banana chocolate chip oatmeal cookies

After Bailey was born I was HUNGRY. All the time. I made these cookies before I went into labor and was so glad to have them on hand for those middle of the night snack sessions. I’ve since made them a few times and am thinking I should make them again because they would make a good alternative to all the tempting holiday treats. These come together really quickly and taste pretty darn good for a “healthy cookie”.

yields: 18 cookies

INGREDIENTS:

2 ripe bananas, mashed

2 eggs

1/3 C almond butter

2/3 C applesauce

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

dash ground cloves

dash ground nutmeg

2 tbsp coconut flour

1 3/4 C oats (i love the gluten free ones from trader joe’s)

1/4 C chopped nuts or seeds

1/2 C chocolate chips

1/4 C shredded or flaked unsweetened coconut

 

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Mix together the bananas, eggs, almond butter, applesauce, vanilla, salt and spices until well combined.  Add in the coconut flour, oats, nuts, chocolate chips, and coconut; stir until well combined.

Spoon a rounded 2 tbsp. of the cookie mixture onto the lined baking sheet, leaving an inch or two between each and flatten slightly. Bake for 20-30 minutes and allow to cool slightly.
