These bananas and almond cookies are super easy, need few ingredients and are quick to make. You can serve these cookies as desserts, snacks and even for breakfast since they are healthy and nutritious. Everyone will love having cookies in the morning! So get ready to bake and enjoy!

To replace the flour in this recipe I used almond “flour”. In fact, this is only almonds so finely ground that it looks like flour.

If you wanted to make make your almond flour, all you have to do is put 1 to 2 cups of whole almonds in your blender and mix until you get a very fine texture. If you’re not into the “make your own” aspect of that, almond flour can be found in most grocery stores, but if you want to make it yourself, it can often be more economical and better for the environment.
