  • Form small cookie shaped discs, using your hands, and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat until you have made twelve cookies.
  • Use the back of a spoon or your finger to create a small hole in the center of each cookie.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the cookies are lightly golden and set through.
  • Melt chocolate chip in the microwave or over a double boiler. Stir in coconut oil.
  • Once the cookies have cooled, drizzle chocolate over the top of each cookie.
  • Pop in the fridge for one hour to allow the chocolate to set up. Enjoy!



*Be sure to buy vegan chocolate chips to keep this recipe 100% plant-based.  I like these.
**If you want to add a bit more flavor, stir in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and a pinch of salt when adding in the coconut.
***To create more depth of flavor, toast the shredded coconut in a dry pan until golden brown.  Cool completely before adding to the bananas.
