Quick and easy banana and date cookies

banana date cookies

Weekends are always jam-packed and we know that many families are active and on the go. These banana and date cookies are a great snack to take with you on the go. Best of all they are dairy free and refined sugar-free too, so they are perfect to share with friends with these food intolerances.

These cookies are packed with bananas, which are high in potassium, magnesium and vitamin A which supports children’s vision. The dates act as a natural sweetener and support healthy iron levels in children. So give these cookies a go this weekend!
