MCLV Mange: Banana Bread Macaroons

Do you love macaroons? Do you love banana bread? Those are both rhetorical questions, obviously…

This delicious recipe filled with healthy, whole foods combines those two and brings you the cookie of 2014 – Banana Bread Macaroons.

{But really – Who’s in charge of those kind of trends? And more importantly, can I be on the committee?}

Banana-Bread-Macaroons-Vegan-Gluten-Free

Ingredients:

  • 1 Ripe Banana
  • 2 Cups Coconut {Shredded or Flaked}
  • 1/2 Cup Flour {I used coconut, but you could use almond or cashew meal as well}
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 Cup Sweetener {Maple syrup is always my first choice!}
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon

Directions:

  • Set oven for 350 degrees
  • Combine ingredients {Simple, right?}
  • Roll batter into balls & place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes – They should start to show a little color on top when they’re done
  • Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before taking them off the baking sheet

These are almost as addicting as the Coconut Cashew Cookies that I shared at the end of December. They’re basically the perfect bite-sized comfort food that’s easy to make & filled with good-for-you whole foods.

Stay tuned for the next MCLV Mange installment and check out the previous posts from this series to see what you’ve missed so far:

  1. Yes I love banana bread, the taste is delicious.

  2. I haven’t made a banana bread in forever, but it’s one of my favorite treats. Banana bread macaroons sound like a great way to retain the taste I love but change it up! Did you come up with this recipe on your own?! So impressive, Caity! :)
