3 Ingredient Samoa Cookies
So you might be thinking why to make these? Well, you cut out a ton of extra calories, it is easy to make, and you might have the ingredients on hand in your kitchen. Tasty, easy ingredients, lower calories compared to traditional cookies, etc.
What Is The Best Banana To Use In Cookies
When making these cookies it is imperative you use ripe bananas. If your bananas are not ripe, here is a quick way to take underripe bananas and make them ripe.
Turn the oven on to 225 degrees. Then place aluminum foil on a baking sheet and place your banana on the baking sheet in the peel. Cook for 20-30 minutes or until the peel is completely black. Once it is done, remove and allow it to cool on the counter for a few minutes.
Once cool enough to handle, then place in a bowl and mash-up.
How to Store These Samoa Cookies
I recommend storing these cookies in the refrigerator for up to 3-5 days. Just place in an airtight container, and you can also freeze these cookies as well if you want.
Can You Freeze These Samoa Banana Cookies
Just place them in a freezer bag and freeze until ready to eat. you will find the cookies can freeze for around 3-4 months. Place wax paper in between the layers so that the cookies do not stick together. Then when you want a cookie or two, remove and allow them to cool a bit.

Tips For Shaping Cookies
Use your hands to shape out round cookies. Then with a pastry piping tip use that to cut out the center of the cookies. Or even stick your finger in the center and push away the cookie batter.
These cookies don’t have to be perfect. They will still taste just as amazing.
Do You Use Sweetened Or Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
I used unsweetened coconut flakes that I broke up to make them smaller. If your flakes are too big, you will find you can’t shape the cookies as well and it might not hold together. Crush the coconut flakes in a bag or food processor with a few small pulses. Don’t go crazy, just make them a little smaller in size.
- 1 Ripe Banana
