I don’t know why, but I am on a cookie kick! And so far, I haven’t had a disaster yet, so I am encouraged now that I may not be such a bad baker after all!
Today’s in-the-moment recipe involves coconut flour! I bought this at Whole Foods a few weeks ago and want to continue experimenting with it. It adds such a nice, sublty sweet essence to whatever you’re making. It’s actually quite comforting!
– 1/2 banana mashed
– 2 TBS coconut flour
– 1/4 cup nondairy milk (you can add more if yours is a bit dry) – I used Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla
– 2 tsp Stevia – I use Stevia in the raw (extract)
– 1/8 tsp baking powder
DIRECTIONS: Mix together and place in oven at 350F for 15-20 min!
VERDICT: Almost tastes like a macaroon! Very good. I made 8 mini cookies. They were not chewy though and just a tad dry. I find that cooking with coconut does this – things taste drier than they normally do, not sure why. Next time, I’d probably add more of the banana…or nondairy milk…or maybe some yogurt…or maybe some egg whites? Not sure. I can’t really complain though – they were very very wonderful!
NUTRITION INFO: (per cookie, makes 8 mini cookies. I ate the whole thing)
Loved it! The whole recipe is only 124.3 calories! Crazy! Tweet me pics @Blogilates if you try this. Let me know what you did to make them more moist.
Have a fab Sunday!
