Coconut Banana Breakfast Cookies

I was inspired to make these wheat-/gluten-free cookies from the same cookbook I’ve referenced a lot lately – “Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.” That version uses eggs and honey; mine are dairy and sugar free, made with unsweetened applesauce. My husband and I enjoyed them fresh from the oven, and then the rest of the week toasted with nut butter for breakfast and afternoon snacks.
