Chewy Chunky Monkey Breakfast Cookies

With the holidays now approaching I am going to be getting busy making and creating healthier, no-GMO, grain-free, nut-free, and naturally sweeter versions of some traditional favorites. Also, I am ALWAYS looking for more portable snacks and treat for my growing babies. I make a zillion varieties of healthy muffins for them, but these cookies may be a new go-to!

I can’t even tell you how excited I was when I started playing with this recipe and I got the dough to  form beautifully. My fingers were crossed that they not only came out okay when baked, but that they tasted great as well!

Soft & Chewy Chunky Monkey Breakfast Cookies

yield: 20 cookies

{grain-free, dairy-free, nut-free,  no sweetener added, Paleo-friendly!}

ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut butter or grass-fed butter, unsalted
  • 1 medium ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup pitted Medjool dates, soaked to soften (about 6-8 dates)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (fresh grated best! If not jarred is fine!)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (I use Enjoy Life mini chips..they’re no GMO and allergen-free)
  • 1/4 cup banana chips (if store bought make sure they’re cooked in coconut oil)
  • 2 TBSP chopped coconut chips, optional

directions:

Place mashed banana, vanilla and coconut butter in a stand mixer (or bowl with handheld mixer) and whip together. Add flour, ground flax, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl and whisk, set aside. Add dates to wet mix and fold in. Start to add dry ingredients to wet slowly stir to combine. Add eggs one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Run banana chips through a mini food processor so they are in small chunks. Fold in chocolate chips, coconut (if using), and banana chips. Use a small cookie scooper to form cookies on a parchment lines cookie sheet. Flatten tops slightly with a spoon. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Feel free to add some walnuts to make them truly like chunky monkey! Ella’s school is nut-free, and so is our home now because of Jaxon,  so I wanted to create something she could bring there, or even share with friends over the holiday season! Enjoy!
