These double chocolate chip banana cookies are super-soft and moist for a delicious treat. Sweetened with bananas and a little additional sweetener, if you desire. Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free.
It’s been awhile since I posted a cookie recipe. In fact, the last one I posted was my chai shortbread cookie recipe back at the beginning of April. I do occasionally like something sweet, but when I’m following a low-carb way of eating, as I usually do, I find that my craving for sweet things has really diminished.
I certainly do like to indulge in a bit of dessert every now and again though, don’t get me wrong. When that urge strikes, I do like to stick to either a natural sweetener, such as stevia, or a bit of naturally sweet fruit, such as bananas. Refined sugar makes me feel like a zombie, and I do like my brain best when it is not zombiefied.
Of course from the title, you already expect that bananas will be making a starring appearance in these cookies, and they certainly do!
These double chocolate chip banana cookies are pretty much everything you would expect, according to the name, but they are also a lot more. They are nice and moist, and have a kind of cake-like texture. As I was eating one, I thought to myself that these could also make incredible muffins if I just tweaked the recipe slightly.
They are also one of the easiest cookie recipes I have ever made. You only need one bowl and you’re good to go. I recommend using fairly ripe bananas, but yellow bananas are just fine if you don’t want super-sweet cookies.
Start by mashing the bananas in the bowl with a fork. It’s ok if there are some small clumps, but you don’t want big chunks of banana in the cookies.Add in your eggs, apple cider vinegar and vanilla extract, and mix until well-incorporated.
Stir in cocoa powder, sweetener and baking soda. Slowly add in the coconut flour until the dough is no longer sticky. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips and spoon onto a baking sheet. The batter should make approximately 8-10 cookies.
