This is actually an older recipe of mine that used to be called “truly guilt free cookies” because of their healthy ingredients, but I don’t think the word “guilt” should ever be associated with food. You should never feel guilty about eating anything (unless you like stole it from a child). I’ve also re-photographed the cookies for your viewing pleasure, and put the recipe into a printable format. This is a favorite of mine, so I want to be sure it gets noticed. Enjoy!
You’ve probably seen other “healthy cookie” recipes floating around the internet. They always suck me in but then I’m let down when I see “1 cup sugar” in the ingredients. This recipe tastes just as good but without the refined sugar. The mashed bananas give the dough it’s sweetness, but the raisins are the star of the show. Add the chocolate chips and you’ve hit the trifecta! (Although they won’t be entirely sugar free, but a few chocolate chips is nothing compared to the additional sugar in other cookies!) These are gluten free and dairy free, so just about anyone can enjoy them! They are sweet, moist, and chewy, and you can’t even tell they’re made without sugar or flour.
Sometimes I use almond extract instead of vanilla to create a different flavor. You can also try white chocolate chips with dried cranberries for something festive, or any other add-ins you may think of!
