Soft and Chewy Banana Nut Butter Cookies: No sugar, gluten free, EASY!

  • 6 T all natural peanut butter
  • 2 T all natural almond butter
  • 1 small ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 T honey
  • 1/4 t cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a cookie sheet.
  2. Mix all ingredients well.
  3. Drop onto cookie sheet and press down with hand or fork.
  4. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
  5. Let cool and enjoy!
The sweetness in these cookies comes from the banana and honey – and that’s it. No added sugars whatsoever... so if you are looking for a sugar-high kind of cookie, I’m sorry but these aren’t them :( Instead they are rich, moist, and buttery, with a soft slight sweetness, and melt in your mouth delicious!

I made them twice and came up with a different consistencies due to the irregularity of banana size, but I didn't notice any difference in awesome taste!

Every day people should eat a portioned amount of healthy fats – and the sources can be olive oil, avocado, nut butters, or nuts and seeds. These are my “nut butter” dose of healthy fat as each cookie has just under a tablespoon amount of nut butter! I used a mixture of natural almond and natural peanut butter – I’m sure they would work out fine with cashew butter, or even sunflower butter.. or a combination of the lot!

Toddler approved!
