Friends, you are going to LOVE these healthy Almond Butter Banana Cookies!!  They’re gluten-free,  contain zero flour, they’re sweetened naturally with dates and bananas (no refined sugar happening here),  and the flavor will remind you a tad of these muffins.

In some areas, summer is over and the new school year has already begun.  These cookies are healthy enough to feed your kiddos for breakfast when you’re racing out the door in the mornings (I remember those days!), and they make a great snack to pack in lunch bags.
