Heart Healthy Banana Bread Cookies Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the mashed banana, applesauce, brown sugar, egg yolk and vanilla extract and mix until just combined.
Sift together the flours, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt into a separate large bowl. In small batches, add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined.
Lightly spray the parchment paper with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon the dough onto the prepared baking sheet by rounded tablespoonfuls, spacing each mound of dough 2-inches apart. Bake for 10 to 11 minutes, or until the edges are set and the cookies have risen. Allow to cool completely before enjoying.
