Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you are looking for a chocolate chip cookie with a twist, and one that is a bit healthier than the classic version, these gluten free banana chocolate chip cookies fit the bill.

They are incredibly soft and have a subtle banana flavor to them... not to mention the melty chocolate chips found inside...

Yum. These cookies are delicious. 
If you are looking for something different to make instead of making the same old recipe once again, give them a try!

  1. I love adding bananas to cookies. Haven't tried this exact on though. Will have to add it to my list of new recipes to make.

  2. Thanks for linking up at our Gluten Free Fridays Party! I have tweeted and pinned your entry to our Gluten Free Fridays board on Pinterest! :) I can't wait to see what you share next time!

  3. Hi Bethany,

    I couldn't find contact info anywhere. I write a gluten-free, vegetarian blog. I do a weekly roundup wherein I showcase gluten-free vegetarian recipes that caught my eye in the previous week. It's pretty basic, I list the name of your blog, a link to your recipe, then your photo. If you check out my site, you can see examples of what I mean. I was hoping to include this recipe, and wanted to know if it was OK to use one of your photos?
