What is it about bananas and baked goods?
I see overripe bananas and instantly think of banana bread. But I’ve been trying out sugar free and now gluten free recipes (for the little one) and came across this super simple recipe. It makes use of the sweetness of ripe bananas but doesn’t require extra sugar or flour. I love that it’s made with oats and basically contains ingredients I already have at home. It’s our newest snack at home and one I easily whip up in the morning. I never thought that I would be concerned with gluten-free baked goods since I adore making and easting dessert, but since the little one may be a little sensitive to bread, I am trying my hand at wheat and gluten-free cooking. I’m pretty happy with these gluten-free, sugar-free banana oatmeal cookies, especially with the addition of dark chocolate chunks (even the husband munches a few of them then!)
Now j just can’t wait for the next batch of bananas to ripen!
