The edges are slightly crispy and caramel flavored, and the inside is moist and cinnamon. You and your child will want to eat two or three at a time.

Ingredients for sugar-free cookies:
- coconut oil– You can substitute butter or vegetable oil
- banana– Make sure you are using ripe bananas, as almost all sweetness comes from bananas.
- egg– 1 large egg will help hold the cookies together
- vanilla extract & cinnamon– for flavor
- salt– Enhances the flavor of cookies. I used kosher salt.
