Banana Chocolate Chip Coconut Cookies

One of my favorite recipes in my book is for Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. They’re so delicious, it’s hard to believe that they’re somewhat nutritious!

I wanted to bake a batch of them for Cookie Friday, but I didn’t have all of the ingredients, so I improvised and made a whole different cookie.

Because these cookies are so thick and hearty, I only ended up eating one. Usually, I ended up eating practically half of the batch, but these cookies have a lot of substance. The chocolate chips and maple syrup add just the right amount of sweetness without going overboard. The mashed banana and melted coconut butter combine to give the cookies a medium-firm texture, which is just the way I like them!

  4. What is the nutrition info for these? Also can I substitute oat flour for the wheat, gluten free me, and honey for the sryup?

  5. Sounds very good. Can you make it without the banana or is that where the most of the flavor comes from?
