The last day of August caught up with me. September creeps around the corner. Before you know it, kids will be at my doorstep trick or treating in Ghost, Vampire, and Princess costumes. For now, let’s enjoy this last day of August by eating outside.

Enjoy the view, whip up a quick batch of cookies, and relax.

Serve hot or cold. Plain or sandwiched with Peanut Butter Cream or Coconut Whipped Cream.

The fluffy cookie sandwiched with the creamy filling tasted like a chocolate banana whoopie-pie. Only better. And healthier.

  1. Oh my gosh, they are beautiful!!!

    I wish we lived closer… then we could eat cookies together ;).
    I will try to eat outside today, but it TX the average temp is 107… not so nice for eating!

  2. Wow, that cookie looks incredible! I absolutely LOVE banana and peanut butter together. Awesome that it’s also a gluten and dairy free treat! I’m going to have to make these! Thanks for the recipe!

  3. These look perfect! Meghan just told me she wants some cookies–I think these are the ones I’ll make. Thanks! :-)

  4. I love how these have so few ingredients but still look like they taste amazing. I wish I had the luxury of eating outside, but I don’t have the time to take a leisurely break outdoors. I’ll be getting in several bike rides to and from all my commitments today though… maybe I’ll bring some unsweetened chocolate to nosh on during one of the rides!

    • Prep time literally took me five minutes to make. That includes the time blending the oats. By the time I cleaned my dishes-they were ready to eat!

      And definitely take some unsweetened chocolate with ya! Mmmmm!

  5. omg gimme! pweez! i love sammie cookies!

  6. Jennie says:

    How many cookies did you get out of this recipe?

    • Hey Jennie!

      It totally depends on how big you decide to make them. I decided to make larger cookies and I ended up with maybe 2 dozen cookies (they go fast, though, because they are too darn yummy!). Hope this helps!

  7. These look amazing and 100% no added sugar! yeah!!! love it! I bet they would be great with almond flour too, i’ll try it and let you know! enjoy this last day of August!

  8. Wow, great & simple recipe, Alex! I love that they’re gluten and egg free (which means I can eat them too :) )

    And I agree 100%– August went by WAY too fast! Actually, this year has been going way too fast! It’s hard to believe that in a year I will have a Bachelors degree

  9. YAY for COOKIES!!!! I love this recipe girl! They look SO GOOD!!!! How do they taste in dough-form? I’m loving cookie-dough at the moment. :)

  10. Janelle D says:

    Thanks for sharing this recipe Alex! I don’t know if you’ve posted about this before…. but how do you chop your chocolate? I tried using my magic bullet and it made the most awful, dying sound. Then when I tried to chop it by hand I succeeded…. in making a huge chocolate shavings mess. Then when I put it in a plastic bag and whacked at it with a rolling pin, it barely made a dent. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!

    • Hey Janelle!

      I use a Chef’s knife to cut it. Usually I use baker’s unsweetened, so I cut it in half first and then make big chunks. If you cut it too small, it will turn into shavings. Just cut in big chunks, and then those big chunks in half if needed.

  11. Kathleen says:

    This looks AMAZING. I’m saving this recipe to make a batch for my sister who has recently gone sugar free :)

  12. OMG i looove whoopie pies! Best things ever :) awesome recipe girl!

  13. Sugar free banana cookies yay. I just bought 5 banana’s yesterday! Although I might just make them and eat the dough…I’ve been having a cookie dough craving lately :)

  14. YUM that cookie is calling my name!!! And we enjoyed some time outside today, we went for a walk, we will try to get outside to eat too : )

  15. ginghart says:

    Do you have a recipe for the peanut butter cream filling?!??! I’m going to make these RIGHT NOW! :) THANKS!

  16. I just ran out of bananas :( I’ll save this recipe for the weekend :) How many cookies would you say this recipe makes?

    • Hi Allison,

      Oh no! No more Bananas :( You better go to the store pronto! :P

      It totally depends on how big you decide to make them. I decided to make larger cookies and I ended up with maybe 2 dozen cookies (they go fast, though, because they are too darn yummy!). Hope this helps!

  17. I need to make those coookies like NOW! I just happen to have 2 very ripe bananas on my counter! I know what i’m doing tomorrow!!! :)

  18. YUM..these look sooo good! What an easy recipe :) Will be making asap!

  19. Megan says:

    I just tried these with some way-too-ripe bananas I had in the cupboard. I added raisins and a touch of almond extract to half the batch and they were a-may-zing!

  20. Just letting you know, I’m so making these next week :)

  21. [...] I baked some of a Spoonful Of Sugar Free’s Fluffy Banana Chocolate Chunk Cookies stuffed with my homemade Dark Chocolate Almond Butter, just 1/2 cup raw almonds to 1/4 dark [...]

  22. Carmen says:

    I wanted to know how many cups of oat flour the 2 cups of oats will make. I bought oat flour and not rolled oats so I would like to know how much it will make. Thankyou!

  23. Loeka says:

    I’m making them right now and my kitchen smells incredible!
    But… they won’t get brown? They just stay kind of pale.. Any idea why that is? The only thing I changed was replacing the chocolate for peanuts, and the supermarket ran out of baking soda so I added a bit more powder for that.
    Can’t wait to taste them though, they still look really good!

    • Sugar Free Alex says:

      Loeka,

      They really don’t brown much, so that is pretty normal. How did the peanuts taste instead of the chocolate?
