Got ripe bananas? These easy Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are WAY more fun than making banana bread and so delicious too! Super soft and absolutely amazing!
Yesterday we found ourselves in a situation that we have learned to love – extra ripe bananas that need to be made into something amazing! Banana bread, banana muffins, banana cake – there’s so many delicious and exciting ways to use up those ripe bananas.
These cookies are one of our favorites.
Some time ago I shared the original recipe for these cookies – Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies. They have received rave reviews! Extra soft and incredibly tasty, they are many reader’s new favorite way to use up their own ripe bananas.
Enter these Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies seemed sooo much harder to say 🙂 Chocolate and banana go together beautifully, of course. But you know what goes even better with bananas? Peanut butter! The addition of peanut butter chips really takes these cookies over the top.
You’ll notice that there isn’t an egg in the ingredients list – this is NOT a typo. You really don’t need it in this recipe which is awesome if you know someone with an egg allergy.
There’s a lot of different ways you can customize these amazing cookies. One of our favorites is by adding in nuts. Walnuts, pecan, macadamia nuts – all delicious! The cookies are extra soft so let cool completely before storing. I like to separate them with a piece of parchment paper if I need to stack them.
