Banana Nut and Seed Cookies

Banana Cookies2

These cookies have saved me a few times. Truly. It is always essential to have snacks on hand when I have a long day of meetings or errands. These cookies are full of protein, whole-food fat, fiber, nutrients…and they are yummy! I feel like I am eating trail mix in a cookie form when I devour these. I sometimes eat one of these cookies for breakfast alongside a green smoothie. A good start to the day. I have also taken these cookies on some hikes and on several cross country vacations…see, they really have saved me when there has been no food in the vicinity! I’m sure these cookies will come to your rescue too!

2 medium ripe bananas

1/3 cup Coconut Palm Sugar

2 tablespoons applesauce

2 tablespoons ground flaxseed

1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1/4 cup raw pecans, chopped

1/4 cup macadamia nuts, chopped

1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds

1/4 cup sesame seeds

1/4 cup hemp hearts

1/4 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup quinoa flakes

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon cardamom

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat the oven to 350º F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat liner. In the bottom of a large bowl, mash the bananas until mostly smooth with very few chunks. Add the coconut sugar, applesauce, and flaxseed. Stir to combine. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Drop the dough onto the lined baking sheet, using a large cookie scoop. Flatten the cookies with your fingertips to about 1/2-inch thick. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown and just firm to the touch, rotating the pan once halfway through. Cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container or wrap and freeze.
