I recently discovered that I was gluten intolerant, so I have been learning to bake all over again. These cookies were born of a need to discover a fast and nutritious alternative to toast or cereal for breakfast. They are a tasty way to use leftover bananas. These are flour free, sugar free and dairy free. They stay moist at room temperature if stored in a sealed container. These cookies will probably keep for a week, however, everyone loves them, so, I can never keep them in the house for that long. I freeze bananas, peel and all, if they are bruised or over ripe. For this recipe, I cut the frozen bananas into two-inch sections and allow them to partially thaw, so that they are easier to peel and pop them right in the food processor.
