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.
This cookie is reminiscent of an oatmeal cookie, but light and fluffy as banana bread. I made them for a family brunch and they were perfect for snacking on all day! These cookies bake at a low temperature for a longer time then most cookies to help give them this banana bread like texture.
