These peanut butter banana cookie cups are topped with meringue and are gluten free, have no butter and are SO easy to make. These are perfect for kids and adults!
Things that I learned at a very early age:
- Peanut butter should be its own food group.
- Peanut butter also pairs REALLY well with banana. Considering I ate a Peanut butter and banana sandwich EVERY day for lunch, I learned that lesson REAL well.
- Chocolate…it makes E’RYTHANG better.
Today I am tying all these life lessons up into one adorable, mini package.
A package that you can eat. Remember those baked apples? You know I love eat-able packages.
A package that involves all of the above mentioned items AND gluten free cookies.
And a package that is completely gluten and butter free!
The younger me and the current (old) me are doing a serious fist pump over here. I am hoping that you are joining me.
Fist pumping alone just looks weird.
The peanut butter banana cookie part of these here cookie cups are a recipe that I developed from some peanut butter oatmeal cookie cups.
Apparently I am 5 and can’t stop making child themed cookie cups. I’m okay with this. You too?
Then I was inspired by my aforementioned life lessons, so I decided to fill those babies up with fresh banana and thick, creamy peanut butter. Be still my heart.
We could have left it there. But, I wanted these to be like a surprise party fo’ yo’ taste buds.
I pulled some more inspiration (because I seem to be all about that today) from my Grandma, because she makes a MEAN Lemon Meringue Pie. But, if we’re being honest, what Grandma doesn’t make good pie?
I think it runs through their VEINS.
That sounds painful. The things to look forward to when we get older amIright?
I call it meringue, but we really just call it what it is: A ninja disguise to cover the deliciousness that is inside these Peanut Butter Banana Cookie Cups.
WHABAM. Taste buds, consider yourself surprised. With deliciousness.
Also, consider yourselves about to take a vacation to Yum Central.
Peanut butter. Chocolate. Banana. COOKIES.
