They’re chewy on the inside, crunchy on the out, with an after hit of sweet and sticky coconut, they are my ultimate banana and coconut cookies”¦and I am just in love with them. Perfect for your afternoon cup of tea or a quick fix when you’re craving something sweet, chewy and delicious. They’re filled with flavour and packed full of essential vitamins and minerals for your body. High in protein, potassium, fibre and manganese which is used by our bodies for a number of important activities. It helps in the process of healing wounds, forming strong cartilage and bone, ensuring proper brain and nervous system functioning and most crucially, in metabolising cholesterol, carbohydrates, and amino acids. It’s an incredible mineral and these cookies are packed full of it!
This banana and coconut cookie is the cookie that sets the bar for Guilt-Free living! So eat up and enjoy them because they’re raw, healthy and simply good good good!
Only three attempts to get these perfect as opposed to my usual five! It never ceases to amaze me how with each new recipe it takes such a fine-tuning balance of all the raw and organic ingredients to get the exact result i’m after. But if at first we don’t succeed, we must try, try, and try again – right!? Something like that :) The lemon drops on top of the banana slices in the middle of the cookie keeps the banana from going brown so make sure you don’t forget that all important step! Tag me on instagram when you give it a go @LeanLivinggirl. I hope you like them as much as I do!
Can you recommend a substitute for the almonds and Brazil nuts? I’m not allergic but I really dislike most nuts so wondered if there was a way around this because they sound delicious.
Carly, I made these yesterday. Looking at the mixture before it was baked, honestly, I had reservations, but… these are AMAZING!!! I love them! Just so crunchy and gooey and sweet! Love them, great recipe, thank you! x
Awww that’s so great to hear Nicola thank you! They are just super easy and a little too addictive!
Thanks so much for sharing feedback :) xx
P.s did you manage to find the fermented yeast?
I didn’t get around to it, but you’ve reminded me! Must hunt it down! x
This looks divine – I adore coconut and banana. On a drastic calorie cut to make weight for an event on the weekend but intend to make everything on this website once it’s over! Do you happen to have an idea how many calories there are per cookie?
It really is such a yummy combination! Haha this must be one important event! Please don’t crash diet though, it will only mean the body will retain more weight after it’s over. Ask me any questions you have on it and more than happy to help!
I’ve done the rough calorie count, it’s about 90 calories per cookie which is great! Worth mentioning though most of the calories come from the nuts which are from the healthy fats, with very little sugar meaning they won’t cause spikes in your blood sugar levels and therefore lead to weight gain like most shop-bought cookies do.
Hope that helps and thanks so much for supporting the blog! :) xx
