Banana-Oat-Coconut-Almond Cookies

Our group leader Ebeth from Whole Foods share this recipe. I tried it today and it was super fast and yummy.

Banana-Oat-Coconut-Almond Cookies Ebeth's Dead Simple Banana-Oat-Nut Cookies

Ingredients: 2 ½ large VERY ripe bananas 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ¼ teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon (pinch) sea salt 2 cups rolled oats ½ cup slivered almonds

Pick another add in if you'd like, just don't add more than than ½ cup total.

½ cup dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, cherries etc) ½ cup dark chocolate chips ½ cup shredded coconut (I choose coconut!)

Prep: Heat oven to 325  degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Mix: In a medium bowl, using a fork or spoon mash the banana with vanilla, cinnamon and sea salt until thick and pasty.  In a food processor, pulse oats and almonds (or whatever nut) together until they resemble a course flour. Add the banana to the oats flour, stir in any add-ins.

Scoop batter by the tablespoon onto the cookie sheet. Press down slightly with a fork. Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Thanks Ebeth for the great recipe!
