5-Ingredient Paleo Banana Bread Cookies made with basic pantry essentials. These easy, healthy banana cookies are soft, cinnamony, and make for a perfect healthy treat.

5-Ingredient Paleo Banana Bread Cookies

Hypothetical situation: you have two over-ripe bananas and the need for something soft and chewy. 

I have just the thing.

Enter: banana bread cookies.

These grain-free banana bread cookies are exactly as they sound: a hybrid of your favorite quickbread and – well – cookies. 

Made with almond flour and sweetened mostly with banana and a drizzle of pure maple syrup, these lumps are dairy-free and are a magnificiently healthy treat – fit for breakfast, snack, or dessert.

These gluten-free banana bread cookies require about 5 minutes to prepare, 25-ish minutes to bake, and result in a cookie that is moist, chewy, and perfectly sweet.

Add chocolate chips and/or a sprinkle of sea salt for a real good time!

Let’s bake a batch!

How to Make Grain-Free Banana Bread Cookies:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Peel the bananas and mash them in a bowl until creamy. Add in the egg and pure maple syrup and whisk well. 

Add in the almond flour, cinnamon and sea salt and stir well until the mixture is combined. It will be wet and sticky – this is normal!

Drop about 2 tablespoons of the cookie dough on the parchment-lined baking sheet and form it into a cookie shape. Repeat for the remaining batter.

Bake on the center rack of the preheated oven 20 to 28 minutes, until the cookies are golden-brown around the edges and set up.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Swap the almond flour for hazelnut flour.
  • Add chopped walnuts or pecans.
  • Drizzle with or dip in melted chocolate.

I substituted the egg with flax egg since we are vegetarian. Yet the taste is incredible

When I first made this recipe it didn’t set up very well, but the flavor was good, so I tried it again. The second time I halved the banana, substituted the maple syrup for organic brown sugar and added a tsp of baking powder. They came out great!

I'm glad it worked out for you on the second try...I wonder what happened the first time.
