Hey Weight Loss Nation!
Today is a 5 Minute Snack Day!
I have a very healthy snack for you!
It’s Banana, Dark Chocolate Cookies!
That’s Right! Another delicious, healthy snack.
Let’s make them!
BANANA DARK CHOCOLATE COOKIES
Should Make About 8 Cookies
1/2 cup coconut flour, sifted. I used Bob Red Mill Organic Coconut â€“ in most supermarkets.
1/2 cup mashed banana (about 2 medium ones)
1/4 cup almond butter (use whatever nut butter you want)*
As I’ve said in prior episodes, I use Artisana Raw Organic Almond Butter. One of the least processed and healthiest almond butter. Go to http://www.artisanaorganics.com to purchase almond butter or you can find Artisana almond butter in your nearest Health Food Store, Whole Foods, Sprouts etc.
1/4 cup raw, unfiltered honey
(Buy LOCAL Raw, Unfiltered Honey. That’s the best for you. If you live near Savannah, GA you wouldn’t want to buy Raw, Unfiltered Honey from Oregon, because the honey from Oregon contains local pollen & nutrients from that area. If you live in Oregon, check out Raw Oregon Honey at www.raworegonhoney.com
If you live near Savannah, GA you want raw, local honey that contains the local pollen & nutrients from your neighborhood. check out HL Franklin Honey at www.FranklinFoodsLLC.com
1.5 oz Dark Chocolate – I use Taza -Wicked Dark Chocolate bar. Taza has one of the least processed Dark Chocolate in the friggin world. With the “Wicked Dark” containing 95% Dark Chocolate, SWEET is NO longer in the equation. We’re talking HEALTHY HERE! You’ll use ½ of the “Wicked Dark” Chocolate Bar for this recipe. Go to www.tazachocolate.com to purchase “Wicked Dark” Chocolate Bars.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a cooking sheet with baking paper and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, combine the coconut flour and banana and mix well. The batter should be very crumbly.
In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, melt the almond butter and pour into the dry mixture.
Add the honey.
Mix until a thick batter is formed.
Break up the Dark Chocolate into small pieces & add to the batter.
Form into balls and transfer “8” balls to the lined cookie sheet. Press firmly into a flat, cookie shape and bake for 12-15 minutes.
Stick a knife in the cookie to see if it’s done. If the knife comes out dry….the cookies are done! If the knife is still wet, put it back into the oven for a minute or two.
Remove and allow to sit for 10 minutes until they firm up slightly.
These cookies can be kept at room temperature covered for up to 3 days. These are delicious refrigerated and can also be frozen too.
