The Kitchn: Mashed banana is the secret to these delicious cookies

Are you ready to be a snack hero in four ingredients? These banana-based mini cookies taste like the delicious chocolate-covered baby of banana bread and coconut macaroons. These cookies come together quickly, are naturally gluten-free and nut-free, and can be made vegan with the right chocolate. And they will totally bust your 3 p.m. slump or make you the coolest mom ever for serving cookies after school.

Since bananas can act as a binder and egg replacer, just a single mashed banana holds these cookies together. Look for a banana with some brown spots on the skin; too green of a banana, and the cookies will be starchy instead of sweet.

The chocolate coating for these cookies is optional but highly recommended. If you're looking to make this a vegan snack look for chocolate chips free of milk solids, Trader Joe's semi-sweet chips are an easy vegan choice.
