Sissy's vegan cookies

Submitted by:
This recipe was given to me by my sister and i think they are really tasty. I used mostly flax meal rather than almond meal b/c that's what I had. The great thing is that it's really flexible. My friend Tara has made them too and really likes them.

Ingredients

3 large ripe bananas, well mashed

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 cup virgin coconut oil/butter

2 cups rolled oats (not instant)

1 cup almond meal (i use raw almonds and grind them in the coffee grinder, leaving kinda chunky)

1/3 cup shredded dried coconut

1/3 cup pecan or walnut pieces(or any nut you like)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

chocolate chips or carob chips--as much as you like



optional: ~1/2 cup peanut butter (or more!)

Method

(i always line the baking sheets with parchment paper--it might not be necessary, but i couldn't say for sure)



preheat oven: 350 degrees



*all measurements are somewhat approximate,,,the dough, when ready to drop into balls on the cookie sheet,
should be pretty gooey, and should hardly hold together....just lightly press them into little balls...you can always add more dry ingredients to balance it out if the added peanut butter makes them too gooey...but i find that
they turn out really moist and delicious if the dough is really gooey and unmanageable



mash bananas with a fork in a bowl and set aside...soften peanut butter and coconut oil together on the stove-top
(to make these ingredients more manageable)...combine all wet ingredients together in one bowl (mashed bananas, vanilla, coconut oil, peanut butter)...combine all dry ingredients into a different bowl (oats, almond meal, nuts, shredded coconut, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder)...add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir...fold in chocolate/carob chunks/chips...drop dollops of dough about and inch apart on parchment-lined baking sheet...
bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the tops get a little brown...let them sit on the cookie sheet for a couple minutes before shoveling them onto a cooling rack or plate...enjoy!
