Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are extra soft, a little gooey & packed with flavor. If you like your chocolate chip cookies a little cakey – or if you love the combination of peanut butter and banana – then these are for you!
But for the first time, I decided to combine these 3 kitchen classics and create the most delicious, flavor packed, soft & chewy cookie. Enter: Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies.
They’re going to change your cookie eating life in the most fantabulous way.
Because these peanut butter banana chocolate chip cookies are the softest, thickest, chewiest chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever eat. If you like your cookies thin & crispy – then I suggest you try this recipe instead.
But if you like your chocolate chip cookies almost cakey – then these my friend ar for you.
They start off just like peanut butter cookies (cream together the butter, peanut butter, sugar, egg & vanilla), but then we’re adding in mashed banana. The mashed banana adds a delicious hint of banana bread flavor and creates super soft cookies.
Plus banana & peanut butter are a match made in heaven.
Then the dry ingredients are mixed in, and we stir in some chocolate chips.
At this point, you’ll notice that the batter is very soft for chocolate chip cookies. So it’s time to cover the dough and chill it in the fridge. This is 100% mandatory to get soft, chewy, thick, cakey chocolate chip cookie perfection. Otherwise your cookies will spread too thin and burn 🙁
Then after the mandatory chilling (I recommend munching on a few chocolate chips to pass the time….), the cookies are formed into balls, flattened slightly, and we’re ready to bake.
Once they come out of the oven, I like to add a few chocolate chips on the top of each cookie for visuals (and extra chocolate). And then it’s time to devour.
These are definitely the softest chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made – and the combination of peanut butter, banana and chocolate is seriously on point. So if you like your cookies a little cakey, or want to take your CCC’s up a notch – these peanut butter banana chocolate chip cookies are for you!
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter , softened to room temp

Beat together the butter, sugar & peanut butter in a large bowl using an electric mixer. Once combined beat in the egg, vanilla and mashed banana.
Turn the mixer down to low speed and carefully mix in the flour, baking soda and salt.
Then turn off the mixer and stir in 1 cup of the chocolate chips. The batter will be very soft and sticky.
Cover the bowl withe clingfilm and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
Form the dough into balls about 1.5-2 tablespoons in size. Place 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets, flatten the balls slightly and place the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips on the top of each cookie.
Bake for 7-9 minutes or until the tops look just set. Allow to cool on the tray for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack
