Is there anything better than the classic double peanut butter cookies with the added bonus of chocolate? I think not! This decadent and perfectly baked cookie has a soft center and crispy outside. With only a few ingredients, these are super easy to make and simply too delicious not to try.

You get a subtly perfect banana flavor in these banana peanut butter chocolate chip cookies which also provide the natural sweetness and chewy center which is a big reason why I love adding bananas to baked goods.

If you love peanut butter cookies you’ll love my Double Peanut Butter Cookies and if you want to skip the chocolate be sure to try my chocolate chipless cookies.

Why you’ll love this recipe:

  • A great recipe to use up those ripe bananas.
  • Soft and chewy cookie, filled with melted chocolate.
  • Comes together quickly.
  • Classic flavor combinations of peanut butter and chocolate.

Ingredients and Substitutions:

These are the main ingredients for these peanut butter banana cookies. See the recipe card below for the full ingredients list and instructions.

Cookie ingredients including flour, vanilla, banana, and baking soda.
  • Light Brown Sugar: can be substituted with coconut sugar or sugar substitute
  • White Sugar: can be substituted with coconut sugar or sugar substitute
  • Butter: can be replaced with coconut oil.
  • Creamy Peanut Butter: I do not recommend using extra runny natural peanut butter for these cookies. The oil separates and makes the cookie fall apart.
  • Butter: room temp works just fine! Substitute with coconut oil 1:1.

Variations

  • Add peanut butter chips, nuts or any desired add-ins.
  • Add chopped nuts or raisins.

Dietary Modifications

  • Dairy-free, substitute the butter for coconut oil and make sure your chocolate chips are dairy-free.
  • Gluten-free, substitute flour for gluten-free flour. I recommend Bob’s Red Mill 1:1.

How to make these banana peanut butter chocolate chip cookies:

Step 1: preheat and prep

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper.

Step 2: mix wet ingredients

In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, melted and cooled butter, peanut butter, vanilla and mashed banana until smooth. Some banana chunks can remain.

Step 5: make cookie balls

Drop 1.5 Tbsp. spoonfuls of cookie dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet. This recipe makes approximately 17 cookies with a 1.5 Tbsp. cookie scoop.

Step 6: bake and cool

Bake for 7-9 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool to room temperature.

Expert Tip!

Do not over-mix your dough as it will result in dense cookies. Mix until only just combined.

Recipe FAQs

How do you store these cookies?

Store your cookies in an airtight container for 3-4 days.

How do you make all cookies the same shape after baking?

If you want the cookies to all be the same shape after baking, take to top of a mason jar lid, place it over the cookie and swirl it around in a circular motion for a few minutes. This will result in the perfect circular cookies.

What size cookie scoop do I use?

Space cookie dough evenly on the pan and make into even sized cookie dough balls. I use a 1.5 Tbs cookie dough scoop to ensure they are the same size.

Can I add protein powder to these cookies?

These cookies have not been tested with protein powder. If added, it can make them a much fluffier or denser cookie (depending on the protein powder used) so I suggest sticking to the below recipe. If you’d like to try with protein powder try replacing ¼ cup of flour with 1 scoop of protein powder, adding more to meet the desired cookie dough consistency and leaving a comment so others know how it worked.

How to make these lower in calories?

For lower calories: sub out the sugars at a 1:1 ratio with a sugar substitute. To lower fat and calories: use PB2 instead of regular peanut butter. Use 2 Tbsp. powdered PB2 mixed with 1 Tbsp. water and a pinch of cinnamon to take the bite off.

    My family loves these cookies. They are the perfect level of sweetness and the banana and peanut butter flavors are perfection. I make them every couple of days now!

  4. I’m a novice baker. I faffed around with cinnamon and stuff for so long that the wet mixture went claggy so I couldn’t drop the mixed dough. Still made delicious cookies! Thanks so much.
