Apple Banana Cookies

I am pretty sure these don’t classify as “cookies” but I made them look like them so that counts.  These are delicious with the mixture of the nuts and the hidden coconut.  I ate them warm and cold and either way they are amazing.  They even managed to pass the child test, I was the big meanie because I would only let them have 1.  I hope you take the time to make these, and make lots to share with everyone, Paleo or not because you might just convert them with these :)

  1. I’m really awful and following receipes. True to form, I threw in a little too much apple and an extra banana because they were on hand and needed to be used. Immediately I saw that the batter was too thin to make cookies so I poured it into a pie pan and made bars instead. The whole house smells awesome and the bars are great! I’m calling it Banapple Bread. I’m going to make that mistake again! ;-)

  2. I just adapted this with almond meal and coconut flour, an extra banana and baking powder, soda. have done it as a breakfast slice for my kids to have. Yummy and it smells amazing!

  3. What can I use instead of coconut (shredded and oil)? I will try with some walnut oil, but need something instead of the shredded coconut. It’s the only area of palaeo I struggle with; there’s too much coconut and I absolutely cannot eat it without being sick (and for those who say “but you can’t taste it”, I say, I can detect one flake of coconut in an entire box of something else… supersensitive…)… :(

    The rest of the recipe looks amazing – so glad it can be 21DSD compliant. I like to have compliant cookies/goodies to eat while all my work colleagues stuff themselves with cake, chocolates, donuts, biscuits and other baked goodies….

  4. These were delicious. Even my husband liked them. I have a nut allergy so I substituted pumpkin seeds along with sunflower seeds….mmm really good.

  5. I have some pulp left over from making almond milk and some homemade applesauce from some apples “stolen” from this tree I found while helping a friend house hunt. Both have been sitting in the fridge waiting for a purpose. This recipe just might work. Gonna try now.

  6. Making these with a granny smith & green-tipped nanner while on my 21DSD right now! Will also be trying to sub pecans for the macadamia nuts. Peanut allergy here (tree nuts OK) – haven’t found any macadamias that are not cross-contaminated with peanuts (at least not readily available in my small midwest town).
