Peanut Butter, Banana, and Honey Cookies

Peanut Butter, Banana, and Honey Cookies

It is officially fall and we are ready for comfort foods. My favorite comfort food of all time is a peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwich on whole wheat bread. I recently created a peanut butter, banana, and honey cookie, inspired by my favorite comfort food. If you like peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwiches, you will adore these cookies.

I know peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwiches are simple, but there is something special about them.  They are delicious, wholesome, and bring me back to my childhood. When I was younger, I loved making my own peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwiches so I could squeeze the golden honey bear. Of course, I always made a sticky mess, but I didn’t mind because I got to lick my fingers:) I was precise in my banana placing, I wanted a slice of banana in every bite. I carefully lined them up across the bread that had been slathered with creamy peanut butter and drizzled with sweet honey. I always cut my sandwiches in half and savored every bite.

Peanut butter, banana, and honey cookies have the same comforting flavors as the sandwich. These cookies are hearty and scrumptious. The peanut butter honey glaze takes these cookies from great to grand! I could eat the glaze by the spoonful or maybe even the bowl:)

I will continue to enjoy my favorite sandwich, but peanut butter, banana, and honey cookies are a new favorite comfort food.

    Yum, these look perfect! I don’t have honey right now, but I have agave syrup. Do you think I could use that instead?

      I think agave would work great. Let me know if you give them a try!

    I consider anything that’s infused with peanut butter to be a comfort food. these cookies are definitely going to have to be made because after the exam I just took..comfort is definitely what I need!
