These healthy, delicious cookies are made with only simple and natural ingredients. Almond butter, banana, egg, vanilla, and a little maple syrup is basically all you need to make these cookies. Yet what you get is a puffy, soft, cake-like treat. It’s kind of like magic.

This makes them taste like a banana chocolate chip cake. And while adding the chocolate chips make the cookies a little less healthy, they’re still much better for you than your average cookie.
