Peanut Butter Banana And Chocolate Cookies
Peanut Butter Banana And Chocolate Cookies – easy to make, fluffy and delicious, these cookies combine my favorite ingredients.
Question: What goes well with peanut butter? Answer: Besides jelly, chocolate loves peanut butter and I’m pretty sure peanut butter loves chocolate (or at least I love them together)!
These Peanut butter banana and chocolate cookies take less that 30 minutes to make and are packed some wonderful flavors. Soft baked, a little chewy and not overly sweet, with a light chocolate drizzle. The creaminess of peanut butter, rich banana flavor and light chocolate drizzle make them perfectly delicious.
I have made these Peanut Butter Banana And Chocolate Cookies a few times before, but although they tasted pretty good, every time I felt they were missing something. Well the original recipe doesn’t call for the chocolate drizzle. I decided to add some chocolate on top (of course you can dip cookies in chocolate), and it worked perfect!
I even feel that these cookies are on the healthier side, because of the banana and peanut butter, but I guess not really! It definitely adds some moisture and a little extra fiber.
Anyway, these peanut butter banana and chocolate drizzle cookies make the perfect mid morning or afternoon snack, and their smaller size doesn’t let you feel like you are over eating.
These are extremely easy to make. Just get all ingredients ready, mix up some dough, form into balls and place on a cookie sheet. If you’d like, you can make the signature PB cookie criss-cross pattern with a fork.
I do recommend that you chill the dough in the fridge for at least 1 hour before baking. The reason for this is to prevent cookies from spreading (I don’t like flat cookies). These way your cookies will bake fluffy and chunky. And after you chill your cookies, they only need about 8-10 minutes to bake, which is pretty quick.
Peanut Butter Banana And Chocolate Cookies
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp cornstarch
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 stick — (1/2 cup / 4 oz/ 125 gr) unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1/2 cup creamy natural peanut butter — (I used low fat)
- 1 large egg
- 1 medium ripe banana mashed
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 oz /100 gr dark — (semi sweet) chocolate
There is an option to chill cookie dough for 1 hour before baking, This way cookies do not spread. If you prefer not to chill dough, preheat oven to 350 F (175 C) before you start mixing the dough. Line a cookie sheets with parchment paper or Silpat.
In a large bowl sift flour, add salt, cornstarch, baking soda and baking powder. Stir.
In the bowl of a stand mixer cream butter and brown sugar for 2 minutes until fluffy. Make sure you scrape sides of the bowl.
Add peanut butter, egg, banana and vanilla extract and beat on medium speed until well combined, scraping the sides of the bowl if needed.
Add in dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Using a small cookie scoop or a 1 tbsp measure dough and form balls. Line on baking sheets and press with fork, to make criss cross pattern (optional).
Chill cookies for 1 hour before baking (optional). Bake at 350 F for 8 minutes. Take out of the oven, cool on baking sheet for at least 5 minutes and transfer to a baking sheet.
Meanwhile melt dark chocolate over a double boiler. Fill a zip lock bag and cut the end. Drizzle chocolate over cookies.

Mmmm! Indeed one of my favorite flavor combinations! I imagine these can be pretty addicting! YUM!
Since they have banana in them, they’re totally a breakfast cookie, right?! Yummmmmm. I want 2 dozen!
I agree Sarah!
I really appreciate how these cookies aren’t overly sweet, but still chewy. The perfect cookie. I have never seen banana and PB in a cookie like this before (and since I spend 50% of my life on Pinterest, just kidding…well close!) These are fantastic. Next time my husband needs me to bake something for his next school fundraiser, these are it!!
Hey Laura, I’m glad you like these and hope you get to make them! I also spend a lot of time on Pinterest 🙂
Looks and sounds wonderful. Never would have thought of pairing banana with peanut butter in a cookie. Great idea indeed.
Thanks a lot Ella!
Peanut butter and bananas are just about the best combo! I still love having peanut butter and banana sandwiches every once in a while. I love your creativity with these cookies, Mira! Sounds like such a delicious combination. And I love how fluffy and soft they look, too. Pinned!
Thanks for pinning Gayle!
Peanut butter and banana on whole grain bread is my favorite sandwich after a long run. These cookies might have to be a staple in my house now! YUM!
Thanks Linda! I think they can easily be veganized!
Yes! I will use banana as the egg replacer, if that doesn’t work out, applesauce with baking powder always works! Thanks!
That’s exactly what I thought 🙂
Peanut butter and banana, the perfect combination plus the bonus of chocolate. Lovely cookies.
Yay, PB and chocolate! I love it! These look really thick and soft. Perfect!
such cute cookies! You cannot go wrong with PB, Chocolate & Banana! Pinning!
Thanks for the pin Manali!
this flavor combo is what you call *perfection*! I could just eat like a dozen of these! and soft I mean come on how could I not eat a dozen! yum pinning!
These cookies look pretty perfect, as if you’ve just bought them from a shop (but I know you didn’t, of course!) They look even more perfect with the chocolate drizzle on top.
P.S. Oh, and of course these are healthy – they have banana in!
Thanks for the lovely comments Helen!
Oh I totally agree. Chocolate and Peanut Butter are the absolute best combo! 🙂 Great recipe!
Classic flavour combo! This is fab, I have a bunch of kids over this weekend, I’m making this!!
Thanks Nagi! They are super easy to make!
These ingredients together can never do wrong. That’s a great recipe Mira.
thanks so much, Regina!!!
I am a sucker for cookies!! Actually I have a very ripe banana wanting to be used hahaha … perfect excuse!! Pinned.
Yeah, if you have ripe bananas, these cookies are a great idea!
These look so good – I like the flavor combos. I’ll be trying this with my ripe banana next time (usually those go to banana bread)! 🙂
I hope you like it Sarah!
As long as there’s banana in them, everything else goes out the window and I will consider them healthy. Sounds reasonable, right?
I totally agree Sarah!
Hallo Mira, this is my favorite cookies, peanut butter and chocolate are perfect combo!
Chocolate + PB = the best combo ever (love the chocolate drizzle!)!! And such pretty photos! Pinned!
Good call on the chocolate drizzle! Pb, banana and chocolate is one of my all time favorite combinations! Pinned!
I’m glad you like it Lindsey!
That’s like having snack in the form of cookie!! Send me some!!
I could send some Ami!
These cookies look gorgeous! My dad used to make peanut butter cookies when we were kids, but I’ve never had them with banana – that sounds incredible! I bet it helps to keep those cookies nice and moist too (sorry dad, you’re cookies, while delicious, were sometimes a little dry). The drizzle of chocolate on top is like the piece de resistance!
I love PB cookies, but yeah, they tend to dry if you over bake them with even a minute! 🙂
I have a firm belief that peanut butter goes with just about everything! I’ve even tried it spread on a burger and loved it… These cookies sound like the perfect combination of flavors and I love how you used low-fat peanut butter and less sugar because of the sweetness of the bananas. Gorgeous pictures too, Mira!
I agree 100% Heather, PB just goes well with everything! Thanks for the nice comments!
These cookies are adorable! Soft and chewy cookies are my favorite and I love the peanut butter, banana and chocolate combo! Sign me up for dozen – yum!
I am so happy I cannot eat fruit or gluten or sugar or dairy because… If I could… I would gobble these up in NEGATIVE 5 seconds! NO JOKE!
I totally understand GiGi 🙂 I should make a healthier version 🙂
Hi5! I made peanut butter and banana chocolate cookies this week too! I am yet to post them though 😉 The only difference is that you have this talent of making everything look super gourmet and professional! Love x
I can’t wait to see yours and I’m sure will like them! Thanks for the compliments Tash!!!
Love those cookies! I love banana bread and anything with peanut butter, but never thought to mix them together and bake some cookies! The recipe seems easy and perfect for a friend gathering. Saved!
Thanks a lot Maggie!
