Why didn’t Elvis just sing it "Are You Hungry Tonight?" He was the King of the Kitchen and his deep love of fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches is legendary. In honor of Elvis, Chef Lisa created these moist and chunky peanut butter, banana and chocolate chip cookies. One bite and you too will be swiveling your hips and singing hunka hunk, burning love. —bitememore
