Nutty Cookies

Well. I’ll take a star or two for being a good sport.  The author says:  “I can say yes every time my kids ask me to make cookies without the added stress of future, ‘No you can’t have another cookie’ battles.”  I’m pretty sure that the reason why she won’t have that stress is because no self-respecting kid will ever gorge themselves on these morsels.

They would be a good fruit solution for someone who hates fruit, but is okay with biscuits.   Or for someone who would like a nice muffin with very little taste. J  They have their place, and I think they will be future breakfasts for me.  So – here goes:

 Nutty Cookies
2 bananas, smashed
1/3 cup coconut flour
¾ cup almond butter
½ tsp baking soda
1/3 cup raw walnuts, chopped
1 apple, finely diced
1/3 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp cinnamon

1.       Preheat oven to 350º F.

2.       In a medium sized mixing bowl, use a fork to smash the bananas.

3.       Add the coconut flour, almond butter, and baking soda.  Mix well.  Using a hand-held chopper or food processor, chop the walnuts and apples to a very fine dice.

4.       Add walnuts, apples, coconut milk and cinnamon to the bowl.  Mix well.

5.       Cover two cookie sheets with parchment paper and spoon heaping tablespoons of the cookie mix onto parchment paper, placing an inch or two apart.  Bake for 2t minutes.  Makes approximately 20-22 cookies.
