These cookies are really amazing. No oil, no salt, no butter, NO SUGAR!! How can they be so good? This is why I call them Magic Banana Cookies! Anyone I serve these to is amazed by their magical properties and delicious taste. Thanks to my friend Wendy for introducing me to the basic recipe which we have adapted to our own tastes. Add in your own favorite healthy mix-ins (nuts, dried fruit, cinnamon, coconut flakes…the possibilities are endless)! If following a gluten-free diet, then just use certified gluten-free oats. This recipe is also vegan and because of the simple ingredients is great for families with multiple food allergies. Just choose the optional mix-ins that are safe for you.
