Chocolate Chip Banana FlufferNutter Sandwich Cookies |

Before I made these cookie I really did not know what a fluffernutter was.

Here is the truth, I am not the biggest marshmallow person. Okay wait, warm marshmallows with chocolate? Yes. Gooey, sticky, still warm Rice Krispie Treats with maybe a little chocolate mixed in? Yes. But just marshmallows alone? No. I can’t do it, it’s too sugary and too boring.

And I always think, I would rather be eating something else.Chocolate Chip Banana FlufferNutter Sandwich Cookies |

Also, up until a few months ago when I made these Toasted Coconut Caramel Peanut Butter Snickers Bars I had no idea marshmallow fluff even existed.

I had never bought it before and I never had any growing up. My mom was strictly a chocolate cake, chocolate chip cookie, Special K Bars, peacan pie, chocolate chip cookie pie and the occasional Rice Krispie Treat kind of baker. Marshmallows were saved for S’mores and Rice Krispie Treats.

Oh and sweet potato casserole on Thanksgiving!

It was only once I started blogging that I realized there is about a million and one recipes out there calling for marshmallows and or marshmallow fluff.

And I mean marshmallow frosting?

Yeah, I definitely did not know that existed.

Welp, now I do!!

And oh boy am I excited about it. I mean wasn’t it just two weeks ago that I posted these S’more Milk Chocolate Mousse filled Chocolate Cups with Marshmallow Frosting? Yeah, it was.

I am like a kid with a new toy. Just swap the toy for marshmallow frosting.

So I researched what the heck a fluffernutter sandwich was.

Peanut butter and marshmallow fluff sandwiched between two pieces of bread. Sounds ok, but probably not my thing. So I kicked up the fluffernutter and added bananas and chocolate.

It just made sense.

Not sure if you can still call this a fluffernutter, but I’m going with it, and what ever you want to call it, it’s good!!

They are pretty simple to make, but the tricky part is keeping the sandwiches from sliding to one side while the marshmallow filling dries. When the filling is wet, the top cookie wants to slide off. I found that if you line the cookies up in rows so that they are touching and all sitting up right, the cookies are all forced to stay in position and not slide. This way they stay aligned and pretty!

Marshmallow filling

  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer (or use a hand held) cream together the butter, brown sugar and powdered sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the peanut butter and egg and beat until smooth and combined. Add the mashed banana and vanilla, beating until smooth.
  • Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silpats.
  • When the oven is preheated drop about two teaspoons dough onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake for 7 to 10 minutes and do not over cook. If anything undercook. Cool completely before filling.
  • To make the filling, place the egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar in the heatproof bowl of an electric mixer (or if you do not have a stand mixer use a regular heat proof bowl). Set over a saucepan with simmering water. Whisk constantly until sugar is dissolved and whites are warm to the touch, 4 minutes.
  • Transfer the bowl to stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, and beat, starting on low speed, gradually increasing to high, until stiff, glossy peaks form, 5 to 7 minutes. Add vanilla, and mix until combined.
  • To fill the cookies flip half the cookies upside so the flat side is facing up. Spoon or pipe about 2 teaspoons of the marshmallow frosting onto all the cookies, leaving about 1/4 inch border. Wait 5 to 10 minutes and then top each cookie with it's other half. Line the cookies up in rows on a balking sheet and let the frosting set completely, about 1 hour. Try to tightly line the cookies up so that they are upright and strait. Some of my cookies wanted to slide to the side and I ended up with a few cookies that were crooked.
  • Store in an airtight container.

    1. Hi thx for this amazing cookie recipe. I would love to make these. However, I along with some other people have a marshmellow allergy. Any suggestions what I can substitute to add in the middle? Plz advice. Thx ???.

      1. Hi Sylvia,
        You could do peanut butter, chocolate, or even ice cream in the middle. I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan

  1. Absolutely Amazingly Awesome cookies!!! I made these as a “Special Treat” for some friends that helped me move an outdoor playset into my back yard, and I believe they will have to be in my regular rotation of sweet offerings from now on…my family was upset that they “only got one”! Thank you for coming up with this brilliant combo!

    1. SO happy these cookies are a hit with you and your friends!! Thanks for making them and letting me how much you loved them. Makes my night! 🙂

  2. Would removing the peanut butter screw up the cookie recipe? As much as I looooove the stuff my daughter is allergic but I’d still love to try these! Thanks 🙂

  3. I remember my classmates bringing fluffernutters to lunch when I was a kid, but my mom would never let me have them! PB+Fluff is a match made in heaven, but adding chocolate and bananas & chocolate brings it to a whole new level! Drool!

  4. Oh my goodness these look incredible! My kids would go nuts for these, that is if I save them any! 😉

  5. Man, homemade marshmallow filling? In a chocolate banana cookie? You did just kick the fluffernutter thing up a notch! Confession time: I’ve never had anyhing fluffernutter (I know, I know) and I do think its because marshmallows are for smores alone (by itself is just not worth it ever) But these? I think I could handle a dozen of them:)

    1. LOL! I was the same way until these cookies. They are my very first fluffernutter!! I loved them!!

      Thanks Mary!

  6. Bananas in cookies are delicious but add fluffernutter…holy moley. I don’t like marshmallows out of the bag but I love the marshmallow cream you have goin’ here.

    1. Thank you so much, Laura! I kind of hated these photos, so I am happy you like them!! My light has been all funky lately!

  7. Oh my gosh. You made your own fluff. That is amazing. I think I might have to scream.
    Either that, or make a batch of it, put it in an empty Miracle Whip container and eat it in public. Okay, not really. But seriously, that is. so. amazing.
    I love peanut butter + fluff sandwiches *guilty pleasure* But it’s been probably ten years since I’ve actually eaten one. haha! These cookie sandwiches look so much tastier and fun! I love the addition of chocolate. <3 perfecto.
    Pinned! 😀
