I made these on a whim. Because I was craving cookies.
Is there ever a time when I don’t crave cookies?
So… I made cookies. And giant cookies they were.
These not so skinny little mounds were inspired by a recipe from Multiply Delicious blog for Paleo Banana Chocolate Chip Cakies, and as delicious they looked, my Fatties definitely tasted. Since these were so darn big, I had to give them a name worthy of their magnitude.
Loaded with lusciously, healthy fats and basking the golden sun of the oven prongs, these chocolate-scattered cookies are keepers. Well, the recipe is.
Since this recipe makes some pretty wholesome and filling, not to mention large and in charge, cookies, the name given at birth was…
Paleo Chocolate Chip Fatties.
Sounds pretty darn good doesn’t it? They just scream ‘Make, Eat, Repeat!’
Paleo Chocolate Chip Fatties
The “just because they’re fatties, doesn’t mean you can’t get skinny eating them” cookies
Gluten, grain, and wheat-free, sugar-free, and loaded with healthy fats.
cookies Fatties, or 12 Skinnies. Inspired by Multiply Delicious’ Paleo Banana Chocolate Chip Cakies
- 1 medium banana
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2 tbsp almond milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- pinch salt
- chocolate chips, as many or as little as you’d like
Preheat the oven for 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mash the banana, avocado, egg, and almond milk together until mostly smooth. Add in the coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt and stir well.
With an ice cream scooper (or a large spoon) pick up enough dough to fill the scooper and place onto parchment paper. Repeat until all batter is gone.
Bake Fatties for 20 minutes or until gooey or crispy to your liking. 15-20 minutes give these a wonderful crisp on the outside but a melty chocolatey goo on the inside. Perfection!
For a slightly sweeter cookie, add in coconut sugar, honey, or other sweetener of choice- about 2-4 tbsp would do the trick.
