Recipe

So in trying to name these cookies, my boyfriend suggested Bananakies, a combination of banana and cookie. Not being able to come with anything else, I went with it and thus we have bananakies. These cookies are surprisingly healthy combining health whole grain oats, bananas, coconut, and almonds with a touch of sweetness from some dark chocolate. I based them off a number of recipes I have read for healthy cookies and oat based cookies, adding a few of my favorite ingredients.

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the almonds to create almond meal which should be the consistency of sand.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, salt, baking powder, coconut, almonds, and cinnamon together so everything is well combined.
  4. In another mixing bowl, combine your wet ingredients – mashed bananas, vanilla extract, and unsweetened apple sauce.
  5. Mix together the dry and wet ingredients until well combined. The dough will be a little moist which is what you want.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips. Drop 1/2 tablespoon of dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment (or cooking spray) and cook for 14-16 minutes. Enjoy!

    Love these - great to satisfy my sweet tooth without blowing out my points. I freeze all but a few and just thaw out a few at a time so that I don't go crazy...and they last longer!
