The above scenario is pretty much a given if you make these coconut banana cookies from Caveman Strong. I told myself that I should have a couple and bring the rest to work. That didn’t happen. But at least I’m sort of sharing them. I’m spreading the word of their tastiness!
These cookies are so easy to make too. They are a little soft when they come out, but let them cool and they’ll be fine. Also, they don’t flatten out like regular cookies, as I discovered when mine came out in the same balled-up shape they went in as. I’m no baker, but it probably has something to do with the lack of refined flour or something else that’s bad for you anyway. You could try shaping them like regular cookies before you put them in the oven, but you might want to watch them as they cook so they don’t burn. You’d just have to experiment.
What I really like about these cookies is that they have no almond flour—which I find to be dry, and which has all those phytates or whatnot—and no extra sugar than what’s in the banana and chocolate chips. So many paleo desserts seem to call for cups of maple syrup or honey.
Before I share the recipe, I want to give you a word of caution: You won’t be able to eat just one cookie. Trust me! Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
