Cookies to blow your diet

So.. I haven't done much baking.. Between chasing a crawling baby and trying to lose extra weight I generally avoid baked goods... Which is still my favorite food thing ever.
But, Hubby needed some for a friend so I thought I would mix it up and make a new cookie.

One of my new fav. things to do is mix jello pudding powder into baked goods to give them a hint of flavor.

So here are my Chocolate Bottomed PB Nana Cookies.

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup peanut butter (I am VERY generous with my 1/2 cup.. it's usually more)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/8 cup banana cream jello pudding powder (the banana flavor is pretty subtle.  So you can add more if you like)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups  flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 bag semi sweet chocolate chips

Mix 1st 7 ingredients together

 Add in dry ingredients and  scoop spoonfuls  onto a cookie sheet.  
 Sprinkle with sugar and make criss crosses with a fork.
 Allow to cool completely.  
Melt remaining chocolate chips and use to coat the backs of the cookies.
 When you don't allow them to cool completely then they break when you go to coat them.  Then I had do eat it.   DARN YOU COOKIE!  I just used the back of a spoon to coat the cookie back.
Once the bottoms are coated let them set up and eat more cookies.
