Cookie-ish Nuggets

Cookies will always have a place in my life but more often than not I’m looking for something that is more cookie-ish.  Something that satisfies my sweet tooth, but is also a good source of nutrition.  Well, these little nuggets fit the bill.  The recipe is based on this recipe, but I’ve tweaked it a bit below.  The good news is that most folks can eat these suckers – they’re dairy free, egg free, gluten free, and free from added sugar.  You can also add whatever you want to them – try varying the spices or adding one or more of the following: dried fruit, different nuts, coconut, candied ginger, whatever you fancy!


3 bananas, mashed (the browner the better)

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

4 scoops Gnarly Vegan Vanilla

2/3 cup almond flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup oats

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds


Preheat oven to 375F.

Mix mashed bananas, melted coconut oil, Gnarly Vegan and almond flour together.  Add salt, cinnamon and baking powder and mix well.  Finally add the oats, chocolate chips and pumpkin seeds (or any mix-ins you desire).

Place spoonfuls of dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Cook for 12ish minutes.
