Honeyed Banana Berry Cake Cookies…4 Ingredients!

Ok, someone stop me from making more cookies 🙂  But wait, these only have 4 ingredients so let me share these with before I’m banned.

The boys and I were up early Monday morning and decided to make these perfectly simple/no butter/no sugar cookies. Instead of butter I had the boys mash up 4 bananas, add some creamed honey that my husband found from Trader Joes then toss in some dried blueberries. I had to be honest with the boys and said…..”I have no idea if these are going to turn out, but I have a great feeling they will be delicious!”

We kept watching the oven as the timer was ticking away and sure enough, our little experiment was a total success! Now, you should know, these are very cake-like and very soft. So, if you are not a soft kind of cookie lover these are not for you. However, if you are a soft cookie lover, look out because these are awesome! Our favorite way to eat them was when we put them in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or so. Give it a try 🙂

I also used a sugar free cake mix that I had on hand, worked out great, however any cake mix will do. Hope you enjoy this easy, fun, get your kids in the kitchen cookie recipe.

Here is your line up. If you can’t find creamed honey, use 2 Tablespoons regular honey instead 🙂

We LOVE this creamed honey. Spread it over warm toast and you don’t even need butter. It’s awesome, hope you can find some 🙂

Here are my little stinkers getting right to work.

Banana mashing party!

More helping 🙂

Nothing like baking in PJ’s 🙂

Ahh, the reward 🙂

This is the best part!

I can’t tell you how happy I was to see these turn out! Yipee!

Taste testers….Approved!

    I have an abundance!! of ripe bananas and today i got creative and made a vegan GF muffin recipe with them that I’m posting in the morning.

    I am looking forward to seeing you…thanks to Marla for playing matchmaker 🙂

    Um, NO do not stop making cookies! I need to live vicariously through your cookies. No really. Keeps me sane. Cookies…yum.

    Super creative idea. These will definitely be in my arsenal for the next time someone shows up unannounced etc. And your boys are darling!!

    Question: What are good substitutes for butter in baking? I know I’ve seen applesauce and/or yogurt used before but not sure how much to put in. For example, if a recipe calls for 2 sticks of butter, how much applesauce/yogurt would you use?

  8. Crystal's Cozy Kitchen

    These look delicious! (Plus anything with fruit should be considered healthy – right? 😉

  9. Bonnie

    Omg! I have to make these! They look sooooo delicious. Unfortunately, the only ingredient I have right now is the banana! I’ll be making a trip to the store later!

  10. Lizzy @ LBBakes

    I just made cookies with bananas last night – I don’t miss the butter at all!

    I think the creamed honey might be similar to honey butter that I have in my fridge… maybe? It’s delicious, nonetheless

  11. ali @ gimmesomeoven
