I have added chocolate buttons to the banana cookies but this is optional. These wheat cookies are a much healthier option than the regular maida cookies. Anyone can grab and enjoy a guilt-free snacking.

Can I add nuts to the cookie?

I added walnuts, the best combination with bananas however you can add any type of dry fruits like almonds, cashews, raisins, etc. Adding nuts to the cookies enhance the flavor. Even you can enjoy plain classic cookies with intense banana flavor.

Are eggs mandatory?

Eggs give a soft and fluffy texture for the cookies however you can skip the eggs in this recipe because banana takes up the work of eggs in making it extremely soft.
