Ingredients
  • med/large banana overripe, mashed well
  • 1/2 cup smooth almond butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil solid but soft
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp  sea salt
  • 1/2 cup blueberries fresh or frozen berries, thawed
 Directions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line 1 or 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk or use an electric hand mixer (recommended) to combine the mashed banana, almond butter, egg, maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla until smooth.
  3. Slowly mix in with a wooden spoon almond flour, baking soda and salt.
  4. Fold the blueberries in, then chill in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes. The dough should be sticky but moldable.
  5. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop 16 cookies on to the prepared baking sheets and gently press each one down just a bit in the center.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until set, remove from oven, wait 2 minutes, then transfer carefully to cooling racks to cool completely.
  7. Store leftovers loosely covered at room temperature to maintain the texture. Enjoy!
