Coconut-banana cookies

baked cookies on parchment paper on a cookie sheet
I was craving a cookie today but was trying to eat healthy. This one fits both since it is mostly good-for-you. Even craig loves them and he hates raisins 'in things'. Perfect with a cup of earl grey. I am physically not able to eat just one. 

Yield: 20 cookies

Mix in a large bowl:

3 large ripe bananas mashed (the riper the better) 
2 tsp vanilla
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil

Set aside.

In another bowl, mix:

2 1/2 cup rolled oats
6 tablespoons unsweetened shredded coconut
2/3 cup almond meal (grind almonds in a coffee grinder)
1 tsp teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup organic raisins (or dark choc chips)

Add to the banana mixture. The dough will be the texture of porridge.

Preheat oven to 350°F

Drop by heaping teaspoon onto a parchment lined baking sheet. 
Bake for 14 minutes. Let cool to set. Enjoy (try to eat just one).
