You don’t need any sugars to make these Banana Bread Cookies, the bananas are sweet enough. Soft and chewy, it’s everyone’s favorite loaf bread in cookie form!

Inspired by my Whole30 experience these cookies have no sugar in them. Sweetened naturally with bananas and apple sauce, these cookies are so comforting and wont leave you with a sugar hangover.

Secret to Sweetness

They key to making these cookies taste sweet is the bananas. I let my bananas get nice and ripe on the counter, before I put them in the freezer. I peeled my two ripe bananas and put them in a freezer bag. When I’m ready to make the cookies I will thaw the bananas completely. At this point there will be lots of liquid in your bag, use it! The liquid helps sweeten this cookies naturally.

    Was looking for a recipe to utilize spare ingredients and found yours. Just put the batter in the fridge now. Doing all I can to not scoop, bake, and eat immediately. Which begs the question… is it that the batter MUST go in the fridge overnight, or is ABLE TO stay there that long? Can’t wait to try them. Thanks!

      I like to keep them in the fridge that way the oats can soak up as much liquid as possible, the more of that yummy banana they absorb they sweeter they get!
