Any who are they? Well, watch this clip from Elizabethtown.
Love that movie.
Anyway, I tend to buy more bananas than any individual could safely consume in a given week so I almost always have to make something with the remaining. Or freeze them for smoothies or Chia Seed Pudding. Since I had just baked some Cinnamon Raisin Bread with bananas the night before, I wanted to make a cookie.
And these truly are healthy cookies... IMHO.
Nuttin' but Healthy Cookies
2 1/2 ripe bananas
1 egg, organic/cage-free
2 tbls PB2 peanut butter
1/2 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
1/2 cup freshly ground almonds (or almond flour/meal)
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup dairy/soy free chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life)
Dash of cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
In a large bowl, mash up the banana and then add in the egg and mix well. Add in the PB2, coconut, almonds, pecan and chocolate chips and mix in until all ingredients are incorporated. Lastly, add the cinnamon and baking soda and mix in thoroughly.
Bake on parchment paper at 350° for about 10-13 minutes. They will remain soft but the toothpick should come out clean. And when I say they remain soft, I mean, very soft :)
Yields 10-12 medium sized cookies
See, nuttin' but healthy cookies :)
