Gluten Free Chocolate Banana Cookies

My 11 year old loves bananas. I mean she really loves them and loves just about anything I make with them. One of her favorite cookies used to be my banana chocolate cookies and she missed them, so I set out to adapt them to be gluten free.

And what I came up with is a cookie we love. These are not quite as fluffy as the original ones were, but the taste and texture was very close to the old version we loved.

I am so glad I was able to figure out how to make one of my daughter’s favorite cookies gluten free. Adapting recipes takes work and patience, but when you get it right, it is so worth it.

  1. Thank you for sharing your cookie recipe. Bananas and chocolate taste so good together!

    I never did like cake-like cookies, which works out great being gluten-free since most cookies are flat and chewy. Definitely going to give this recipe a try!

  3. Thanks for sharing! My little girl loves bananas too…her favorite fruit. I too do not like cake-like cookies, so this sounds really good! : )

  4. My recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes daughter has been hard to feed (suddenly extra picky and little apetite). She loves chocolate and bananas so these sound like a great snack to use up the snubbed banana. I look forward to trying these with her.

  5. These are a hit! I ran it through a recipe calculator cut the chocolate back so that I could use one cookie for a snack that fit her carb requirements. (Saves money on chocolate too. Using the mini chips kept the chocolate dispersed well.) Despite the sugar– with the oats and banana, I wouldn’t mind serving these for breakfast to get my recently picky eater to eat.
