Gluten Free, Vegan, Low Carb, Low Sugar
These cookies are made using only whole food ingredients, no refined sugars, no refined or white flours, and are low in sugar. Need we say more?! Oh yes, most importantly, they taste AMAZING!! Sort of like a mini banana bread but in cookie form with a twist. The banana keeps these cookies moist for several days when you store them in an airtight container.
You can substitute chopped walnuts to cut out the chocolate and add some heart healthy protein. Or raisins/craisins would taste equally as good if you are into that kind of stuff:)
