Banana Gingerbread Cookie Skillet (grain free )

Alright, babes, I have this killer banana bread cookie skillet recipe that is gonna blow your socks off. If your wearing socks, if not it’s gonna blow your MIND. I have an obsession with anything made in a cast iron skillet and honestly, if I can put it in my small cast iron skillet and call it a single serving size, odds are I’m gonna be one happy camper. Or foodie.

This recipe actually came together when I was visiting my momma bear in Colorado, last weekend and while my mom makes lots of delicious foods, she isn’t big in the baking department. So she doesn’t have tons of stuff for baking in her pantry. So I kind of started mixing things together and hoped for the best. It turns out, that this impromptu recipe in the making turned out way too good for words. Sometimes being in someone else’s kitchen sparks this weird creative string in me and some of my best recipes are created. I recipe tested like crazy on Sunday morning cause it was snowing and it felt like it was the universes way of telling me to make magic.

I literally decided to create my love for banana bread + cookies into a pretty cool, grain free, dairy free and low sugar recipe. Regardless of the fact that is low in sugar and free of dairy + grains, it is still dreamy af.

While I took bananas out of my diet a for about a year in 2016 last year around September I reintroduced them and haven’t experienced any weird PCOS symptoms. YAY! I still am very careful of my natural sugar intake and try to make it up with amping up on adaptogens and healthy fats.

This banana bread skillet cookie knows the way to my heart and it has tons of flavor from ground ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and my favorite adaptogen ever chaga. If you know me, you know I use chaga in one way or another every day.

I am SOOO excited for you babes to try this recipe out! It is so good and honestly, the ingredients are pretty minimal, you can leave it vegetarian by not adding the collagen peptides.

Oh, and I have some crazy cool news for you all, as you know I LOVEEE what my girl Alyssa from Root & Bones is doing and I am super excited to share with you all that she will be joining us for tea time soon! Get ready because we really dove in and talked about everything. I get my chaga, reishi, he shou wu, cordyceps, and basically everything she has. NOT sponsored what so ever, just sharing the LOVEEE 🙂

Hi! I'm Andrea. A girl who loves her chocolate as much as her greens.

  1. Banana gingerbread is an interesting combination! This combined with a cup of matcha looks like an ideal combination for me, I used to always grab at least 3 scoops of matcha from Starbucks!

  2. Hahaha, your writing style is so cute and fun to read! This sounds like a pretty simple recipe that I’d be keen to try! Might have to invest in an iron skillet first though haha! x

  3. Cookies wow. These are a classic dessert and not to forget…VERY TASTY. My favorite would have to be a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie (homemade or if in a hurry Subway) it’s the best.

  4. I have seen different chocolate chip cookie skillet recipes but still have tried any. This banana gingerbread cookie looks really tasty. I am soon going to have to try making a cookie in a skillet.

  5. I love this mashup of banana bread and cookie! and skillet cookies are just too good…

    also, you are speakin’ my language with the cordyceps, chaga, and reishi! drinking some cordyceps tea right now…

  6. Oh man I definitely need to make something sweet in my skillet! That just looks so darn good. Do you wash your skillet really well before making this? I’m always worried the cookie will end up tasting like steak.

    1. You totally should try this recipe it is so yummy. Yeah I do, I use a mild dish soap, some drops and the back side of the lemon to wash it. Then I make sure to dry it in the hot oven, keeps it seasoned and from rusting.
