These easy and delicious vegan paleo Dark Chocolate Banana Coconut Cookies are a wonderful healthy treat!
Even though I like to keep the oven off as much as possible during the scorching southern summers we live through, I’m not against turning it on every now and again for something special. Like these Dark Chocolate Banana Coconut Cookies.
Better with chocolate.
A few years ago I whipped up some paleo Banana Coconut Cookies and shared the recipe over at my friend Trisha’s blog. They were such a hit, I knew that I needed to make a chocolate version, too! ‘Cause everything is better with chocolate in it.
Am I right, or am I right? I’m right.
So a few weeks ago I amended my family-favorite recipe to be chocolatey. And my kids devoured them. It was one of those times when I had to fight them off with spoons and towels so I could get some good pictures before the cookies disappeared.
Dark Chocolate Banana Coconut Cookies.
If you’re a fan of bananas, coconut, and/or chocolate, you’re going to love these cookies. They’re super easy to whip up, and healthy enough for a midweek treat. And they’re not only a favorite with the kiddos, either. My hubby enjoyed them as well!
You can also add in nuts, if you like those. I prefer walnuts in my cookies, but pecans, almonds, or even peanuts would be delicious in these little treats, too.
In the recipe card I’ve linked to some of the products from my affiliate partners that I like to use. Purchasing through these links won’t cost you anything extra. Thanks!
Dark Chocolate Banana Coconut Cookies
Free of gluten, grain, eggs, dairy, and refined sugar.
- 2 bananas, mashed (about 1 1/2 cups)
- 1 1/3 c. shredded coconut
- 1/4 c. cocoa powder
- 2 T. coconut flour
- 1/4 c. chopped nuts (optional)
- 1/3 c. chopped dairy-free chocolate or dairy-free chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix everything in a bowl. Let sit for a few minutes so the coconut flour can soak up some of the liquid in the bananas.
Place spoonfuls of dough on a parchment-lined, or lightly greased, cookie sheet. Gently press down with a fork until cookies are about 1/2-inch thick.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly crispy.
Allow to cool a few minutes before removing from the pan.
