These cookies were like eating warm soft banana bread! These were warm and satisfying on this cool rainy day. I used a recipe I had developed a few years back with wheat flour and oatmeal, and converted it to a grain-free recipe. Jonah helped me make them so it was a fun project for both of us!
Oven: 350 degrees
1 cup of almond meal
1/2 cup of coconut flour
1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/4 tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup of coconut oil or butter melted
1/4 cup of raw honey melted (use a little less if your bananas are very ripe)
3 very ripe bananas
In a mixing bowl whisk together all of the dry ingredients.
Mash the bananas!
Melt the coconut oil and raw honey together and pour it over the bananas with the eggs and vanilla, mix well.
Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Then, using a cookie scooper or melon baller, scoop the cookies onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for approx 12 minutes. They will be soft and not very brown (maybe slightly on the bottom)
Enjoy! (my helper…who is turning 4 this week)
I wonder what happens if you let them bake a little longer to get more brown and maybe crispy? I might try..
These look great, and I bet my kiddo will love them. I might make them today!
Can you almond flour in place of the almond meal?
@Erin I do not see why not…I’m sure it would work just fine!
Just made these. We made half with choc chips and half without. Super yummy! And they really do taste like a little slice of banana bread. Baking them longer does not make them any crispier. But that’s okay bc my kids liked the soft texture. Thanks!!
haha! Awesome Gina! What a great idea to add chocolate chips!
In the method it says to mix the vanilla, though in the ingredients list it doesn’t have vanilla. Would it just be a dash of vanilla if you were going to add it? I just put some in the oven without the vanilla. I’m sure they will still be nice
yes, 1 tsp. I will add it on right now, thanks!
If replacing almond meal with almond flour, would you use same amount?
Yes, I would try with the same amount.
Thank you for responding! I did and they turned out oh so yummy. This is my firsts Paleo recipe I have made. I bought some almond flour and coconut flour today and I am just eating meat and veggies and fruit. This was a nice desert!
Oh awesome Tina! Glad you liked them 🙂
can these by any chance be dehydrated?
I have no idea! If you try, let me know!
It looksa just delicious 😋 and you are very lucky couse you have a super helper 😉
