Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
