These grain free, sugar free cookies are called 'everyday' because they are so healthy they can become your everyday tea time snack. They stay super moist after baking but you will probably gobble them up too quick to worry about that. —Desiree

I used spotty bananas - reasonably ripe - and found these cookies a bit undersweet. Dropping them resulted in a mounded cookie that did not spread and wasn't cooked through at the 20 minute mark. I squashed them flat and baked them another 10 minutes. With that, they are a bit mushy in the center and dark on the outside. I baked them on parchment and they were still quite difficult to remove.

I would describe this more as a lightly sweet go-to that is trying to be a bit too health conscious. Not a successful "cookie" recipe.
