookies on this blog?”

You’re not wrong – I did post a recipe for Sunbutter banana chocolate chip cookies just last month. But that’s just how I am. I often find myself being a bit repetitive in life.

Growing up, I used to really love this Mediterranean chicken and goat cheese panini at Jack Astors and without fail, I would order it everytime I went there. When I go on walks, I often take the exact same route. If I really love a song, I’ll play it twice in a row. Last winter when I first saw the movie Chef one night, I immediately woke up and watched it again the next morning. When I workout at GoodLife Fitness, I almost always do a 15 minute warm up on the bike followed by a 30 minute weight workout.

What can I say, I find comfort in repetition.

So when I saw this recipe for peanut butter banana chocolate chip cookies on Two Peas and their Pod just a few days after I posted my own banana chocolate chip cookie recipe, I decided I wanted to make it anyway. I used soy nut butter to make it safe for my allergies and changed some of the ingredients and quantities based on what I had on hand. The result was soft, muffin-like soy nut butter banana chocolate chip cookies that taste like banana bread! JZ and I both had one warm out of the oven – and then I went back for a second one.

Sometimes repetition is a good thing.

  1. These look delicious! I’m trying to stick to natural sweeteners these days, so this is perfect!

  2. How dare you be repetitive. I tend to be in some instances (like food) but others (travel, exploring, non home dining), I’m more adventurous!

    Send some over too please.

      I don’t like to be repetitive with travel or restaurants either. Especially restaurants – people make fun of me for never wanting to go to the same restaurant twice, but there are too many good ones out there I want to try!

  3. haha Chef is definitely a movie worthy of watching multiple times. I love it! I also think that Chef-friend needs his own food truck. That’d be awesome.

    I’m definitely a creature of habit (oh hey, avocado and egg toast almost daily for the last year…) but once in a while I get bored and need to try something new.

      PLEASE convince Chef friend to start his own food truck. I mean, between the both of us and all our Canadian blogger friends, we could give him awesome publicity on social media!

  4. Play a song that you like twice? Soooo I’m someone who will literally listen to a song on repeat until I can’t stand it anymore… and then move on to another one and do the same thing :lol: But with food I definitely tend to do a lot of the same old, same old. Sometimes I just don’t want to think about it so my brain goes on auto-pilot.

  5. If these cookies are involved, I say repetition is a great thing.

    I eat the same thing at my restaurant all the time. I can’t help it. It’s just soooo good.

      Haha I can be like that with my favourite restaurants too. When I was in university I must have ordered the Mediterranean chicken panini from this restaurant every time I went there, which was at least 6 times lol.
