These Almond Butter Banana Cookies are grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free - making them Whole30 compliant! These are a great healthy snack option for adults and kids alike.
HELLO, Day 15. Part of me can't believe I've made it this far on the Whole30 program, another part of me wonders what the heck I'm thinking and a different part of me feels amazing. I flip between these three feelings throughout the day. According to what I've read, my sugar cravings should begin to subside soon. So far NO good on that. I made these Almond Butter Banana Cookies a few days ago so I could get a teensy taste of that sugar I love so much. Except there is zero added sugar in these babies. Zilch.
The cocoa gives these healthy cookies a chocolatey zing and the bananas and raisins give a boost to the sweetness. Considering these are grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free AND sugar-free, they are pretty amazing. I mean. I'd rather eat all 75 cookies in Cookie Remix first, but these would definitely be number 76. (That's my sugar-loving personality talking.)
Promise me that you won't write these off at first glance, if you know what I mean.
They taste far better than they look and if you are following the Whole30 program, I promise you will be happy to pop a few of these into your mouth pronto.
Swap the raisins out for a different dried fruit, but check the ingredients first to make sure no sugar has been added. Also, add chopped cashews, pistacchio or macadamia nuts, if nuts are your thing. Applesauce or shredded carrots would taste great in these, as well. You really cannot mess them up.
