Nine times out of ten, I’m that person that doesn’t believe the words “healthy” and “cookie” should even belong in the same sentence.
…but this is that tenth time.
yields 12-14 cookies
- 3/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 banana, mashed
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil (canola oil would work too)
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
- 3 tablespoons dark chocolate chips
- other options: nuts or dried fruit
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Combine wet ingredients **except for the milk** in a separate bowl.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and combine.
- Add milk and combine 1/4 cup at a time, then add chocolate chips.
- Form cookies (about 1-2 tablespoons of dough) and place on greased baking sheet.
- Bake for about 23 minutes until edges begin to turn golden brown.
- Immediately transfer to cooling rack, and allow cookies to cool for at least 5 minutes.
I don’t bake healthy treats nearly as much as I used to, but this recipe reminded me that healthy and delicious cookies do actually exist. These are particularly cookie dough-like in consistency and, well…who doesn’t love cookie dough?
