Banana +Coconut Milk “Cookies”

IMG_7098 IMG_7126 IMG_7120 IMG_7119 IMG_7128

As you can see, I was fortunate enough to have my very own little kitchen minion while making this recipe. He was the sweetest ever, saying “cookie” the entire time. Even trying to swipe a few finger fulls of batter as I spooned it out onto the pan…

Also, we may or may not have been a few bites short of three bananas this batch… ;)

I swiped this recipe from my mother-in-law recently, which she had scribbled down on a sticky note out of a magazine somewhere… so unfortunately I can’t really give credit to whomever devised this genius concoction.

Originally this recipe calls for almond milk instead of coconut milk.  But of course, in typical Laura style, I have to substitute something because I’m always too impatient to wait and try out a recipe when I actually have all the ingredients… [insert monkey covering his face emoji here].

But they turned out delicious! Wyatt opted to eat three of these instead of his lunch, but because they are so nutritious, who am I to say no?  I love being able to utter the phrase: “Wyatt, you can eat as many cookies as you want.”  It makes me feel like the best mom ever ;)

In addition to satisfying your sweet tooth, these “cookies” also make for great breakfast bar/bites for a morning that leaves you rushing out the door!

Enjoy!
