Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

3 large, ripe bananas

1/2 cup almond butter (I used roasted, but I’m guessing any natural nut butter would work)

1/4 olive oil (I actually did half olive and half vegetable just because I ran out – it worked just fine)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 cups oats

1/3 cup shredded coconut (optional)

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 – 1 cup chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips (I used the dairy, soy, nut free chunks)

In a large bowl mash the bananas with the almond butter, oil, and vanilla. Stir in the oats, coconut, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add the chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes at 350. Makes about two dozen.
