No egg, Banana, Pineapple and Walnut Drop Cookies [Dairy free, Gluten free, Grains free, Sugar free]

Fotor0828121316

I have tried these amazing Sarah Fragaso inspired cookies, crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, with much success in the past, using banana and almond nut butter as the egg replacer and a small amount of coconut flour to bind.  The banana and nut butter also work for the sweet flavouring, which is not at all sweet, but just sufficient to give these cookies the taste factor in what biscuits are made of.

Adding chopped pineapple as the variant to an apple and the addition of walnuts add to the crunch in this cookie mix and always only used fresh home made, preservative free coconut milk to round off the biscuit batter.

Free of dairy, gluten, grains and sugar, these cookies are effortless to prepare, suitable for vegans and a must have for biscuit lovers. This labour of love effort, eagerly watched over by my 9 year old son who would like to pack these in his school lunch box, makes a fabulous school snack too.  These cookies were made on the larger size with a full tablespoon of batter being dropped onto the baking sheet – a good way to curb the enthusiasm to tuck into many of the smaller sized ones! :) A guilt-free indulgence for your sweet tooth, indeed!
