Chewy Banana Spice Cookies
Serves: Makes 12 cookies
 
Free of grains, dairy, nuts/seeds, eggs and refined sugar. these cookies are suitable for the Autoimmune Paleo protocol. I enjoy the cookies without the sweetener and find that the banana and cinnamon is sweet enough. If you are used to sweet treats, however, you will probably prefer the version with sweetener.
Ingredients
  • 2 medium well-spotted bananas, mashed (about ¾ cup mashed)
  • 2 Tbs. water for a not-very-sweet cookie OR 2 Tbs. maple syrup
  • 2 Tbs. dry gelatin, I like this grassfed gelatin
  • 30 grams (1/4 cup) coconut flour - use a kitchen scale for the most accurate measurement
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. arrowroot flour, which you can find here
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Stir together the mashed bananas, dry gelatin and water OR maple syrup in a bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Let sit for another 5 minutes.
  3. Roll the dough into balls and flatten into ¼ inch thick cookies. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden around the edges.
  4. Cool at least 30 minutes before removing cookies from the parchment-lined baking sheets (otherwise, the cookies will tear).
  5. These chewy cookies are best consumed the day they are made however you can store them in an air-tight container at room temperature for a day or so.
