Ingredients

Optional Add-ins

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • extra 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350℉ and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  • Add the almond flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon to a bowl and mix well
  • Mash the bananas with a fork and add them to the dry ingredients (I mash, then measure)
  • Add the maple syrup
  • Mix until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated
  • Use a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto the baking sheet
  • Gently flatten the cookies with a fork or back of a spoon.
  • Bake for 26-30 minutes until the middles have set and aren't wet (mine were perfect at 28 minutes)
  • After the cookies come out of the oven, place them on a wire rack to cool
  • Let the cookies come to room temperature before eating
  • Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days

Notes

These cookies won't spread too much so I put all 15 cookies on one baking sheet, so I won't have to bake 2 batches.
For this recipe I used a 1.5 tablespoon cookie scoop.
**These cookies are almost entirely sweetened by bananas, so make sure your bananas are overripe!**
