Nutty Cookies

It is possible to have a little treat with the Paleo lifestyle and these soft “cookies” are a great thing to put in the kids’ lunch for a “dessert”.  From everydaypaleo.com, with edits.Nutty Cookies

2 bananas smashed

1/3 cup coconut flour

3/4 cup almond butter

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/3 cup raw walnuts (or chopped almonds)

1 apple finely chopped

1/3 cup coconut milk (canned)

1 tbsp cinnamon

(I also added 1 Tbs of honey but honestly don’t think it made a difference).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium mixing bowl, use a fork to smash the bananas to baby food consistency.  Add the coconut flour, almond butter, and baking soda and mix well.  Using a hand held chopper or food processor, chop the walnuts and almonds to a very fine dice.  Add the walnuts, apples, coconut milk, and cinnamon to the bowl and mix in remaining ingredients.  Cover to cookie sheets with parchment paper and spoon heaping tablespoons of the cookie mix onto the parchment paper, placing an inch or two apart.  Back for 25  minutes.  Makes approximately 20-22 cookies.

Variations:  add 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips for a real treat!  Take out 1 banana and add 1/2 cup canned unsweetened pumpkin.  Add 1/2 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut and top with a few sprinkles of coconut.
