Recipe Makeover : Double Chocolate Cookies

In our house, 50% of the bananas get over-ripe before we can eat them...it's jus the way. However, lately, I have been really intentional about using (or freezing) the produce we buy and when nit comes to bananas, I've been making all sorts of things with them. This new recipe makeover is a huge hit with my family. It's super easy, vegan and gluten free...also super fun to make with little kiddos.

E. H. Fitness Recipe Makeover: Double Chocolate Cookies

(makes 12 cookies)

What you need: 

  • 1 cup old fashioned or quick oats
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder 
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 really ripe banana
  • 1/4 cup 100% maple syrup (or if not vegan, you can use honey)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted if solid)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips (or your preference)
What to do:
  1. Make oatmeal into "flour" by pulsing in a blender until smooth like flour (like 30 seconds)
  2. Mix oat flour with the rest of the dry ingredients
  3. In a separate bowl, mash a the banana with a fork (fun for kids...and adults).
  4. Add the rest of the wet ingredients to the banana and blend well
  5. Add blended dry ingredients to blended wet ingredients and stir until mixed
  6. Fold in chocolate chips
  7. Chill for 15 minutes in the fridge (it's going to be super sticky...this will make it easier to get on the pan)
  8. While the dough chills, preheat the oven and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (these puppies will stick like crazy to the pan if not).
  9. Use cookie dough scoop to place dough on pan and flatten a bit with the back of the scoop
  10. Bake for 10 minutes or so
  11. Cool and enjoy!
