Gluten-Free Banana Cookies


Cookies. Is it all kids, or just mine that love cookies? I mean, it doesn’t matter what kind of cookie, just the fact that it’s a cookie makes it the best thing ever.

I have to agree with them though, I like cookies pretty well myself, and these cookies are pretty tasty! We love all kinds of gluten-free cookies.

We seem to occasionally find ourselves inundated with overripe bananas, and while I LOVE gluten-free banana bread, it takes much longer to bake, and sometimes, you just want something a little different, ya know?

So, you make what is basically banana bread in cookie form.

Tastes yummy + easy for the kids to snack on = total mom win.

This recipe makes a pretty big batch, but even so, between the kids, my husband, and well, myself (ahem), they didn’t last the day.

Recipe officially added to the family repertoire.

  1. The gluten-free banana cookies are delicious. I followed the instructions other than halving the recipe as I only had a small banana to work with.

    The cookies are moist and have just the right amount of sugar.
