Peanut Butter, Banana, and Honey Cookies

  • 1-1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp butter (unsalted)
  • 2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups oats

Peanut Butter Honey Glaze:
  • 3 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp honey

  1. Preheat the oven to 350-degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and set aside.
  3. In the mixer bowl, fold butter, sugar and brown sugar and mix until smooth.
  4. Continue mixing while adding peanut butter, honey, vanilla and egg.
  5. Continue mixing and add the banana.
  6. Continue mixing and slowly add the flour mixture.
  7. Continue mixing and add the oats.
  8. Using a cookie scoop, place dough balls 2-inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets or baking mats.
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden and cool on wire racks.
  10. To make the glaze, combine peanut butter, powdered sugar, milk, and honey in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk. If it's too thin, add more sugar. Drizzle glaze over cookies once they've cooled.
