These cookies are filled with everything good with none of the bad.... it truly is a non guilty pleasure!!! I make them every week with my ripe bananas. Even my husband loves them and says a lot!! Happy healthy baking friends!!
2-3 very ripe bananas
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup peanut butter- any nut butter will do
1 tsp good vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp xanthum gum - this works as the flour
1 cup protein powder- I use vanilla
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup almond flour
1 packet or 1 tsp of stevia- If my bananas are ripe enough I omit this. The riper the banana, the sweeter it is!
1 tbsp flax seeds (optional)
2 tbsp sunflower seeds- (also optional)
*I switch up the seeds and nuts that I add. Chia seeds or pumpkin seeds add great texture to the cookies as well.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine bananas, coconut oil, peanut butter. Cream together until smooth. Add eggs & vanilla. Mix dry ingredients and slowly add to banana mixture. Drop tbsp size spoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. These cookies have a banana bread like/cakey texture. Because of the high protein content, I store mine in a large ziploc bag in the refrigerator. Enjoy that healthy goodness!
