Christmas is almost there, and you found out that your entire family has been secretly eating cookies and there’s almost nothing left.

Time for last-minute banana cookies. I love them so much because they’re insanely easy to make AND there are endless ways to be creative with them.

Let’s get to baking, friend!!

Here are some creative ideas for you to try:

  • Dust the working surface with; ground nuts, shredded coconut, carob, chia seeds, sugar and cinnamon, sugar sprinkles..
  • Add dry fruits & chopped nuts; I love cranberries & pistachio

Loving Nutrition:

  • Whole grain spelt flour: rich in fiber, iron, phosphorus, copper, magnesium. Contains essential amino acids & healthy fatty acids.
  • Butter: vitamins A, D, E, K, B12
  • Bananas: potassium, magnesium, B6, vitamin C, fiber


Last-minute Christmas cookies that can become anything!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Resting time 30 minutes
Total Time 22 minutes


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 stick (100g) butter
  • 1 2/3 cup (200g) whole spelt flour
  • 2-3 tbsp cacao powder optional, for chocolate cookies


  1. Mash banana with a fork.

  2. Add butter & flour (and cacao powder) to make a dough.

  3. Dust the working surface with powder of your choice (see article) & roll the dough into a log.

  4. Leave the log to get as cold as possible (it’s easier to cut).

  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F/180°C

  6. Cut the log into slices, as cut-out cookies (0.4 inch, 1cm).

  7. Bake for ca. 12 minutes.

  8. They will be squishy when freshly out of the oven – carefully not to break them (I use cake server), take them out & let them cool down.

  9. Enjoy!
