These peanut butter and banana cookies are a great way of using up over ripe bananas. Their texture is so chewy with its gooey, peanutty centre and they smell absolutely amazing when they come out of the oven.

These cookies also have a long shelf life for home baked goods, lasting easily 7-10 days, so they are great to fill up the cookie jar with!

These cookies are great as a moreish snack and the flavour combination of banana and peanut butter means these can work well as a quick breakfast cookie too!

      I usually ask Google for it and they give to me right away. Or if you have 8 you can ask Serie.😁
