"When my kids were younger they loved it when I made a hummingbird cake. (a banana-pineapple-spice cake). I’d often vary the ingredients based on what I had in my pantry. I wanted to showcase Apricot Power Superfood Mix in a recipe that was easy and that the whole family could enjoy. I decided to use a basic cookie recipe and create a hummingbird cookie, using bananas, dates, and a packet of Coconut Almond Superfood mix. The result was delicious and it helps put a fun and healthy spin on just having cookies for dessert. I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I enjoyed creating it.”
