15 Easy Peanut Butter and Banana Dessert Recipes and Ideas

1. Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Start your day right with this creamy and delicious peanut butter and banana smoothie.

It’s so sweet and yummy, it’s almost like a milkshake. Fortunately, it’s much healthier.

You can whip it up in just five minutes, and you’ll need only four ingredients: bananas, milk, peanut butter, and ice cubes.

Add honey if you want a sweeter smoothie, or use frozen bananas and skip the ice for something ridiculously indulgent.

Either way, this smoothie recipe is a winner.

2. Gourmet Banana Peanut Butter Sandwich

Peanut butter and banana sandwiches were a staple during my childhood. My grandma made them all the time, and I still crave them at least once a week.

This recipe gives the traditional sandwich a glow-up, adding honey (or maple syrup) and walnuts for crunch. 

I love the blend of peanut and almond butters with cinnamon, but you can use just one of those if you prefer.

And if you really want to make this special, try adding a few slices of crispy bacon! Yum!

3. Peanut Butter Banana Brownies

Thick, fudgy, soft, and chewy, these brownies have the most heavenly peanut butter swirl topping.

You can make them in 40 minutes with a handful of ingredients. And each piece is jam-packed with rich, sweet flavor.

Plus, they only have 200 calories per serving!

We all know how tasty chocolate and peanut butter are together, right? Well, adding bananas makes them even better.

Don’t take my word for it, though. Try them for yourself. You’ll be thrilled you did. 

4. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Nice Cream

Nope, that’s not a typo. It’s supposed to say nice cream.

This cold, creamy treat is much more nutritious than typical ice cream. It’s 100% dairy-free (with the proper chocolate chips) and made with healthy ingredients.

All you’ll need to make it are bananas, natural peanut butter, and almond milk.

It’s a delightful, vegan-friendly treat that looks, feels, and tastes just like ice cream.

Try it if you want a semi-healthy way to cool down this summer.

5. Peanut Butter Pretzel Nice Cream Sandwiches

You’ll fall in love with nice cream after just one bite. And from there, it only gets better.

Take these crunchy nice cream sandwiches, for example!

The filling uses the same ingredients as above, but you’ll swap coconut oil for almond milk. Then, sandwich it between two square pretzels.

Dip them in melted chocolate, and freeze for at least 10 minutes.

Feel free to use your favorite cookies here, too. I love chocolate chip, but peanut butter cookies would make them extra special!

6. Peanut Butter Banana Pie

No-bake pies are some of my favorites – and not just because they’re so easy to make (though that’s a point in their favor).

I love them because they’re light, fluffy, creamy, and cool. And this peanut butter banana pie is no exception.

I never met Elvis, but I bet he would’ve adored this pie. 

7. Chunky Monkey Banana Muffins

Who could say no to a chunky monkey banana muffin? The name alone is worth making a batch!

Luckily, a fun name isn’t all they have going for them. 

They’re dense, tender, filling, sweet, and scrumptious. They’re also highly nutty, so you’ll need to enjoy peanut butter to appreciate them. 

That said, the bananas help lighten the overall flavor. And you’ll love the huge chunks of gooey chocolate. 

8. Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bites

Want a fun, easy-to-make, low-calorie snack? Try these chocolate, peanut butter, and banana bites. 

You can make over two dozen in 15 minutes or less. Plus, you’ll only need four ingredients to make them!

Each one is a tiny peanut butter sandwich, using banana slices as ‘bread.’ 

Dip them in chocolate, and they’re ready to serve. How easy is that?

9. Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

Oatmeal is a nutritious breakfast any day of the week. But, unfortunately, it can get a little boring if you have it too often. 

So, why not jazz up your morning bowl of oats with peanut butter and banana?

It’s a nutty, cinnamony breakfast bowl full of sweet, soft banana slices. There’s also chia seeds for extra nutrients! 

10. Banana Whoopie Pies with Peanut Butter Frosting

These banana whoopie pies with peanut butter frosting will make you feel like a kid again! They’re easy to make and taste delicious. 

Soft and fluffy banana-flavored cakes with a creamy peanut butter frosting? Seriously – what’s not to love? 

They’re perfect for any occasion, and the kids will love helping you make (and eat) them.

11. Peanut Butter Cake with a Brownie Crust

This isn’t any old peanut butter cake. Instead, it’s a vegan, no-bake peanut butter cake with a decadent brownie crust. 

And yes, it’s as good as it sounds!

I’d call the peanut butter and banana filling creamy, but that doesn’t do it justice. Silky, smooth, and luscious are closer to the truth. 

Trust me on this: if you don’t tell people this is vegan, they’ll never know.

12. Peanut Butter Banana Waffles

If I could start every morning with waffles, I would. That’s how much I love them.

And these sweet, cinnamony, and nutty banana waffles are some of my favorites. 

They taste so good, you can easily eat them without toppings. They also crisp up so nicely around the edges.

Even better, you can make a batch in just 20 minutes. So really, there’s no excuse!

13. Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

If you’re anything like me, you always have a few too-ripe bananas sitting around.

And what better way to use them than in baking?!

After all, there’s nothing quite like the smell of fresh banana bread baking in the oven.

Of course, this recipe is extra special, calling for peanut butter, cinnamon, and chocolate chips. 

It still has the same phenomenal texture. However, the peanut butter gives it a richer, earthier flavor that’s hard not to love.

14. Peanut Butter Banana Cookies 

Do you need a low-carb way to enjoy cookies? Check out this recipe for two-ingredient peanut butter and banana cookies.

I’ll bet you can guess what the two ingredients are, huh?

Seriously, though, peanut butter and bananas are all you’ll need. They’re soft, chewy cookies with crisp edges and plenty of peanut butter flavor.

And did I mention they only have three net carbs per serving? Oh yeah! 

15. Peanut Butter Banana Greek Yogurt Bowl

Oatmeal isn’t the only thing you can jazz up with peanut butter and bananas. They’ll also take your morning bowl of yogurt to a whole new level. 

I don’t know what this five-ingredient yogurt bowl has more of – protein or flavor!

Either way, it’s a great way to start your morning. And the kids will love it, too.
