Banana-Nut Cookies

    This is more like a snack bite than a cookie. It's mildly sweet with a soft texture. I enjoyed the crunchiness of the walnuts in the midst of a soft cookie.

    This is the perfect recipe for those times when you are craving a cookie, but don't have any eggs or butter. I found that by replacing the raisins and walnuts with chocolate chips, I got a cookie that was yummy, easy, and satisfied the craving, but didn't leave me feeling guilty! It is also a great recipe for those who can't have any sugar. A wonderful recipe and very very easy!

    These were good!! And super easy. I always end up with too-ripe bananas and love to find something good to bake them into. Instead of the oil, I used cream cheese (fat-free) as I always do when a recipe calls for a fat (oil or butter). I cut the raisins down to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 cup chocolate chips. Easy to make; love that there's no added sugar or flour. Will make again and soon.

    I made these for my dad, who is diabetic and a pregnant friend who is avoiding simple sugars. They both LOVED them. No, obviously, they don't have that melt in your mouth nature that a sugary, buttery, floury cookie would, but that's the point. These are SO healthy and such a guilt free treat for anyone struggling with a sweet tooth.

    Wow, these are awesome! I was looking online for a banana nut cookie and what a plus to have found this one with no added sugar or flour. I have to say, after I mixed all the ingredients together, I was doubtful that they would be good. The cookie dough just looked like wet oatmeal. I was wrong! These are going to be my new favorites at holidays - especially for diabetics in my family. Thank you so much.

    Great recipe!!! Next time I am going to try making them with chopped dried apricots or chopped dates or chopped figs. Cranberries would be good too. I think any dried fruit would be good and most nuts also or no nuts.

    Nope! Didnt like this at all, I feel like was was just eating uncooked oatmeal pasted together w/water. This was not a good one for me. Not sure what I could have done differently.
