4-Ingredient Samoas Cookies
These simple and delicious banana oatmeal cookies use just four ingredinets and taste like a Samoa! Make a double batch and store them in the freezer for an easy and healthy, grab-n-go snack.
Servings: 12 cookies
- 2 ripe bananas (7-8 ounces each)
- 2 cups shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips*
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
Pre-heat oven to 350ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchemnt paper or a silpat mat.
In a large bowl, mash browned bananas with the back of a fork until they are broklendown.
Stir in shredded coconut and mix until well combined.
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.
