2/3 cup almond meal*
1/3 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Blend bananas, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together oats, almond meal, coconut, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in the add-ins.
  5. Drop dollops of the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

* You can make almond meal in a food processor or high-powered blender, by gently pulsing a cup of almonds. Be careful not to over process or you’ll be making almond butter cookies!
