Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, and Banana Cookies

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on June 16, 2013

I love me some banana bread. My late grandma-in-law has the best, richest, sweetest, most sinful recipe around. You can’t help but feel that she is right there, smiling with love in her eyes, when you enjoy it.

Although, I must say that Nutella swirl banana bread is a pretty close second.

I also love me some chocolate chip cookies. I would, in fact, eat at at least one every day. {Oh who am I kidding, I’d eat 5 everyday.} And it makes me sad when that doesn’t happen. Like I’m missing a part of myself. Especially if we are talking about brown butter chocolate chip cookies with a light sprinkle of sea salt.

So when it came time to pick a recipe for this months Secret Recipe Club, I just knew that these chocolate chip peanut butter and banana cookies by Amy from The Savvy Kitchen were made for me.

Chewy and sweet from the banana. A touch of salt from the peanut butter. And chocolate. Can’t live without chocolate.

The next time I make these, and there will be a next time, I’m going to up the chocolate, just a touch, by bringing in dark chocolate peanut butter instead of normal old peanut butter. Because you can never have enough chocolate. Never.

Banana, peanut butter and chocolate come together to make a delightfully sweet cookie that reminds me of banana bread.


  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons natural creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup loosely packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 ripe medium bananas, mashed ( about 3/4 cup)
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda, set aside.
  3. Using a mixer with the paddle attachment cream together the peanut butter, butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add in the egg yolk and vanilla extract, beating until smooth. Add in the mashed banana and mix until just combined. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Place golf ball sized balls onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone liners, about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are golden. Let cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

What adorable pictures! I love the fabric – it goes so well with the cookies. Makes me think of cozy evenings with a plate full of cookies and a tub of the best fresh milk…what? no one else? hm…. i said nothing.

seriously though – it’s gorgeous.

Happy SRC Reveal, fellow SRCer!

Really love this recipe. I am used to banana cookies that are very soft and cake-like. These actually had substance and texture of a cookie and held up well, right after they came out of the oven. My son and his friends loved them too. Gonna be hard to make him save some for his dad and sister. I didn’t alter this recipe in any way. Perfect as it is. Thank you for a fine recipe that melds our favorite flavors together.
