  • Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit (177 Celsius)
  • Add your dates to a food processor and pulse until finely chopped
  • Add your bananas, almond butter, egg, and lemon extract and process until you have a smooth batter with minimal chunks
  • Add your nutmeg, cloves, baking soda and crushed pecans and mix one final time ensuring an even distribution of ingredients
  • Use a medium cookie scoop and scoop the batter onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet leaving room for them to spread
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown on the bottom
  • Remove from the oven and let cool


These cookies are supposed to be chewy and cake-like as that is what we were going for. Your batter will be slightly runny but will still bake.
