Cookies for breakfast?!
And with these, you don’t need to feel guilty. Or that’s what I tell myself, because I’ve had like 6 today. Seriously, you guys these are sooooo good.
Thanks Emily for the perfect snow day treat.
Banana Coconut Oat Cookies with Chocolate Chips
1.5 cups of whole wheat all purpose flour
1 cup of sucanat (or sugar)
1/2 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of sea salt
3/4 tsp of cinnamon
1 tsp of vanilla
1/4 tsp nutmeg
3/4 cup of coconut oil, melted (or butter)
2-3 mashed bananas
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and/or almonds
1 3/4 cups rolled oats
1/2 shredded coconut
1 cup of dark chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
BOWL 1: Combine sucanat, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, coconut oil, and bananas. Mix until creamy, add eggs and mix again.
BOWL 2: Combine flour, baking soda, rolled oats, and sea salt. Add little by little to the other bowl, mixing as you go.
BOWL 3: Add chocolate chips, coconut, and nuts (I also threw in some dried cranberries I had on hand-yummy!)
Drop by spoonful onto a cookie sheet (I had to use my fingers a lot- they’re sticky) and bake 10-12 minutes.
Let cool….HA! Yeah, right.
