I've got another batch of these babies in the oven as I type, so it's time to get this recipe on record. This is another one from Bread & Wine. These "cookies" are free of sugar, gluten, and almost anything else that makes them dessert (I say 'almost' because there are just a small handful of chocolate chips). You can have them in the oven in the time it takes it to preheat. Your children will love eating cookies for breakfast, your husband will appreciate a home cooked meal he can grab on the way out the door, and you will feel happy that you can shove a nutritious bite down your gullet as you scurry everyone out the door and into the car. I stored our leftover cookies in the fridge (just for texture purposes), and we ate off them for 3 mornings. I bet they'd be beautiful from the freezer, too. Happy Weekend, friends!
-adapted slightly from Bread & Wine
-3 large ripe bananas
-1/4 coconut oil, melted
-1 t. vanilla
-1 t. baking powder
-1/2 t. salt
-1/2 t. cinnamon (why does the author hate cinnamon??? I added this--can't imagine these without it!)
-2 cups rolled oats
-2/3 c. almond meal
-2/3 c. shredded coconut (I would like to use unsweetened, but I was out--so did use sweetened flaked coconut here)
-1/2 c. chopped pecans (she uses walnuts. Use whatever nut you like)
1/4 c. chocolate chips
In a large bowl, mash the bananas well. Stir in coconut oil and vanilla. Add baking powder, salt, cinnamon, oats, and almond meal and stir well to combine. Finally, stir in nuts, coconut, and chocolate chips. Roll these into 12 balls and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Give the cookies a little pat with your hand to flatten slightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
I do what I do because I love it. The greatest part of existing on this planet is the ability to work with other humans and see their joy come to life. That's why I work in two different worlds.
As a wedding planner, I am lucky enough to get to know couples as they go through an intense but really joyful journey. My goal is for you to focus on the marriage part, while I focus on the wedding part of. Let me take some of the work of your hands and let you two enjoy your day, enjoy the people that will be celebrating with you, and be in the moment.
As a web developer and digital marketer, I get to see your heart and soul come to life on the interwebs. We get to discuss your goals and your vision, and my hope is that I help that come to fruition. Basically, I am here to make dreams come true, and I could not think of a better way to exist.
I currently live with my fiancé and attempt to bribe him daily into letting me get a puppy. Lover of eggs and avocado toast, too many potted plants, a good Netflix binge, and swearing more than my parents would care to hear.
Let's dream together.
