Gluten Free Banana Bread Cookies

ImageIt’s game day. I was just itching for a cookie this afternoon. Cowboys, Redskins both playing today –ah, the excitement! Sometimes you just have to munch on a sweet treat. However, with this awesome recipe, you can munch all you want guilt and gluten free!

I got this recipe from ‘What Runs Lori’ blog. I modified it a little bit – for my taste. I call them Banana Bread Cookies! These cookies are fantastic ladies and gents. You will be making these for parties, events, the office – whatever floats your boat. They are even good for breakfast. A cookie – for breakfast!? That’s right. OK, let’s get cooking.

You will need: 1 cup coconut flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp sea salt, 2 ripe bananas, 1/2 ripe avocado, 1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice), 4 tbsp honey ( I put in an extra one!), 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar, 2 tsp vanilla extract, 2 cage free eggs, 1/4 cup shredded coconut.

Disclaimer: I only root for the Redskins when they do not play the Cowboys. This Texas girl has standards.

You do not have to add coconut shreds, believe me – I know some people are not wild about coconut. You can try cranberries, chocolate chips or maybe walnuts!

First, mix in all the dry ingredients into a little bowl. Put in the flour, coconut shreds, baking powder and soda, sea salt.

In a separate bigger bowl, pour in all the wet ingredients. You might want to mash up the bananas and avocado before adding in the milk, vanilla, honey, apple cider vinegar and eggs. Stir all together.

Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ones. Mix in – make sure there are no green clumps from the avocado. And, preheat the oven to 375.

Make the mixture into little balls – and put them on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.

Now, you have some crowd pleasing game day cookies. Guilt and gluten free!
