Let’s dive on in and see how simple it is to whip up a batch of these delicious cookies. They are great for snacking, breakfast, and even dessert. There’s no time that’s a bad time for cookies, right?! Give these a shot and see how much everyone loves them.

In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour, baking soda and salt.
Mash in the bananas until combined and no large chunks of banana remain.
Add maple syrup (or maybe syrup substitute) and eggs. Stir well until no dry streaks of almond flour remain.
Add the dark cocoa powder – start with 1 Tablespoon but add more if desired.
Use a cookie scoop to portion out the dough 3″ apart on the prepared baking mat.

Bake for 25-28 minutes until lightly golden brown.
Allow to cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes before attempting to remove to a cooling rack.
How many cookies does this recipe make?
As with most cookie recipes it will really depend on how big or small you make the cookies before baking. You should be able to make about 2 dozen cookies!
If you make them much bigger or smaller they won’t bake properly so I usually suggest erring on the side of the smaller cookies to avoid them staying too mushy in the middle.
