Take a bite and do the peanut butter and banana dance!

Peanut butter and banana join forces to create some seriously decadent cookies!

Any time a recipe is described as “easy,” I’m open to giving it a shot. Throw in my favorite combination of ingredients (I’m looking at you peanut butter and banana), and I’m all over it. These easy peanut butter banana cookies are super simple to make, and just as enjoyable to eat! You can trust me; I’m a cookie connoisseur. 

My husband was actually the first one to point out that I literally do a little shimmy every time I eat peanut butter and banana. Fittingly, I now refer to it as my peanut butter and banana dance! The moment I took a bite of one of these cookies, I was ready to hit the dance floor. Give these cookies a try, and I guarantee you’ll be dancing too!

Simple, Scrumptious, and So Worth It

Aside from only requiring a few ingredients, the process of preparing these cookies is incredibly simple. Drop the avocado, banana, eggs, creamy peanut butter, and vanilla extract in a food processor and blend until smooth. To keep the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips from getting chopped up, you’ll want to stir those in by hand. 

Avocado in a Cookie?

Using avocados in baked goods is a relatively new trend, but we believe it is here to stay! If you haven’t tried baking with avocado yet, you’re quite literally in for a treat. Not only does avocado add a ton of nutrients to a recipe, but it also adds a wonderfully creamy texture. When it comes to peanut butter cookies, there’s no such thing as “too creamy.”

Worth Every Bite

Scoop about two tablespoons of the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet. The cookies will only need to bake for about eight minutes, so this whole recipe comes together super quickly. They may still be a little soft when they first come out of the oven, but they will firm up a bit as they cool down. 

Because these cookies are just shy of 300 calories per serving, they are meant to be an occasional treat. That said, they’re worth every calorie!

  1. I made these today and am thrilled at how yummy they came out. I used dark chocolate chips so double the yumminess!! Thanks for the recipe!5 stars

  2. Just making these, they are wonderful!
    One question..I’m the main ” allergy cook” for 2 who can’t have eggs…would you suggest trying aquafaba, brm egg replacer,or something else? I’d hate to mess up such a great recipe. Thanks!

    1. Cheryl, I recently discovered Psyllium Husk which is perfect as an egg replacement and binder. Aquafaba doesn’t always work in baking. If you go with the psyllium be sure to get the whole product and not flour. I purchased it from Amazon.
      1 teaspoon psyllium with 3 tablespoons water = 1 egg. Let sit for 15 minutes before adding to the recipe.
