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.

I made these recently and they tasted like little muffin tops!
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
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!
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?
You can try adding more flour or processing the oats in a food processor first.
These were wonderful – made them with almond butter and my daughter ate three 🙂
I will have to try them with almond butter, sounds delicious!
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.
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!
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.
The only thing that I did not like about this recipe is that they came out dry! Followed the recipe to the T. I added vegetable shortening to see if that would help, they are in the oven now guess we will find out!
These cookies were great! Thank you for sharing with us. P.S. I added 1 cup of mini chocolate chips to mine which were really good too. Thanks again!
This recipe looks both amazing and really healthy! Well done 🙂
Hi Maria – Not sure if you’ll see this note or not because this recipe is on the older side, but have a question. I made these a few weekends ago, but they didn’t turn out all that well. I know they are supposed to be cakey cookies, not chewy cookies, but I think my problem came with the banana. The recipe says 1 mashed banana (about a cup). My 1 mashed banana only came out to be 1/3 of a cup, so I added 3 total bananas to make a mashed cup. So if you list a banana in a recipe, are you measuring by bananas or by cups? That sounds funny. Which is more important – the fact that it is 1 banana or the fact that you need a cup of mashed banana? I’ll have to try again with just adding 1 banana and see how it turns out. Thanks!
You need 1 cup of mashed banana for the recipe. It will vary depending on the size of your bananas!
Wow! Actually I just made it today and it was really delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
I’ve made these twice now, once as written and once with chocolate chips and 50% wheat flour and delicious both ways! I think some dried fruit would be great next time too!
Love the chocolate chip addition!
These are really good! I added more banana and decided to skip the drizzle but they are definitely one of my new favorite cookies. I will definitely be making them again.
you’re really a good webmaster. The website loading speed is incredible. It seems that you are doing any unique trick. Also, The contents are masterpiece. you’ve done a fantastic job on this topic!
Thank you for another magnificent post. Where else could anyone get that type of info in such an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such info.
The very root of your writing while sounding agreeable in the beginning, did not really work properly with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I still have a problem with your jumps in assumptions and you would do well to fill in those breaks. In the event that you can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly end up being impressed.
