These gluten-free double chocolate banana cookies are easy to make and taste great!
The combination of bananas and chocolate are perfect for a cookie. Make them gluten-free and they are even better!
And because they have bananas in them they are healthy. Right?!
So maybe they aren’t exactly healthy, but they are healthier than some cookies. They are also a great way to use up some of those overripe bananas that you may have on your counter.
I made these recently when I had too many bananas and they were gone in no time. Even my child who is not a fan of bananas enjoyed these. They make a great dessert, snack, or lunchbox treat.
