A Healthy (and delicious!) Chocolate Chip Cookie

These are really great and easy to make. But the best part is that you don’t feel so bad after eating a million of them!

Indredients:
3 bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup coconut oil (microwave a little as it will be hard)
2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
2/3 cup almond meal
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon fine grain salt
1 teaspoon baking power
6-7 ounces dark chocolate or chocolate chips

Mash your bananas until it looks like, well, baby food. Add the vanilla extract and coconut oil. Mix well. Next get your dry ingredients into a separate large bowl- oats, coconut, cinnamon, salt, almond meal and baking powder (to make the almond meal, just pulse the raw almonds in a food processor until it resembles a sand texture). 20121215-001050.jpg20121215-001118.jpg20121215-001130.jpg

Form small balls of the dough (about 2 teaspoons worth) and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, two inches apart. Place in the oven for about 14 minutes or until golden brown (and not burned on the bottom!). Let sit for a few minutes before eating…all of them.
