  • 1 ripe banana
  • ½ stick (4 Tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 1∕3 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1∕3 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • Measuring spoons
  • Microwave-safe bowl
  • Mixing spoon
  • Sharp knife


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Mash the banana with a fork.
  3. Cut butter in half. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat in microwave 10–15 seconds to soften. Be careful not to melt butter.
  4. In a large bowl, use a mixing spoon to blend butter, banana, and sugar.
  5. Add peanut butter and brown sugar. Continue mixing until completely combined.
  6. Add egg and vanilla. Mix until smooth.

  10. Bake on middle rack of oven until cookies are lightly browned on bottom, about 8–10 minutes. Remove from oven. Let sit 5 minutes to firm up. Remove from tray.
