Peanut Butter-Banana Whoopie Pies

Peanut butter and banana, one of my most favorite flavor combinations. I love it just as much as chocolate and peanut butter. I spotted these in an old Taste of Home magazine and good thing I had a friend in mind to share these with.

These are so easy to make and I love that the recipe only yields 12-14, plenty for our family to sample and share with others. Of course I'm sure they would freeze well if you'd like to save a treat for a rainy day.

Peanut Butter-Banana Whoopie Pies

1 stick butter, softened
3/4 c granulated sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1 egg
1 medium-large banana, mashed
1/2 c buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder

1 stick butter, softened
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 c creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
3 c powdered sugar
splash of milk

In a large bowl, cream together butter and both sugars. Add in egg, banana, buttermilk and vanilla, mix well. Add dry ingredients to bowl and mix until incorporated. Using a medium cookie scoop, drop onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 12 mins or until set. Cool on pan before removing to wire racks.

To make filling: Cream together butter, cream cheese and peanut butter until smooth in a medium-large bowl. Mix in vanilla. Gradually add in powdered sugar, mix well. Add a splash of milk to thin filling to desired consistency.

Spread filling on bottoms of half the cookies, top with remaining cookies. Dust with additional powdered sugar if desired. Makes 12-14. Store in the fridge.


Well we're off to enjoy a nice sun-shiny day with our youngest kiddos. Our kindergartner, Gracie is off from school today due to kindergarten round-up. Has she seriously already completed a year of school?!

I'm hoping to get our patio table and chairs out of storage and get some yard work done. I'd like to even squeeze in a few things for the freezer: twice baked potatoes, green chile pork tacos and try out a new recipe for cream of celery soup. I'll keep you updated. Enjoy your Friday!
