Nutty Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are super simple and slightly altered from the "Everything Healthy" blog. I added in some almond butter and instead of using quick oats I decided to try them with coconut flour. Click here to check out the "Everything Healthy" blog. I plan on using these cookies as pre-workout fuel because they are a little more carby than what I normally eat. I am happy that there is not any added sweetener, maybe adding an egg and taking out a banana could cut the natural sugars?

Unfortunately my grocery store was out of dark chocolate chips so this recipe uses the standard semi-sweet ones. Next time I am going to cut up dark chocolate if this happens again. This one is a work in progress, if you have any suggestions let me know:)

Heads up do not taste the batter, you will want to eat ALL of it!

-2 small browned bananas
-3 tablespoons of almond butter
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-1/2 cup of coconut flour
