Healthy Banana Chocolate Cookies

Looking for some healthy snack ideas for the kids? I made these cookies to use up the coconut pulp left over from the fresh coconut milk I recently made. They are a delicious and healthy alternative snack for the kids which are great for the lunchbox - they are Gluten Free and Sugar Free.

1 large very ripe banana
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 heaped tablespoon honey
20g olive oil
240g almond meal
40g coconut pulp (or desiccated coconut)
80g dark chocolate, chopped

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
  2. Place the banana, vanilla extract, honey and olive oil in the TM bowl and mix for 10 seconds/speed 5.
  3. Add the almond meal, coconut pulp and chocolate and mix for 10 seconds/Reverse + speed 3 or until a soft dough is formed.
  4. Take a heaped tablespoon of the mixture and gently roll into a ball, then place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Flatten slightly, then bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool, then store in an airtight container.

  1. I came home from being away over the long weekend, to two brown bananas in the fruit bowl and remembered I'd seen this recipe. Have just made them for morning tea and they are amazing! Thank you :)
