These Banana Peanut Butter cookies are probably the easiest thing you will ever make.  Yes I know that scooping the peanut butter from the jar and eating it from a spoon is even easier but…..this is the next best thing.

I love peanut butter without reservation. The crunchier it is the more I love it. It’s quite often better I don’t have a jar of it around the house because I can eat it by the spoonful.

Are you a fan?  If you are you will love these cookies.

Banana Peanut Butter Cookies. Cook them till dark golden and they will be crispy and so good.

I was reminded I used to make them all the time when I saw a post with a very similar recipe to this on Recipe Tin Eats. My recipe has banana in it. It’s a poor attempt at making me feel like these are a health food. They aren’t. Sugar and peanut butter are pretty much the majority of the 4 ingredients it takes to make them. On the positive side they  have banana…… (see I told you it was a good recipe).

So I can hear you asking me…..why would I make these?. That is simple. They are gluten free and you can stir them together in 10 minutes. They’re a fun thing to make with kids because there really isn’t anything much you can do wrong. All you need is a bowl and a fork.

AND they are delicious, so peanut buttery.

STOP it someone take them away.

I make mine with the crunchiest peanut butter I can find. You could make them with other nut butters too (just not the ones from the supermarket as they don’t have much actual nut in them)

Give them a try.
