Sweet Treat

There’s something about being snowed in that makes me want to cook!  During our storm last week, I rummaged through my kitchen to see what I could pull together for a healthy sweet treat!  I came up with bananas, pumpkin and coconut then perused Pintrest for some inspiration.  I adapted my recipe from a pumpkin cookie dough recipe I found.

*My snowed in sweet treat*

1/2 c Almond Butter (Raw Un-salted)
1 15oz Can Organic Pumpkin Puree
2 Ripe Bananas
2 Tbl Coconut Butter
2 Tbl Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
1/2 c Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (gluten, dairy & nut free)
Allspice & Cinnamon to taste
1/8 tsp Baking Soda


1. Pre-heat oven to 350.  In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond butter, bananas and pumpkin puree.

2. Add cinnamon and allspice to taste.

3.  Add two tablespoon of softened coconut butter, 2 tablespoons of unsweetened coconut and 1/2 c chocolate chips.

4. Use a melon baller to measure out dough and place on parchment lined baking sheet.

5. Sprinkle the top of each cookie with crushed coconut flakes.

6. Bake @ 350 for 25 minutes.  These cookies are very very soft and will not firm up much.  Keep them in a Tupperware container in the fridge to store.
