The Best Ever!!! Peanut Butter & Banana Cookies! (Ya I said it…)

Peanut butter and banana cookies

Ok so let’s be honest!

Most of the best recipes come out of throwing whatever you have in the fridge together! Those days when you really need to grocery shop, and you have bare minimum to work with!

These cookies are no exception! I was craving some classic peanut butter cookies, but had no vanilla, no eggs and a bunch of overripe bananas sitting on the table!

So these, big chewy peanut buttery beauty’s were the result! If you ask my fam, they’re the best ever! So obviously, you should definitely give them a try!

  • 1/2 Cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/4 Cup butter, softened
  • 1 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 Cups flour
  • Some granulated white sugar for rolling your cookies in.

Pre heat your oven to 350.

  1. In a large bowl, mix your peanut butter, brown sugar and butter together until well combined.
  2. Add in your almond extract and banana. Mix until well combined.
  3. Add in all dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
  4. Take about 1 Tbsp of your dough and roll into a ball. Roll your ball into your sugar to coat and place on an un greased baking sheet. (About 2 inches apart. Cookies will spread a bit)
  5. Press a crisscrossed pattern into the top of your cookie using a fork.
  6. bake for 10 minuets.
  7. Let cookies cool on cookie sheet about 5 minutes before removing. (They’ll seem super soft at first)

Grab a big old glass of milk and dig in!!

Enjoy!
