The banana cookies are so light and moist and they pair so beautifully with the fluffy peanut butter filling.  I added some chocolate ganache on top because, well, chocolate makes everything better! Thee are such a fun alternative to cupcakes or cookies, and they look so impressive with the glossy chocolate dripping over the top.

Ingredients

Ganache

  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup milk or cream

Filling

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-4 tablespoons milk or cream

Whoopie Pies

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar (packed)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour

Directions

Whoopie Pies
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350
In a mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugar, Add the bananas, vanilla, and salt and mix well. Mix in the eggs. Add the baking soda and slowly add the flour, mixing just until incorporated.
Drop by heaping spoonfuls onto a baking sheet with 2-3" between them. (I like to use a silicone baking mat to help prevent too much spreading.)
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool a few minutes on the pan before transferring to a cooing rack.
Filling
Step 2
In a mixing bowl beat butter, peanut butter, and vanilla until smooth. Add powdered sugar and 2 TBS milk and beat well. If too thick add more milk 1TBS at a time.
Spread a thick layer onto half of the cooled whoopie pies. Top with the plain halves.
Ganache
Step 3
Heat the milk in a small bowl for about 1 minute. Add chocolate chips and let sit for 2 minutes. Stir well until smooth. Carefully pour spoonfuls of ganache over each whoopie pie.
Store in a sealed container.

    These sound fantastic! But they do not have to be refrigerated because of the filling having milk?

    • Stephanie says:

      Hi Ashlie, generally I do not refrigerate them if they will be consumed within 24 hours. Otherwise, go ahead and put them in the fridge – they’ll last longer :)
