Gluten Free Tanya Burr Banana Cookies

Hello Adventurers!

I made these a little while ago and loved them, more so because I had to try the recipe three times to get it right!


100g Dairy Free Butter, softened

150g Caster Sugar

Half an Egg, beaten (I used a medium egg)

1 1/2 Small Bananas, mashed

175g Gluten Free Self-Raising Flour



Baking Tray/Cookie Sheets

Baking Paper

Mixing Bowl

Wooden Spoon


Tablespoon x 2


Cooling Rack


Measure out all your ingredients and preheat your oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas Mark 6.  Line your cookie sheets or baking trays (whatever you have access to) with baking paper.

Grab your mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar and mix until light and fluffy.  Add in your egg and mix until fully combined so that you don’t have little bits of butter in your mixture.

Add your bananas and mix together.  Now grab your flour and add, gradually, into the mixture and beat all together until fully combined.

Using a tablespoon and teaspoon, place your mixture on your cookie sheet or baking tray.  Make sure you leave plenty of room between each as they do spread out quite a bit.  Scrape the sides of your bowl with a spatula so that you don’t lose any of that amazing mixture.  Now, if you want to get technical, you can measure your mixture in a separate bowl and divide by five to know exactly how much mixture to use to make one cookie, but I prefer just guessing and adding or taking away if they are too different in sizing.

Once five cookie balls are on the baking trays/cookie sheets, place in your oven and leave to cook for 20 minutes.

When the timer is done, bring them out of the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes on the baking trays/cookie sheets.  At this point, they will be incredibly fragile so be careful and take your time with them.  Then move them onto your cooling rack and leave to cool for a further 20 minutes.  Once this is done, they are ready to eat!

P.S.  They will not look cooked, but don’t worry, just trust me when I say that they are!!!  They are meant to be chewy on the inside.

Serve and enjoy!
