Grain-Free Banana Cookies

 These grain-free cookies are crispy on the putside and chewy on the inside. They are made with arrowroot and quinoa flour. Arrowroot powder is made of a dried root of a tropical plant. Most commonly considered a grain, quinoa is actually a relative of leafy green vegetables like spinach, kale and Swiss chard. So, technically, these cookies do not contain any grains; they are gluten-free and vegan.
