Banana Cinnamon Chia “Cookies”

If you missed my post on falling off the 21 day sugar detox wagon, go read it, it’s not often I share my failures with the world! Since I’m still trying to stay away from added sugars and *sweets* I have to get creative when I want a treat. I used a recipe from the 21 day sugar detox book for cookies and made it my own by eliminating a couple ingredients and adding some other fun things. I personally think they taste great, your husband might come up to your cookie pan and tell you they look like owl sh$t. Not saying that happened at all. It did. Really though give these a shot, they’re a nice substitute to sugar laden cookies.

Banana Cinnamon Chia Cookies (adapted from the 21 DSD Not-Sweet Cinnamon Cookies)

Ingredients

1 over ripe banana

2 eggs

2 teaspoons melted coconut oil or coconut butter

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

2 tablespoons coconut flour

2 tablespoons flaxseed meal

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon chia seeds

pinch of sea salt

 

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 12-13 minutes

Yield: 10 cookies

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

In a mixing bowl whisk together the egg, banana, coconut oil, and vanilla

Sift the coconut flour, cinnamon, flaxseed meal, chia seeds, and salt

Mix the two together

Drop onto a greased cookie sheet (they’re going to be a little runny)

Bake for 12-13 minutes at 350 degrees or once they start to brown on the edges

They’re going to come out a little flat but they are soft and yummy!
