  5. Evenly distribute batter into muffin tin. Makes 12 muffins.

Banana and Chocolate Chunk Cookies

posted by Estelle September 21, 2011 7 Comments
I am always looking for treats that I can have that have very little to no sugar in them because me and sugar DO NOT get along. It just so happens that these cookies are VERY low in sugar (the only sugar in them is the dark chocolate) and they do not have any eggs or gluten (depending on your oats) in them! Oh and they are very good! Enjoy…
Banana and Chocolate Chunk Cookies
3 bananas
1/2 cup almond butter
4 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp pure vanilla
2 cups oats (i used old-fashioned)
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks
Preheat oven to 350ºC
Bake for 12-14 minutes
All the goods you need
Mash the bananas together with the almond butter, coconut oil, and vanilla

In a separate bowl combine the oats, coconut, cinnamon, baking powder and salt
I took a bar of 70% dark chocolate and just chopped it up

Take the wet and dry ingredients along with the chocolate and mix all together

Place spoonfuls of batter on a cookie sheet, grease it or use a ‘silpat’

Voila! They were very yummy and I didn’t feel guilty giving them to my kids!
