Chocolate Coconut Protein Cookie
Delicious chocolate coconut protein cookies use banana for sweetness and moisture and heart healthy oats, avocado, protein powder for an extra health kick.
Servings 12 cookies
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1 small avocado
- 1 1/2 scoops unflavored whey protein powder
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 3 T unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp. coconut extract
- 1/2 tsp. honey or agave nectar
- 1/4 cup sweetened shredded coconut (if unsweetened, double honey or agave nectar)
- 1/2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C).
Either mash bananas by hand or use a hand mixer to blend until smooth and creamy. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
Drop batter onto a lined cookie sheet into scant 1/4 cup globs (should make 12 cookies). Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes until firm, but not overly done.
Remove and let sit for 10 minutes before moving cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely. Will last for 3 days in an airtight container on the countertop.
