Banana Bread Cookies Vegan Gluten-Free
Ingredients needed to make healthy banana bread cookies
The ingredient list is short and sweet, just like these cookies. You will only need a few simple ingredients, all of which i’m sure you already have in your pantry.
Bananas– I used two over-ripe bananas for this recipe, which is about 1 cup.
Peanut butter– All natural runny peanut butter is my favorite, however, you can use any nut or seed butter for this recipe.
Date syrup– I LOVE to bake with date syrup since it is an all natural sweetener. However, you can sub honey, agave, or maple syrup.
Baking powder- These will help the cookies rise during baking time
Chocolate Chips- optional, but also not really… if you know what I mean. I used white chocolate chips for this recipe.
How to make healthy banana bread cookies
Making these banana bread cookies couldn’t be any easier! Just a few easy steps and your cookies will be in the oven!
To start you will want to preheat your oven to 350F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.
In a large bowl, mash your bananas really well. Add in peanut butter and choice of sweetener and mix until well combined.
Add in the baking powder and salt last.
Next, using a cookie scoop, scoop batter onto your prepared baking sheet and top with chocolate chips if desired. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool completely before moving to a cooling rack. These cookies are SOFT, since they don’t have any flour, so they are best stored in the fridge.
