I’ve got another sugarless baking experiment for you today, imaginary internet pal!
I know you’ve been there- middle of the afternoon, no snacks handy, craving hits.. and you think to yourself, “how can I make myself a treat before the kids wake up??”
I immediately thought of no-bake cookies (and also thought I was some kind of genius for coming up with that.. DUH, Natalie.). The banana takes the place of refined sugar in this recipe. If you’re not into the whole sweeten-stuff-with-bananas thing, this recipe isn’t for you. The banana isn’t overpowering, but you can taste it in there.
I was a fan, husband was a fan, toddler was a fan. They tasted plenty sweet to us without the sugar, but that could be because we aren’t eating any real sugar and our taste buds have changed. I had a little cookie-fruit-pizza-bite-thingy yesterday morning at MOPS (you’ve been on Pinterest, you know what I’m talking about) and it tasted SO SWEET. A month ago, I would have downed a handful of them and started looking for something else. Hooray for detoxing!
If you’re looking for a quick and refined-sugar free cookie, give this one a try. But it’s okay if you don’t- I know my girl Marianne will (this post is really just for her anyways). Better get crackin’- nap time is almost over..
