Get Ready for the Holidays with Deliciously Easy Dole Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

A festive recipe


It’s that time of year again – the holiday season! And what better way to celebrate than with freshly baked cookies? If you’re looking for a sweet treat that’s also healthy and easy to make, look no further than Dole Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies. These cookies are made with ripe bananas, almond flour, and dark chocolate chips, perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth without sacrificing flavor. These deliciously easy cookies are gluten-free, vegan and loaded with sweet banana flavor and dark chocolate chips. Not to mention, they are so quick and easy to prepare. You'll have sweet treats ready in no time!


First, you’ll need to gather a few simple ingredients – flaxseed meal, almond flour, baking soda, salt, very ripe DOLEÒ Bananas, vanilla extract, gluten-free vegan dark chocolate chips, chopped roasted, unsalted cashews, and sliced almonds. Preheat your oven to 350°F, and line two rimmed baking pans with parchment paper.


Next, stir together the flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl, let it stand for five minutes. Then, whisk together the almond flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork, then stir in the vanilla extract and flaxseed mixture. Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture, and fold in the chocolate chips, cashews, and almonds.


Now comes the fun part: drop spoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared baking pans, about two inches apart. Press down gently on each ball of dough to flatten it to about a half-inch thickness. Bake the cookies for 20 minutes or until they are lightly browned, rotating the pans once halfway through baking. Cool them on the pans for five minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. This recipe should make about 18 cookies.


If you're wondering whether these Dole Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are healthy, we want you to know that they’re a wholesome treat.  They’re better than your average cookie because they’re not just empty calories.  They’re made with whole food ingredients like Dole bananas which are rich in potassium, fiber, and vitamin C, flaxseed which is high in omega-3 fatty acids and almond flour which is a great alternative to wheat flour as it is higher in protein and healthy fats. They’re also perfect for your guests who have dietary restrictions or are following a vegan or gluten free diet. Try out our recipe today and enjoy the sweet aroma and taste of these amazing cookies. Happy Holidays!
