Peanut butter and chocolate is a classic, and it just became so much more fun when paired with banana bread bites! These Banana Bread Cookie Sandwich Bites with Chocolate Peanut Butter Filling are a small, sweet treat to add some pep to your step, and what could knock this flavor combo?
Blend the oats in a food processor or blender until they resemble a fine powder. It is okay if you have large pieces of oat. Add the salt, cinnamon and baking powder.
Mash your bananas. If you don't have ripe bananas, heat your bananas in the oven at 300 degrees F for 10 minutes, then mash.
Mix in the butter to the banana mash, then add the vanilla extract.
Add the oat flour mixture to the bananas. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Form your cookies - they should be about 1 - 1 ½ inches wide and approximately ¼ of an inch thick. The dough does not really melt or change from the original shape you create, so keep this in mind.
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes.
Cream the butter until light and fluffy.
Slowly add the powdered sugar ¼ cup at a time, making sure it is fully incorporated before adding in more sugar.
Add the chocolate peanut butter and mix well. Add in the heavy cream until the frosting is a nice smooth consistency, about 2 - 3 tablespoons.
Top half the cookies with the filling and sandwich them with the remaining cookies.
Keep in an airtight container up to three days.
