Brownie Cookies

This is another great coconut flour recipe. It makes a nice small batch of semi-healthy cookies. The banana replaces butter and some of the sugar, and you can replace the sugar with honey or another kind of sweetener.

I find that these cookies have the best texture the day they are made, but they are still pretty good a few days old. Just store them in a sealed container at room temperature (They can be frozen but the texture isn't quite the same). This recipe only makes a dozen or so cookies, so chances are you won't have any leftovers!

makes 12-14 cookies

1/3 cup Coconut Flour
1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
1/4 cup Sugar (or honey or sweetener of your choice)
1 tsp Baking Powder
pinch salt
1 Ripe Banana
2 Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips 


Mash banana in a bowl.
Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In a different bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Combine the 2 bowls and stir well.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop tablespoons of dough on parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350 for about 15 mins.
