What do you do with an abundance of very ripe bananas?
Well...banana bread seemed like a logical answer...
But, I wanted to use as many unprocessed ingredients as possible :)
I found this simple recipe at www.geniuskitchen.com
The end product was moist, tasty and filling cookies!
You will need...
*3 ripe bananas
*1/3 cup of melted coconut oil
*2 cups of oats
*1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
*1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
Here's how you do it...
In a medium bowl, mash the bananas.
Stir in the melted coconut oil, oats, vanilla and chocolate chips.
Using a small spoon, scoop up the batter into cookie balls.
Place them onto cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.
Gently flatten out each cookie with your hand.
Bake the cookies for 18 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
*I baked my cookies for 9 minutes...and then switched which
oven rack the baking sheets were on. I baked them for another 9 minutes.
Then move the cookies onto cooling racks.
These simple gems will be quite moist...and disappear quickly!
