After reading Bread & Wine I wanted to
3 large, ripe bananas
1/4 cup coconut oil or olive oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup almond meal
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2/3 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chocolate chips
Mash bananas in a large bowl and then add coconut oil and vanilla. Add oats, almond meal, salt, baking powder, and stir to combine. Stir in coconut, nuts, and chocolate chips. Form into 12 cookies (or more if you make them smaller). Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes.
Notes: Versatility wins again. If you don't like coconut, use more oats. If you don't like walnuts, use another type of nut or just leave them out! I would love more chocolate chips next time, just because I'm a chocoholic. I even threw in some raisins because we had them and I like to use up ingredients. I also added a dash of cinnamon because I like the flavor. I added some ground flax seed, too. I bet peanut butter would taste good in this recipe too! The possibilities are endless! This soft, moist cookie is simple, delicious, and healthy (as long as you don't eat the whole batch in one setting!). Enjoy!
*Also, an app I have recently fallen in love with is called A Beautiful Mess. I meant to include this in the last couple of posts and I kept forgetting. It is 99cents in the app store but for someone who never purchases apps, it was worth it for the fun it adds to pictures! You can add text, borders, filters, and doodles to your photos. I love it and I bet you will too!
Have a blessed day!
