Clean Banana Oat Cookies

Rated as 3.85 out of 5 Stars

"Flour-free and sugar-free cookies naturally sweetened with bananas. You can have great cookies for breakfast or any time of the day without any guilt! A little bonus for me was that my 11-year-old brother loved these, even after they had been in the refrigerator!"

Agreed with the need to add more “dry” ingredients so mixed in dry peanut butter powder, more oats, and 1 tsp of nutmeg. Tasted yummy!!

This is a great healthy recipe. I did add some chocolate chips. The only problem I had had was that it was too liquidy so I doubled everything but the milk and eggs and it worked out great.

Very nice-tasting cookies. I added a few tablespoons of Carbquik to thicken them a bit and more vanilla, just according to my taste. The 2 bananas and honey give enough sweetness without adding ...

I agree that batter was too runny. I also added extra oats. I also felt the cooking time was too short. I did add some mini chocolate chips and chopped walnuts. Its a good flour free recipe.

Good start but milk is not needed. I waited to add it after reading the reviews and still needed to add extra oats and flour to thicken it up.
