These banana cookies with chunks of figs and a dash of cardamom are extremely chewy and moist. Served with a strong coffee or chai tea, they will remind you of the Middle East and its unique spices.

5 Ingredient Fig and Banana Cookies With Cardamom [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Serves

12

Cook Time

10

Ingredients

  • 2 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 and ¼ cup ground almonds (make sure you don’t pack the almonds into the cup or you’ll end up with much more)
  • ¾ cup dried figs, chopped
  • ½ teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • optional: 1 tablespoon natural sweetener of choice (if using liquid, add ½ teaspoon chia seeds)

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
  3. If the mixture still looks too runny (depends on size and ripeness of bananas), add a bit more almond flour.
  4. Drop 1 to 1 and ½ tablespoons of the dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment.
  5. Flatten the cookies to a desired thickness (dough doesn’t spread while baking).
  6. Bake for 7-10 minutes, until the cookies firm up and the edges start to turn a bit golden.
  7. Let cool completely.
  8. Enjoy!

Notes

These cookies are naturally sweet thanks to the bananas and figs; however, if you prefer yours a bit sweeter or your bananas are not overly ripe, feel free to add the optional sweetener.

I have never made almond four before. Is that different from ground almonds? How do you do it?

If i want to substitute fresh figs for dried, how many cups should I use?

I\'m afraid the fresh figs would release a lot of water and ruin the whole thing so I wouldn\'t recommend to sub for the dried ones.
