This recipe for Healthy Coconut Banana Cookies recipe is inspired by one of my favorite healthy cookie recipes – Healthy Banana Cookies.  These cookies are naturally sweetened with dates and bananas, which is always a delicious combination.  I decided to give that recipe a coconut twist by using coconut oil and adding some coconut.  Coconut was such a tasty addition that goes so well with the banana.  

Healthy Coconut Banana Cookies are economical, great for on-the-go and can be mixed together in minutes using simple ingredients such as oats, fruit, coconut oil and some flavorings.  The result is a healthy, delicious cookie that is perfect for a power snack, a healthy dessert or an easy breakfast.  These cookies pack well to be enjoyed at the zoo, at a park, on the way to school or work – any time is a good time to enjoy Healthy Coconut Banana Cookies!

Healthy Coconut Banana Cookies

Yield: 24 cookies

Ingredients

  • 3 overripe bananas
  • 2 cups oats (old fashioned or quick work fine)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 8 ounces pitted dates, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened flaked coconut, plus additional for topping
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mash bananas. Mix in oats, coconut oil, dates, coconut and vanilla and stir to combine. Let sit for 15 minutes.
  3. Scoop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough and place on cookie sheet, two-inches apart. (Note: cookies do not spread, so you may want to shape them with the back of the spoon). Bake for 20 minutes, or until cookies set and start to brown. Remove from oven and let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Move to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

These cookies are best enjoyed the next day!
