These Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie Bowls for Two have NO added sugar and are sweetened solely with banana!
As a kid, I loved mashed banana.
Among various snacks, including apples with sunflower seeds, my mom would often make a plate of mashed banana for me. I don't think I ate them any other way until I was in the double digits!
Though my kids don't like them mashed, they still all love bananas.
Jade has had a rocky relationship with them over the years, as have I, but we are both currently doing well with one or two a week.
They are such great, convenient snacks, and they're also wonderful for sweetening smoothies and treats...assuming you want the banana taste.
If you don't want that banana flavor, this cookie may not be for you, as it's this treat's sole source of sweetness.
I've paired it with some almond butter and oat flour (or I use almond meal for the hubs), along with a modest bit of baking powder, for a gooey, no sugar added delight.
I top this with Pascha's 85% dark chocolate chips, but to keep it totally sugar-free, just use the unsweetened chocolate chips (which Pascha also sells). No affiliation, I just like their ingredients! 🙂
Be sure to use a rather large, brown-spotted banana for best texture and flavor. As the banana and almond butter are the sole sources of 'wet' ingredients, this recipe is dependent upon them for proper moistness.
I like to add in a few dashes of cinnamon for blood sugar properties and flavor, but that is optional.
This recipe makes two good servings that you'll want to share with someone you love! ♥♥
