I am so excited to be sharing these cookies with you! let’s be honest, everyone needs a cookie (and a stiff drink) after the whirlwind that is thanksgiving. I don’t have the drinks, but I can provide the cookies… cookies with bananas! you know, to help with stuffing detox and getting back into normal pants.
banana cookies w/ cinnamon glaze
3 ripe bananas
½ cup granulated sugar (such as cane sugar, coconut sugar)
½ cup melted coconut oil
1 tsp vanilla
¾ cup coconut flour
¼ cup tapioca flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup chopped nuts (I used pecans and walnuts)
for the glaze
½ cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp milk (almond, coconut, dairy)
½ tsp cinnamon
preheat oven to 350. line a sheet tray with a silpat or parchment paper. in a large mixing bowl, beat bananas until a chunky puree is formed. mix in melted coconut oil and sugar. crack eggs into a small bowl, whisk, and pour into batter, mixing until combined. add vanilla and mix. Pour in coconut flour, tapioca flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. slowly mix until combined. fold in chopped nuts.
using a spoon, scoop batter onto prepared sheet tray and shape cookies. they will not spread, so shape them how you want them to come out. I flattened the scoops of dough to form flat topped cookies (easier for glazing).
bake 15 minutes and remove from oven, leaving cookies on the sheet tray for 2 minutes. transfer to cooling rack.
while the cookies are baking, prepare the glaze by stirring all ingredients together in a small dish. once cookies are cool, spoon and spread glaze over cookies.
