1 Recipe #15: Strawberry Banana Cookies

Pin It

Eureka, I did it! After much trial and error, I finally managed to create a successful sugar-free cookie recipe that tastes really yummy! The secret is in the bananas, strawberries, & honey, which give the cookies a moist & creamy taste, and also help to bind all the ingredients together. Strawberries and bananas are the perfect complement to one another: The sweet and tart flavors balance each other out quite nicely. Hope you enjoy this recipe!

Strawberry Banana Cookies

1 c. bananas (about 2 bananas), mashed
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. strawberries, chopped into small pieces
1/2 c. butter (1 stick), room temperature
1/2 c. honey
1 large egg, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. walnuts or pecans

Directions: Preheat oven to 375°F. In mixing bowl, thoroughly combine bananas and baking soda, and let it sit for a minute or two so that the acid in the bananas can react with the alkaline (base) salt in the baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). Then gently mix in strawberries & set aside. In a separate bowl, cream the butter & honey together, & then mix in egg & vanilla extract. Next, add flour & salt & stir thoroughly. Pour in fruit mixture & nuts, & mix well. Spoon out a dollop of batter onto a nonstick cookie tray. Bake 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.

Yield: About 30 cookies.
