Let’s go bananas y’all! Cookies are yummy as can be - I mean who doesn’t love cookie? No matter who you are or where you are there is a cookie for you.
So you can imagine how excited I am that we are edging ever so slightly closer to the holiday cookie season, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about it.
Wouldn’t it be great to give the gift of health this upcoming season, simply by giving super healthy and really yummy cookies, instead of the sugar packed blood-sugar spiking sugar cookies? Sounds great, right?!
Well, have you ever heard of sugar-free banana cookies?
If you haven’t, let me share this with you: they’re scrumptious, and even better, they’re sugar-free - and vegan! Yep!
My younger siblings are totally obsessed with banana. Be it a dessert with banana or the plain whole fruit, they can’t get enough, and I don’t blame them. There is something so lovely about that fruity taste.
AND let us not forget that bananas are a SUPER FOOD, containing important nutrients, aiding digestion and helping beat gastrointestinal issues.
Also, they are full of potassium helping your heart health and blood pressure, containing a respectable amount of vitamin C, the manganese in bananas boosting your skin and they contain powerful antioxidants.
Pretty cool stuff, aye?
That why today’s sugar-free September recipe is my Sugar-Free Vegan Banana Cookies Recipe.
They are chewy, yet fluffy, with a wonderful aroma of banana. And they’re really easy to make in a flash - taking only 20 mins from start to finish. Oh, and they’re kid approved and big kid approved!
Just make sure your bananas are as ripe as possible - totally perfect for using up those old bananas you forgot to eat!
Did I mention that there are so many varieties’ you could make of these, the possibilities are literally endless?
Fancy some healthy chocolate chip cookies? Just throw some lilly's sugar free chocolate chips into the batter and boom! Want to go ‘nuts’? Throw some walnuts in for a wonderfully vibrant crunchy health boost, or throw some diced pecans or hazelnuts.
What about sugar-free banana cookie sandwiches?
If you’re craving peanut and banana, simply sandwich this cookie with peanut butter, and you’ll have blissful peanut butter and banana dreams!
Trust me you’ll love em!
I thought of creating this sugar-free vegan banana recipe with my siblings’ banana obsession in mind, but I also wanted to get through that sweet, fruity, yummy flavor, without it being totally overwhelmingly banana.
There was a lot of testing that went into this recipe - I’m talking dozens of bananas - but it didn’t matter after I finally got the method and proportion just right for fluffy yet chewy beautiful sugar-free banana cookies!
My dad thought I had gone BANANAS after he saw the banana decimation, but it was well worth it for the creation of these cookies!
P.S If you are just a total banana obsessive, why not try out one of my other yummy banana recipe, like my Sugar Free Chocolate and Banana Cookies Recipe or my Gluten Free, Sugar Free 3 Ingredient Banana Pancakes!!
With all of that said, here’s your recipe!
Sweet Vegan Banana Cookies (Sugar-Free, No Dairy)
Isabelle McKenzie | Sept 17th 2019
- prep time: 5 mins
- cook time: 15 mins
- total time: 20 mins
2 small bananas, very ripe and spotty
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 1/2 cups flour, sifted
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 drops vanilla creme stevia
1/4 tsp baking soda
HOW TO MAKE IT:
- Heat oven to 350F.
- Peel the bananas and mash in a medium mixing bowl. You want to try to remove all of the lumps but without turning the bananas totally into liquid. Pour in almond milk and stevia and stir to combine.
- Gently fold in 1 cup of flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt - try not to overwork the mixture. Gradually sprinkle in the rest of the flour until you have a think batter/doughy consistency.
- Use a tablespoon to drop large blobs of dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet - you should have about 10 cookies.
- Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until just golden around the edges of the cookies.
