If you’re following along in our book, A Taste of Utica, you would probably expect to see Italian Chocolate Toto cookies today.  Those have been baked and eaten as of August 2011.  So make sure to go back to this post and check out that delicious cookie.

TODAY, we are making Sugar Free Banana Cookies from page 156 and posted by Mario.  The only sugar you will find in this oaty little treat is from the banana and dates.  Just five ingredients, one bowl and a whole lotta YUM.


Makes about 26 cookies


  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 2 cups rolled oats *I used Kamut Flakes
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a large bowl, mash the banana.  Stir in the oats, dates, oil and vanilla. Mix well then allow to sit for 15 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Drop by 1 1/2 teaspoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until brown on top.


Store in an air tight container, and since these are a moist cookie, make sure to keep them in a cool place. The fridge would be perfect.

Enjoy!  Indulge!
