Making Banana PB Cookies

Category Filipino
If you have excess bananas, use them up to make these delicious peanut butter cookies. They make a great after school snack but could be a quick breakfast too.

We get bags of bananas at a discount at our local grocery. They come like 20 for $2 so we buy them, freeze some, and bake things. The packaging also comes with recipes, and this is one I tried to great effect.

Prep Time: 30

Cook Time: 10

Yield: 25 or 40 depending on size


  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or margarine (I suppose butter would do)
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F and put parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Or spray it with cooking spray.

  3. Combine flour and baking soda in a small bowl with a sifter.
  4. In medium mixing bowl, beat banana, brown sugar, oil, and peanut butter until light and fluffy using electirc mixer.
  5. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually mix in flour mix until dough begins to form.
  6. Shape dough into balls. Original recipe calls for 1-inch balls that should yield about 45 cookies, but I was not particularly careful about that and got only about 25. Then recipe suggests you decorate with the edge of your fork to make crisscross lines but I did not do that.

  8. Bake until edges are soft which ends up being about 10 minutes. Quickly remove and put on cooling rack and eat when cold.
