Everyone has been in this situation: you bought delicious, very yellow bananas and all of a sudden, you’re left with a few that look totally dead in your fruit bowl. So what do you do with them? Throw them away? Heck no! My solution for you? Banana cookies! Yes, this really is a thing - you don’t have to make banana bread every time.
Switch it up! These easy to make cookies are dairy free and vegan, plus it only takes 10 minutes to bake. So all in all, what do you have to lose?
The cookies are soft and melt in your mouth. They have a lovely fragrance of banana and my family finished them within a few minutes! In fact, I had to make another batch just to take pictures!
The other ingredients in these yummy cookies are unsweetened shredded coconut, tahini and coconut oil.
