Low Sugar Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

    25 min

    These chocolate chip cookies get natural sweetness from the banana, and just a little bit of sugar to help them along. You'll notice these are a little more cake-like than typical chocolate chip cookies, but they're a healthful alternative and still delicious!
