I love when I can bake up yummy big cookies and they are nice and low in points! Using banana’s in baking recipes is a great way to keep points down.. these banana snickerdoodle cookies were something I just winged one day and the end result was one delicious soft (and large) cookie..Win win 🙂 Go bake up a batch today and you will love them.. 2 smart points each.

  1. I definitely need to try these! I love cinnamon. I love snickerdoodle. These sound super easy to make. Saving this recipe for sure!

      1. 5 stars
        Can one use an egg substitute or egg whites, eliminate the butter and increase the apple sauce? I would like to get the recipe as “fat free” as possible so that my brother can have some of these as well. My brother (due to medical issue w/pancreas) can’t have anything with fat in it – butter would prevent him from enjoying these.

        1. I think you could eliminate the butter and still have them turn out and taste good, I would up the apple sauce and maybe egg whites slightly .. Hope he enjoys them 🙂

  2. I have a question. I added the recipe to my recipe builder on ww, and when I made the cookies I made 24. The points value changed to 1 sp per cookie. Does that seem correct?
