Banana Crunch Cookies

Banana Crunch Cookies - Grain Free

Make these crunchy cookies reminiscent of banana cream pie and pecan sandies.

They have a wonderful caramel banana flavor and the texture of a pecan sandie.

Using banana chips is they key to the crunch! I crushed the banana chips to resemble chopped nuts, and stirred them into the dough. Then I sprinkled some extra crushed banana chips on top.

You can use honey or maple syrup in this recipe.

Banana Crunch Cookies

Ingredients:

1/2 Cup of Banana Chips (I use these. The ingredients are just bananas and coconut oil)

1/2 Cup of Coconut Flour

1/4 Cup of Avocado Oil

3 Tablespoons of Coconut Butter (softened)

2 Tablespoons of Coconut Sugar

2 Tablespoons of Honey or Maple Syrup

1 Tablespoon of Grass Fed Gelatin (I used this kind)

1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla Powder (Vanilla Extract if not strict AIP)

1/4 Teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon

1/4 Teaspoon of Ground Mace

1/4 Teaspoon of Sea Salt

1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda

1/4 Teaspoon of Cream of Tartar

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350° degrees F.

Lay out a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

Crush the banana chips using a small food processor (or you can put them in a ziplock back and pound them with a rolling pin until they resemble small chopped nuts).

In a medium mixing bowl, add the avocado oil. Then, sprinkle the oil with the grass fed gelatin, and beat with an electric hand-held mixer. Add the coconut sugar and honey, beat. Soften the coconut butter in the microwave for a few seconds, then add it to the bowl and beat until creamy and incorporated. Add the coconut flour, vanilla powder, cinnamon, mace, sea salt, baking soda and cream of tartar and mix until combined. Add 3 tablespoons of crushed banana chips to the cookie dough and mix. Reserve the remaining crushed banana for the tops. Using a tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop up the dough, then pack it firmly into the scoop before releasing it onto the prepared cookie sheet. You will have 9 cookies. Flatten each cookie with the palm of your hand. Sprinkle the remaining crushed banana chips evenly onto each cookie. Bake in your preheated oven for 9 minutes.

Cool completely on the cookie sheet.

Makes 9
