Banana Protein Cookies


I am always looking for a healthy alternative when it comes to baking. My family loves sugary and indulgent baked desserts, you know... the good stuff. But who doesn't? This recipe is made with zero sugar or flour but is packed with protein, fiber, & all the chewy goodness that satisfies! **Can also be made in Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, or Apple flavored cookies as well... I think Chocolate would be great too!

3 very ripe bananas
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup nut butter- use your favorite!
1/3 cup plain greek yogurt- I use cottage cheese sometimes too
2 eggs
 a pinch of salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tbsp. flax seeds
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1 tbsp. chia seeds
2-3 tbsp. sunflower seeds
1 tsp. xanthum gum
2 scoops vanilla protein powder- I've used chocolate too- works great! 
1/2 cup 6 grain oats- any oats will work
2-3 tbsp honey or sweeten to taste with the sweetener of your choice

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well blended.
Place heaping tablespoons 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet and bake 18-20 minutes or until dark golden brown. Cool completely and store in an airtight container in fridge for up to 1 week.
**For other varieties- in place of bananas-use 1 1/2 cups of cooked sweet potatoes- canned pumpkin, or shredded apple 
Happy healthy eating!
