Peanut Butter Biscotti recipe with banana and a peanut butter icing drizzled on top. Peanut butter and banana are a winning combination and here they are teamed up in a biscotti Italian cookie!
Everybody knows Elvis’ favorite food was peanut butter & banana sandwiches, well this is my Italian cookie version of his favorite treat. Why not rock your own Banana Peanut Butter Biscotti this weekend, and shake things up. If your kids love them as much as my daughter did, you will quickly escalate to in-home-rock-star status… well, at least for a few fleeting minutes.
These biscotti would be great served with my Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate

Peanut Butter Biscotti
- 3 large eggs
- 1 large mashed banana
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
- 2 ¾ cups flour
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. kosher salt
Peanut Butter Glaze
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
- 3/4 cup confectionery sugar
- 2-3 tbs. water
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Beat the eggs, in large mixing bowl.
- Add banana, vanilla & peanut butter, and beat on high, until well mixed.
- In a separate bowl mix the remaining (dry) ingredients.
- Add the dry mix slowly to the wet mix, while beating.
- Dough will be sticky, dump onto well floured surface, and form into log approx. a foot long.
- Transfer to baking sheet, and form the log to about 3 inch wide, and an inch or two from pan ends.
- Bake for 30-35 mins., until golden brown around edges and semi-firm in middle.
- Place the log on rack to cool, for about 10 mins, and reduce oven temp to 300°.
- Once cool enough to comfortably handle, cut 3/4 inch slices.
- Place slices on parchment lined baking sheet and bake for approx 25 mins.
- After the slices are cool, whisk together creamy peanut butter, confectionery sugar and water, to make glaze.
- Drizzle over the biscotti ( I used a squeeze bottle for this). Let set a few hours until the glaze is firm, before serving.
