Eat: Banana Date Cookies
Did you get chance to read about the real food challenge? Are you doing it? Are you going to do it?
Well, this recipe was actually sent my way by Jenn, the author of that post. I have modified it to be banana date flavored, but the ones that she made, which basically followed the original recipe, were great, too.

But whether you are following the real food diet or not, these are some yummy cookies that you can feel good about eating and giving your kids. And they were easy to make. So healthy…yummy…easy to make…it’s the trifecta of desserts. So go ahead, make ’em!
|On principle, I don’t eat cookie dough, but even I have to admit this looks pretty tasty. 🙂|
