Irresistible Banana Bread Cookies

I’ve been trying to find healthy’ish cookie recipes that double as quick breakfasts. As a nursing mama with a busy toddler and a hungry baby, I need quick, delicious food on hand to stop me from grabbing just coffee for breakfast (or chocolate treats in the middle of the day). These irresistible banana bread cookies are the answer. They are enough like muffins that you can eat them for breakfast, but shaped like cookies so they seem like a treat! They are gluten-free and nearly refined sugar free (except for the chocolate chips, which you could technically leave out, but you definitely shouldn’t). Hope you like them as much as I do!
