Zooey, my little helper!

Zooey, my little helper!

One thing you may start noticing about me is that I LOVE bananas! I think they are a great snack, great to toss into a smoothie, great to mush into a frozen treat, and also great for baking cookies!

So I found a recipe for banana coconut cookies, and from that I fine tuned it into a delicious, healthy and easy-to-make treat, MiddleCoast style!





Here’s what you need to know:

Ingredients: 3 ripe bananas, cocao powder, dark chocolate chips, pecans, and oats

Baking Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Grease (I used a coconut oil spray) or line pan with parchment paper

    Mmm we can't wait!

    Mmm we can’t wait!

  3. Mash bananas in bowl, add other ingredients, and mix around (I didn’t measure anything, I like to eyeball it-imagining what I would like to see in every cookie or each bite-sorry but it’s true!)
  4. Use a spoon to create about 2 inch balls
  5. Place balls on cookie sheet with some space in between, and flatten slightly (use flatter end of spoon to do this)
  6. Bake 15 mins
  7. Allow to cool for a few minutes before you enjoy!
Finished and delicious!

Finished and delicious!

Tip: The more oats you use the less soft/gooey they will be (not saying that you should add more oats, just what you prefer-I think I liked mine on the gooey side)

Hope you enjoy it! If you adjust anything and you love it please feel free to share with me! I always like trying something new! I know next time we are talking using blueberries instead of the dark chocolate chips!
