These are the perfect anytime snack for the kiddos. Whole grain cookies that have no added sugar, oil, salt, flour, or alcohol. All mom approved!
My grandbaby wanted some cookies and the delicious were created. Literally, all I had was some oats, a ripe banana, and dates to whip up these cookies with a few spices. And they were a hit with the kiddos.
All simple ingredients. I used Vanilla Bean Powder so the cookies would be alcohol-free, but feel free to use vanilla extract just double the amount. Fresh or canned pineapple chunks can be used. If using canned, be sure the chunks are in juice and not syrup.
So the next time you or the kiddos want a quick sweet snack, whip up these tasty bites. They will sure to delight.
