Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate 'Chunky Monkey' Cookies | These cookies are 6 ingredients, so simple to make and ready in under 30 minutes!

I’m a cookie lover. That’s no secret, everyone knows it, and if you didn’t then now you know it too.

Good ol’ chocolate chip never gets old to me, but I do also like to change it up a bit you know? Variety. It’s exciting! So I’m always looking for new cookies to welcome into my life.

Everyone keeps going on about peanut butter and jelly being the ultimate combination, but for me it’s all about the peanut butter and banana. It is said that peanut butter and banana was actually Elvis Presley’s favourite combo, so who am I to argue with the king?

I love how simple these are to make.

Yea, sure, sometimes I don’t mind creaming and mixing and beating. But sometimes I want to just get it done so I can enjoy my baking spoils.

You mash some bananas, stir in some delicious and crunchy ingredients, plop onto a baking tray, shape and then bake. You can’t go wrong, you can’t screw it up, and you won’t have to wait long. Just sit back and have a freshly baked, no-effort cookie. This, my friends, is the secret to life.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 2 large or 4 small bananas
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 80g (1 cup) rolled oats
  • 1 scoop (30g) vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips or cacao nibs
  • ½ cup flaked or chopped almonds
  • Pinch of salt
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Peel the bananas, add them to a bowl, and mash them with a fork or potato masher until smooth.
  3. Mix in the peanut butter until it’s fully combined and not lumpy. Stir in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Spoon roughly one tablespoon of each mixture into the lined baking sheet. That makes one cookie, so repeat until there is no more batter left.
  5. Use the back of a spoon to shape them into nice little circles, decorate with some chopped bananas, if desired, and then bake for 10-12 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool.
