Ingredients

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 ½ cups mashed banana about 3 medium-large
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • ½ cup sliced almonds

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line one baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together the oats, almond meal, cacao powder, chia seeds, baking powder, and sea salt. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, combine the mashed banana, melted coconut oil, and vanilla.
  • Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the banana mixture into it. Stir until well-combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks, coconut, and sliced almonds.
  • Using a standard-size ice cream scoop, drop mounds of the dough out onto the baking sheets leaving a little room between. There should be 9-10 cookies.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until cookies are baked through. Rotate baking sheet halfway through baking time. Test for doneness by lightly pressing on the center of the cookies. They should feel set.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet, then store in airtight container.

Notes
