banana chocolate chip protein cookies


it’s true. i love my bananas.
but, i can only eat bananas that have no brown spots. i do not like ripe bananas. i don’t know why, but i don’t.
i do like to bake with ripe bananas. add some chocolate chips and it’s perfection. just ask my regular customers at the coffeeshop i used to work at. I was known for always making banana chocolate chip muffins. every weekend. and they did not disappoint.
i didn’t want muffins tonight. i actually listened to my body today and went out on a limb and decided to make some cookies.
and because i was still feeling like a risk taker, made them with lots of protein. and “healthified” them a bit. what turned out was a fluffy pillow-like cookie. and i loved it.

Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies
makes about 25 cookies
slightly adapated from girlmeetslife.com

1.5 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or all purpose)
3/4 cup vanilla protein powder (i used EAS)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 mashed bananas
2 tbsp agave nectar or honey (or sweetener of choice)
1 tbsp coconut oil (or canola, applesauce, etc)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (or milk of choice)
3 tbsp chocolate chips (i used hersheys dark)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.

Combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl.

Combine wet and dry ingredients together.Put about 1-2 tbsp of batter onto sprayed cookie sheets and bake for approximately 10-12 minutes. The protein powder makes the cookies expand.

Mission accomplished.
and check out the stats on these babies!

5g of protein per cookie? Perfectly okay to eat for breakfast, right?
