Who would have ever thought that three simple ingredients could create something so good? These homemade banana almond flour cookies are another favorite in our house and our boys go through them so quickly! I usually stir some semi-sweet chocolate chips into some of the batter and they taste like banana bread with a chocolatey bite. The chocolate chips add the perfect little extra sweetness, but they’re great even without them!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Here is what you’ll need to make these banana almond flour cookies:

Ingredients to make almond banana cookies
  • Banana: Try to use a banana that has several brown spots. The riper the banana, the sweeter the cookies!
  • Almond Flour: Gluten free flour packed with nutrients and antioxidants. I use the Kirkland brand almond flour from Costco.
  • Cinnamon: For a little extra flavor and spice!

PROCESS

  1. Mash the banana with a fork until smooth.
  2. Add in the almond flour and cinnamon and mix until combined.
  3. Scoop out tablespoon-sized balls and flatten. 
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes, or until the edges are slightly brown.

STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS

Once cooled, store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days, or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. To freeze, store in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag with parchment paper-lined between each cookie to prevent sticking for up to 2 months.

SUBSTITUTIONS

  • Banana: The banana may be replaced with unsweetened applesauce, but the texture would be moister and the cookies would not be as sweet. You may want to add in a little maple syrup for a little sweetness.
  • Almond flour: The almond flour may be replaced with desiccated coconut or old fashioned rolled oats. Check out this recipe for Coconut Cookies or this recipe for Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies!

RECIPE NOTES

  • Make sure to flatten and shape the cookies beforehand because they will not change shape while baking.
  • If you want your cookies to have a smoother texture with no lumps, puree the banana first and then stir in the almond flour.
  • I like to use very ripe bananas with several brown spots. The riper the bananas, the sweeter the cookies.
  • If your mixture is too wet to form into balls, stir in a little more almond flour, one tablespoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
  • I like to add a few chocolate chips to the batter for myself!
