White Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cupcakes

I had so much fun developing this cupcake last week. Not sure we’ve ever devoured cupcakes so fast around here, lol! They were just good, that’s all there is to it.

I created a simple peanut butter, banana and white chocolate cupcake that is about to rock your taste buds. Not kidding. Can’t wait for you to try these.

Be sure to check out KitchenAid and Cook For The Cure for a wonderful cause! …..AND don’t forget to enter the KitchenAid Giveaway on Picky Palate tomorrow. These goodies are up for grabs.


Pretty simple line up for you. How pretty are those cupcake liners?! I found them at TJ MAXX a few months ago. Score!


I have to admit I still stare at my new Raspberry Ice KitchenAid every time I walk in the kitchen 🙂

How to Make The Best Banana Cupcakes

Let’s get started shall we? Some sugar please!

Two pretty eggs.

Some creamy peanut butter.

A little oil and sour cream.

Two very ripe mashed bananas.

Alright, mix this beautiful batter.

Time for a white chocolate sauce. Pour hot milk over some white chips and stir until melted. You will probably have to microwave a bit longer after stirring the milk in. Be patient, it does happen 🙂  Once it does, add it to the batter and mix.

Add your dry ingredients.

…..and fill em’ up. 3/4 way full works great.

Frost with my simple peanut butter butter cream then top with some crispy banana chips and a white chocolate square. I used THIS white chocolate bar cut into rectangles. I found it in my baking isle at the grocery store.

I love these. Can’t wait to make them again. Enjoy!

    i just put a batch of these in the oven. I followed the recipe exactly but I am a little worried. The batter was really thin. I was wondering if it is supposed to be like that?

  2. backporchpoet77

    I made these for our congregation picnic bake-off and won! They were in such demand, I had to make another batch the next day. Thanks!!

  3. Kathryn

    I made these just after I sent my previous question (I got 16 out of the batch). I took them to a potluck last night, and they were a huge success! The cupcakes were so flavorful and moist and the frosting was divine. Thanks for another hit, Jenny!

  4. These look AMAZING!!! I am so excited to try this recipe; you are making me want a cupcake right now. Seriously; these are beautiful. I can’t wait to meet you in Seattle in a few weeks; Maria has raved over you and I’m so excited to meet you soon!
    Have a great night and again- a fabulous recipe with beautiful photos!

  5. Pauline

    great recipe! however, i’m from the UK, i’m not sure if you have canola oil here, what can be used as a replacement?

  6. Jayelle

    Hi there 🙂 these look ahhh-mazing!!! Now you are probably the most genius food creator I’ve ever seen. I would love to make these cupcakes but unfortunately I am allergic to sodium bicarbonate. Yup. No baking soda, baking powder, leaving…..Stinks. So if anyone could come up with an alternative it would be you. Got any ideas??? You’d be my hero 😉

  7. Jennifer

    These look fantastic and like a winning combination. I love trying out new cupcakes. Lovely wrappers, too!

  8. Sallie Sullivan

    I love that this recipe is for 12 cupcakes. Thank you and looks delish. I have 2 ripe bananas sitting on my counter right now and getting tired of banana bread.

  9. Clover

    It’s not fair that I have a son with a penut allergy. I love all the penut butter desserts, and could eat them everyday.

  10. Shannon

    These look fab! I love the peanut butter frosting I could eat it with spoon, on a banana, on a gram cracker, or on banana bread! In short I haven’t found anything it isn’t good on.

  11. oh my gosh! I love the new look on the blog!! So bright and fresh 🙂

    p.s. The flavor combo in these cupcakes sound *dynamite*

  12. Trina H

    Love banana any type of cake and white is my favourite chocolate marriage made in heaven. Also love the ever so cute patty cases.

    Look forward to some bananas browning soon in my house, then these shall be made, might have to hide some from the kids.

  13. Renee T

    I absolutely am in love with everything about this post – the cupcakes, liners, the mixer (in need of one so bad!), and the raspberry color! Love the new look too. I noticed it late last night when I couldn’t sleep!

    Question: Do you think this would work well as a cake if I were to double or triple the recipe?


    1. Renee T

      I made these on Saturday night to add to the dessert table for Mother’s day and they were a hit! YUMMY!! They will be made again and very soon! Thanks Jenny 🙂

  14. Your redesign is PERFECT, Jenny! Love the little logo between Picky Palate, with the silverware bundle. Cute, cute, cute!

    These cupcakes sound wonderful. The liners ARE very fun, but where did you get the adorable cake stand? 🙂

  15. I love it that you just posted this entry today and already there are over 60 comments. Way to go. Your new header is the best. Bananas, peanut butter and white chocolate… yes, a definite go-together. I think I’m a little jealous of your Kitchen Aid. Mine is RED and wonderful, but I could pass it on to my daughter and live with Raspberry Ice. See you tomorrow.

  16. Your redesign is PERFECT, Jenny! Love the little logo between Picky Palate, with the silverware bundle. Cute, cute, cute!

    These cupcakes sound wonderful. The liners ARE very fun, but where did you get the adorable cake stand?

  17. Marisa

    Oelala! Those cupcakes look delicious! Really like peanut butter and banana, haven’t tried it with white chocolate yet. Saving the recipe, hopefully I can make some people happy with baking them :). Nice new design as well and I just LOVE your pink kitchen aid! I still have this really cheap hand mixer to work with..some day…I’ll be looking at such a great kitchen aid in my kitchen! You need to have dreams haha.

  18. KATHY

    am really anxious to try to make some cupcakes. I’ve tried before and they just didn’t turn out good… don’t know what the secret is, either in the pan or the liners — but I’m so jealous when I see some pretty cupcakes…. 🙂

  19. Kasey

    Yep…I am making these. They look SO good! Pink is my FAVORITE color! I even had pink on my wedding dress 🙂

  20. LOVE the update to your site! Looks great!! And the cupcakes are adorable too! I’ve been finding a lot of great cupcake liners at TJ Maxx/Homegoods lately too! My husband always gets nervous when I tell him I’m going there! LOL

  21. Jennifer

    I love your cupcake liners! I have never seen ones like that before – where did you find them?

  22. Sarah

    I have been waiting all week for this post since I saw you mention it earlier in the week! I made banana chocolate chip cupcakes with PB buttercream last week, they were divine. Can’t wait for the mixer tomorrow! 🙂

  23. I have to admit….both the cupcakes and the KitchenAid make me swoon when I look at them. Oh Jenny, can I live in your kitchen??? Please?

  24. I love all the vibrant pink in the pictures, and well, I’m a fan of aaaaaanything peanut butter so the cupcakes look delish!

  25. melissa

    these look so good!! is there any specific mesasurments for the frosting or just throw it all in till it looks good?
    thanks for all the delious recipes

  26. Caley

    You make the most gorgeous desserts! I just recently found your website, and I am seriously in awe! 🙂 Keep up the great work!

  27. Beautiful mixer! I thought you had a red one? Maybe you do, and now you have a pink, too 🙂 Such cute liners! TJ Maxx has some really fun finds sometimes, you just never know.

    Great recipe, Jenny, & happy Mother’s Day..3rd time mama this year!
