Recipe Notes

1) Make sure banana is pureed smoothly (No chunks!) Banana chunks will lead to raw cookies. 2) Dough will be fairly sticky. This is normal.3) If you do not have ground flax on hand you can also just grind whole flax seeds until they are slightly cracked. I think this actually adds a nice texture.4) These cookies also taste great warm. Give them a try once they come out of the oven!
