My New Favorite Cookies

I have a little love affair going on with these cookies (just don’t tell the lima beans I’m cheating on them….)

They are wheat-free and gluten-free but certainly not taste free.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present Banana Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I found the recipe in a great new book called Clean Food by Terry Walters then modified it a bit.

2 bananas, mashed
1/4 c. grapeseed oil
1/4 c. maple syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2/3 c. flax meal
2/3 c. brown rice flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. shredded unsweetened dried coconut
pinch of sea salt
1/4 c. dark chocolate chips

Combine bananas, oil, syrup and vanilla in a medium bowl (I used a blender). In a separate bowl, combine flax, flour, soda, coconut & salt. Add banana mixture to the dry ingredients and blend until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop batter by teaspoonful onto a cookie sheet. No need to roll or flatten. Bake 14 min. at 350 or until lightly browned.

Makes 1 1/2 dozen cookies

Let me know how yours turn out :)
