Chocolate Chunk Banana Bread Cookie Skillet made with almond flour for a grain & dairy-free dessert!
Banana bread strikes again babes. Except this time it is even better (like I never even thought that was possible).
Banana bread is here in COOKIE SKILLET form you guys. We are combining two of life’s greatest gifts, banana bread + cookies into one grain-free, dairy-free and low sugar recipe. Yet I promise despite what I just said about all the “free’s” it still tastes absolutely dreamy.
It is no surprise that I have a love affair with both banana bread’s and cookies as you can see on the blog.
And that is how my banana bread cookie skillet was born..
In this recipe, I used Enjoy Life Foods.
What I love most about Enjoy Life Foods is what they stand for as a brand. Their products are free of gluten, peanuts, soy, casein, wheat, dairy, egg, potato and more. They are free of the “top 8 allergens”. All non-GMO and they make a variety of products in addition to baking chocolates like baking mixes, cookies, seed & nut mixes, and more. Enjoy Life Foods was one of the first brands I started buying when I began baking healthier recipes, and needless to say they have a warm place in my heart, always a spot in my pantry and most importantly a spot in this banana bread cookie skillet! I partnered with them for Celiac Awareness Month and am so excited for you guys to try this.Print
