Peanut Butter + Coconut + Chocolate Chunk = My Kinda Threesome

My lovely friend Carrie, (who works at the same school as me and therefore is under the same stress as me), made this kick ass cookie recipe the other day.  Carrie will forever be in my good books for bringing these to share with me on the first day of parent/teacher interviews.  Don’t know if I would have survived interviews without these Miss. Strukoff, THANK YOU xo!

Here is the link to where the recipe was found http://blogs.babble.com/family-kitchen/2011/05/18/gluten-free-peanut-butter-banana-chocolate-chunk-cookies/

I posted the ingredients with my modification here, the full recipe can be found on the web site!

Peanut Butter & Banana Chocolate Chunk Cookies

If you want these gluten-free, ensure you use gluten-free oats.

3 large, very ripe bananas *sub one or two bananas for apple sauce*
1/2 cup peanut butter, preferably all-natural (just peanuts), or almond butter *peanut butter for this lady*
1/4 cup canola or olive oil *umm I say NO to canola oil and would use coconut oil*
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned (large flake) or quick oats
1/3 cup shredded coconut (optional) *coconut is not optional if you’re me*
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 – 1 cup chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chunks

Happy Healthy Cookie Eating!
