Seriously these cookies were amazing!
Chocolatey, fudgey, banana bread like, chock full of peanut butter cups, and Reese's pieces...
do I have you convinced you NEED to bake these cookies in the very near future???
I had to break out the stretchy pants after these because I Could.Not.Stop!!!
One after the other kept going into my mouth,
and I didn't even care...seriously that's what the pants were for!
You did see how many peanut butter cups and pieces are in these, right?
Don't mess with my and my Reese's...
and after seeing that my most popular recipes involve peanut butter and Reese's of some sort...
I'm thinking you guys like those candies just as much as I do!
So, really, these cookies were for you. I'm such a giver!
I just had to taste test them to be sure they were ok for you. (hee hee)
And now that there are no cookies left...I guess you better go bake your own...
and then go hide in a closet with a big plateful
because after you taste these banana Reese's cookies...
you won't want to do anything but stuff your face with them.

Still craving more Reese's?
Maybe one I can tempt you with one of these recipes...
We just made these using Pilsbury Devil's Mix, 60% cocoa chocolate chips and Reese's Pieces- oh my chocolate overload. I am in love.
Oh boy, that combo with all the dark chocolate sounds awesome!!! I am so glad to hear you guys enjoyed them 🙂
would love to try these but to you make the cake mix how its supposed to be made then add everything or just add the cake mix and not the eggs or whatever to make a cake... sorry just want to make sure i do it right
Hi, Casey. You will be only using the dry cake mix. Do not make the cake mix like the box says or it won't hold up! If you have any other questions, definitely ask:-)
I tried these and they did not turn out well at all. They have a weird doughy texture :/
Oh Melissa I am so sorry to hear this. I have made them a few times and each time has been fine. Did you try baking them a little bit longer? I know ovens are all different:-(
Hi there! I just made these and they are super yummy. However, mine were consistently gooey also, no matter how long I baked them. After cooling on the racks they solidified a little more, but still slightly mushy. I didn't want to bake them anymore in case it burned them. I'm not sure what I could have done differently. Do you mind sharing what kind of cake mix you used? Maybe that has something to do with it? Either way, it won't stop me from eating them! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I also have my own site... http://www.theoptimisticbaker.com Feel free to check it out some time! I'm always pinning recipes from this site 🙂
Hi, Becky. I just used a generic cake mix...that shouldn't have made any difference. I just made these again using a caramel cake with caramel pieces and they worked fine too. Maybe just bake them a minute or two longer...all ovens bake slightly different.
These cookies look so good! Banana + Chocolate - what a combination!
Cheerios and Lattes
These look absolutely delish, my husband already told me to put it on the list of things to make. Thank you for sharing with us on Saturday Show and Tell. I hope you'll join us again this week!
These look amazingly delicious! I am sooo gonna try this recipe. Thanks for stopping by my blog & have a great day 🙂
