Banana and Peanut Butter Jam Drops

Banana and Peanut Butter Jam Drops
These delicious biscuits are easy to make and use just a few basic ingredients.

They have the perfect amount of crunch on the outside while remaining nice and soft in the middle.

You can use any kind of nut butter for this one, including this easy home made Almond Butter. You can also substitute store-bought jam for this healthy and super fast Berry Chia Jam.


  • 1 small banana, mashed
  • 100g peanut butter
  • 50g butter
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1 tbsp jam


Preheat oven to 180 C (355 F) and line a baking tray with baking paper.

Melt butter and peanut butter together in a pot on the stove (low heat). Stir constantly to avoid burning.

Once melted, put peanut butter mixture into a mixing bowl.

Add mashed banana and mix.

Add flour and mix until it forms a soft dough.

Roll tablespoon sized amounts into balls and place on prepared baking tray, evenly spaced.

Flatten them gently, then carefully press a finger into the middle of each to make small dents.

Put a little bit of jam into each one.

Bake for approximately 16 minutes, or until the edges are just starting to turn golden brown.

Allow to cool at room temperature, then store in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days.

Makes 12.


  • Bananas are a fantastic ingredient in toddler cooking, as they are a healthy way of sweetening any recipe without adding refined sugar. Mashed banana can also be used in place of butter or oil to keep cakes and muffins moist.
