Flourless, Butterless, No Sugar Added Instant Gratification Cookies // Starcapes Recipes Files


1 slightly past ripe banana (mashed)

1 organic egg

2 Tbsp almond butter

1/2 a cup of unsweet cocoa powder (or cacao if you can find it!)

1 pinch of sea salt

1/4 tsp of vanilla extract (or 1/4 of a vanilla bean pod if you have it)

1/8 of a cup of cacao nibs (optional)

-Set the oven to 350

Mash 1 banana until mostly smooth and liquidy. The banana I used is pretty brown spotted and soft, so if you have some bananas going bad those are perfect!

Once that is nice and mashed, mash in 1 egg until everything is mixed together and thickening up a bit. Add vanilla and mix.

Mix in your almond butter, and then add the cocoa powder and salt. Stir until mixed well and the batter looks like a thick brownie batter. (Depending on the ripeness of you banana you might need to add a little more cocoa powder if it looks too loose.) Then mix in the cacao nibs if you want to add them! (I think chopped hazelnuts would be delicious in this too.)

Spoon onto cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes.

When they cook they don't look like normal cookies do, the outside will stay slightly shiny so I suggest touching the tops to make sure that they are slightly firm.

I did a recipe calorie calculator of this and it looks like they end up about 60 calories and 3g of fat for 1 cookie. Not bad, especially considering you aren't eating any icky gluten and they only have natural sugars! They are pretty decadent too so I find I eat less of these than a normal cookie.

Bon Appetit!
That's all for now cosmonauts.
See you in the future,
