Nikki's Healthy Cookie Recipe
Nb persons: 0
Yield: about 3 dozen bite-sized cookies
|3||large, ripe bananas, well mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)|
|1 teaspoon||vanilla extract|
|1/4 cup||coconut oil, barely warm - so it isn't solid (or alternately, olive oil)|
|2 cups||rolled oats|
|2/3 cup||almond meal|
|1/3 cup||coconut, finely shredded & unsweetened|
|1/2 teaspoon||fine grain sea salt|
|1 teaspoon||baking powder|
|6 - 7 ounces||chocolate chips|
|dark chocolate bar chopped, alternative|
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, racks in the top third.
In a large bowl combine the bananas, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. Set aside. In another bowl whisk together the oats, almond meal, shredded coconut, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks/chips.The dough is a bit looser than a standard cookie dough, don't worry about it. Drop dollops of the dough, each about 2 teaspoons in size, an inch apart, onto a parchment (or Silpat) lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 - 14 minutes. I baked these as long as possible without burning the bottoms and they were perfect - just shy of 15 minutes seems to be about right in my oven.
Makes about 3 dozen bite-sized cookies.
