Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 yellow banana
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 heaping tbsp unsweetened almond butter (smooth or crunchy, well mixed)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 scoop Rootz Paleo Superfood Protein (*changed from 2 scoops to 1 since the scoop got bigger)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 heaping cup of chocolate chips, or chocolate bar (with espresso!)
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)

  2. In a bowl add in the peeled banana and use a fork to mash it.
  3. Add in the coconut oil, almond butter, vanilla extract, and the egg.
  4. Mix well, until mostly smooth.
  5. Add in the protein powder, baking soda, and salt.
  6. Mix well.
  7. Fold in the chocolate, and pecans and fold them in.
  8. Use a nonstick baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
  9. The batter will be dark in color because of the protein, but when they bak they will be caramel color with a slight green tinge.
  10. Drop tablespoons of soft cookie dough 2 inches apart.
  11. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until they brown lightly.
  12. Let cool. Use a thin spatula to scrape off the sheet pan.
