I had a bunch of bananas that were turning brown, but I was in the middle of Christmas Cookie Fest 1.0, so I knew I had to use them for cookies! After Pinteresting and searching for banana cookie recipes, I came across a peanut butter banana cookie recipe from Gimme Some Oven. I’ve updated this recipe and doubled it, so it will make 50-60 fluffy peanut butter banana cookies.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter, sugar, and one banana on medium for 1-2 minutes. Add the last two bananas, peanut butter, eggs, and vanilla and mix for 1-2 minutes on medium. Slowly add the flour mixture while still mixing on medium.
