Healthy Banana Cookies with Oats and Chocolate

Recipe from Rachel Swan

3 large ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup coconut oil (or butter), melted
2 cups rolled oats
2/3 cup almond meal (grind almonds in food processor or buy in bulk)
1/3 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
6-7 oz dark chocolate

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine bananas, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. Set aside. In another bowl, whisk together oats, almond meal, shredded coconut, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir until combined. Fold in the chocolate chunks/chips. The dough is a bit looser than a standard cookie dough -- don't worry about it. Drop dollops of the dough, each 2 teaspoons in size, an inch apart onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
