Coconut-Berry Power Cookies
Our first Living Well Recipe! Beginning in 2015 we will enjoy a "'living well" menu item at each of our Monthly Themed Tea Parties. Recipes will be included!
- 3 large ripe bananas, well mashed
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, slightly warmed
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups rolled oats or gluten-free oats
- 2/3 cup almond meal
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2/3 cup shredded coconut (preferably unsweetened)
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1/4 cup goji berries (or any mix in!)
In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork, and then add in coconut oil and vanilla. Add the oats, almond meal, salt and baking powder, and stir until combined. Add the coconut, pecans, and goji berries - stir once again. Form the dough into 12 balls on a parchment lined baking sheet and flatten just a little bit. Bake at 350° for about 14-16 minutes.
Teashop family - Wren and Haden both eat these at volleyball tournaments, and Haden between swim events at a meet. Lots of energy and very filling. Enjoy with a cup of matcha for one power packed pick-me-up.
