Banana snickerdoodle cookies are delicious and tender with a cake-like texture. These are irresistible with a cold glass of milk!
Once again, we had an abundance of brown bananas, so it was time to bake something delicious! My son was in the mood for cookies, so I thought some banana snickerdoodle cookies would be a nice treat. We often bake banana chocolate chip cake, but we were in the mood for cookies this time.
This recipe has a little bit of spice from the nutmeg and cinnamon, and we really liked that flavor combination. The texture of these is so light and cakey…like little tiny banana cakes. If you like soft, pillowy cookies, then this is the recipe for you!
These worked really well with gluten free flour – any store-bought blend should work well. Namaste Perfect Flour Blend, King Arthur, 123 Gluten Free…these are all brands that should work for this recipe.
If you are not gluten free, go ahead and use all-purpose flour, spelt flour, or whole wheat flour for these banana snickerdoodle cookies.
These banana snickerdoodle cookies are:
- nicely spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg
- soft and pillowy
- perfect for an after school snack!
