Notes

  • *use certified gf oats to make recipe gluten-free.
  • I get the best results using a frozen banana that’s microwaved. It releases a lot more sweet liquid to help moisten the cookies, but ripe, fresh bananas work fine as well.
  • Forming the cookies into shape with your hands is KEY. Since there’s no flour, the dough is a bit crumbly, but forming them on the sheet pan works wonders.
  • If you prefer a sweeter cookie, you can use sweetened applesauce and sweetened coconut. And don’t skip the extra drizzle of chocolate. 😉
