just a bite

I made these cookies this past weekend and I believe them to be very good (and good for you!). Here's the recipe -- pardon the re-name:


3 large, ripe bananas, well mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup almond meal/flour
1/3 cup coconut, finely shredded & unsweetened
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 to 7 ounces chocolate chips or dark chocolate bar, chopped


Preheat oven to 350º, racks in the top third

In a large bowl, combing the bananas, vanilla extract and olive oil. Set aside. In another bowl, whisk together the oats, almond meal, shredded coconut, cinnamon, salt and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips/chunks. The dough is a bit looser than a standard cookie dough but don't worry about it. Drop 1 tablespoon scoops, an inch apart, onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes but be mindful you don't burn the bottoms. Makes about 3 dozen bite-sized cookies.

Bon appétit!
