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.

    Bananas will definitely pair these peanut butter cookies perfectly! It will be the best if you drizzle some chocolate syrup to make things wilder! LOL. Thanks a lot for sharing the recipe! My son here beside me is getting really hungry. he wants me to make some for him today. LOL

    I actually had a honey, Peanut butter and banana sandwish on oatnut bread today! These cookies as dessert would have been awesome with a glass of milk.

  7. Dana — September 27, 2010 @ 11:42 pm

    Both of my boys LOVE those sandwiches and I’m positive that they would love those cookies even more. You truly are cookie goddess.

    That’s funny, I was just sitting here eating a dry and crumbly peanut butter cookie from a shop near my office and thinking about what a waste of calories it is! These look so much better, and the banana gives a low-fat moistness. Love it!

    What a cute cookie!!!! Can I make it with almond butter (peanut allergies in the family.) I recently made an unbelievable almond butter pita pocket – yum! Do check it out

  10. twopeas — October 1, 2010 @ 7:55 am

    Yes, you can use almond butter!

  11. Mlalanie Tiger — October 4, 2010 @ 9:44 am

    Those really look delicious. Banana? I never thought of putting it on a cookie recipe and it is much more perfect with peanut butter. I will surely try this recipe tomorrow!

  12. The Food Hunter — October 5, 2010 @ 1:57 pm

    Might try these tonight

  13. Mel Schoenhut — October 14, 2010 @ 1:17 am

    Those three ingredients, banana, peanut butter and honey are truly a great combination. I should try this one to know what your recipe really tastes. Thanks for sharing. If my kids love these cookies then I will be baking some of these for our family reunion.

  14. Maria Nell — October 14, 2010 @ 8:20 pm

    So excited to try this!! I LOVE peanut butter and honey..and bananas! I am planning on making these for Thanksgiving at my boyfriends house for his whole family this year. I know they will be great!

  15. Hannah — November 14, 2010 @ 2:36 pm

    I made these recently and they tasted like little muffin tops!

  16. Allison — November 26, 2010 @ 12:13 am

    Probably one of my favorite cookie recipes!!
    A couple healthy substitutions I make that work perfectly:
    Replace a.p. flour for white whole wheat flour
    Replace all butter with applesauce
    Replace white sugar with splenda
    Increase oats by just a little bit
    Thank You!!!

  17. Sylvia — December 5, 2010 @ 5:55 pm

    They’re in the oven at this very moment! I can’t wait to try them, and based on the batter, these will be delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

  18. twopeas — December 5, 2010 @ 7:17 pm

    One of my favorite cookies. I hope you liked them!

    I made these last night and they are very good! Love the flavor, and the glaze was unbelievable! I am not a big fan of the texture of oats though, and I’m wondering if you think they might work ok next time without the oats? 2 cups of something is a lot to remove… do you think there’s something I could add instead of oats that would serve the same purpose, but not have that grain-y texture?

  21. twopeas — December 14, 2010 @ 3:35 pm

    You can try adding more flour or processing the oats in a food processor first.

  22. Ginny — January 5, 2011 @ 1:28 pm

    These were wonderful – made them with almond butter and my daughter ate three :)

  23. twopeas — January 5, 2011 @ 4:28 pm

    I will have to try them with almond butter, sounds delicious!

  24. Ginny — January 11, 2011 @ 12:51 pm

    I just wanted to let you know we made another batch today. My daughter ate the last one for breakfast this morning so I had to make another batch :) I promise she eats more than cookies – she’s just very picky, so anything she will put in her mouth is a triumph, especially if I can sneak some healthy things in there like oats and fruit.

    Thanks again for such a great recipe.

  25. twopeas — January 12, 2011 @ 6:45 am

    So happy you are still loving the cookies!

    These were great and very easy to put together! I’m not a huge oatmeal cookie fan, so I might try to reduce the amount of oats next time.

    I made these last night and they were delicious! Quick question though. Mine turned out a bit like cake. Should they have the texture of a typical oatmeal cookie? I followed the directions exactly and so I’m not sure where I went wrong!

  31. twopeas — April 11, 2011 @ 12:38 pm

    They are a cakey cookie. If you want more of a thin/flat oatmeal cookie, reduce flour and increase oats.

    These are fabulous, thanks for the recipe! I never would have thought to put these ingredients together in a cookie, but it so natural!

    I know your post has been around awhile, but I just discovered it & pinned it. I baked these up today and they’re delicious. I’m keeping that peanut butter & honey glaze close for all kinds of delicious treats. So, very belatedly, THANK YOU! :)

    SO excited to make these. Love PB, nana, honey sandwiches. <3

    These look amazing!

    As a kid, my mom always made me PB-Banana & honey sandwiches. She’d make it in a hot dog bun though so you could put the whole banana in. So yummy! Can’t wait to try these cookies.

    The Elvis version of the sandwich has bacon in it too. Maybe a sprinkle of sea salt atop the cookie to try and replicate the flavors. Mmm, can’t wait.
