Coconut Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies (Paleo/GF/Vegan)

Whoa! I did not expect these cookies to turn out as delicious as they did.

I just finished yet another batch of Evan’s almond meal chocolate chip cookies (but I subbed brown sugar instead of regular – note to self: don’t do that,) so I obviously had to replenish the cookie stash in the house, stat.

Then I found this recipe through Christina’s blog, and sat on the idea of the ingredients for a while. After a while, I didn’t think I wanted to include the oats (and didn’t have enough anyhow) so I used almond meal as my only “flour” in the recipe.

Because of this, I had to tweak everything else since almond meal contains a lot more fat in it than its oat cousin (distant…cousin.) And these were born:

Coconut Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies (Paleo-friendly, GF, Vegan)

inspired by this recipe

1 large ripe banana

3 tbsp. coconut oil (or canola, or better yet, butter)

1 egg

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 packet stevia (optional)

2 c. almond meal (raw almonds processed in a food processor until it resembles a flour)

1/2 c. shredded, unsweetened coconut

1 tsp. sea salt

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 c. chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first 4 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and then fold in the chocolate chips. Bake on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet for 15 minutes.

Eat straight from oven and burn tongue Winking smile

These cookies are to die for! Better yet that they’re healthy. In fact, I found a way to incorporate them into breakfast.

Breakfast

Because I was too chatty to include breakfast in this morning’s post, I’ll tell ya’ll about it now Smile I packed up this breakfast to go since I have a client to train here in a few minutes – I’ll eat it after training.

1/2 c. 2% Greek yogurt, 1/4 c. of cottage cheese, 1/4 c. pumpkin, ~2 tbsp. currants, stevia to taste, 1 cookie

It’s basically the same combo from yesterday + a delicious cookie.

Workout

I ate the above breakfast after this morning’s workout, which turned out to be neither HIIT nor spin class! Instead, I did a pretty intense lifting workout:

dynamic warmup: walking curtsey lunges, walking side lunges w/ twist, sit squat to stands, quad pulls, glute pulls, high knees, butt kickers, drum kickers

abs: turkish getups, suitcase deadlifts w/ step up, diagonal cable chop w/ back lunge

full body: plank + rows (30# db,) Bulgarian split squats (2 30# db’s,) single leg deadlifts on plate (2 30# db’s,) chest press (2 30#db’s)

streeeetttttch Open-mouthed smile

Now it’s time to get back to work and grab some lunch. Recipe is coming on this deliciously healthy lunch, but here’s a sneak peak!
