These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Cookies are the lightest, fluffiest cookies you’ve ever put in your mouth! All of your favorite cookie ingredients packed into a single cookie.
This recipe is proof of two things. One, I might be infatuated with the peanut butter and chocolate flavor combination. And two, I’m also loving going through my family recipe book and putting my own spin on things. Neither is a bad thing though, right?
These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Cookies are my take on my grandma’s Banana Oatmeal Drop Cookies. One of the many recipes included in a cookbook my mom gave me for one of my bridal showers full of family recipes.
And I thought, what two ingredients go well together? Peanut butter and banana! Hmmm… I wonder if I can transform that original recipe into something new and just a bit more decadent. Because that’s how I roll if you haven’t caught on by now. And if I’m going to add peanut butter, I probably should add chocolate chips. That’s the logical choice, wouldn’t you agree?
See, I’m perfectly fine that this is the way my brain is wired and these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Oatmeal Cookies are a perfect example of why. These are the lightest, fluffiest cookies you’ve ever put in your mouth! They’re rich without being over the top, thanks to the peanut butter and chocolate. They’re hearty and have a great chew thanks to the oatmeal and the banana lends moisture and flavor as well. Perfection!
