These protein cookies are nut-free, gluten free, egg-free, dairy-free and do not have any artificial sweeteners. They are really tasty to have at breakfast with coffee or tea.



  • 1 Medium ripe banana
  • 2 Tbsp vanilla pea protein
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 heaping teaspoon pumpkin seed butter
  • 1 Tbsp agave syrup or honey
  • 3 Tbsp coconut or rice milk


  1. Using a handheld blender or fork, blend all the ingredients together.
  2. Drop heaping spoonfuls on a cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick spray.
  3. Press them down with a fork to flatten them.

  4. Bake them at 350 degrees F for about 30 minutes, or until they look golden on top and are cooked through.
  5. Take them out and put them someplace to cool. Enjoy.

I remember my mother baking her special Banana Chocolate Chip cookies. Before baking she would roll the circles of dough into crushed corn flakes, sugar and cinnamon. The cookies were cake like and kept for a long time because they were sealed in that sugar mixture. Does anyone have a recipe like this? I have looked all over and I found a lot of good cookie recipes, but not this one that I am hoping to find.

So far, I'm not finding these...but I've got the people at yahoo answers looking for ya too. :)
the closest so far isn't chocolate chip, but butterscotch:
Banana Nut Butterscotch Drop Cookies- this is a drop cookies, so drop them onto a mix of corn flakes, sugar and cinnamon.

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 dashes nutmeg
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 cup ripe bananas
1/2 teaspoon banana flavoring
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 bag butterscotch chips

1. Mix dry ingedients together set aside.

2. Cream sugar and butter, add eggs mixing in well, stir in bananas and flavoring, add dry ingredients and oatmeal fold in nuts and chips (The dough may seem a little sticky and you may be tempted to add more flour, but first try baking off a few. Found that adding more flour made them dry after baking, the oatmeal seems to swell some during the baking process).


3. Drop onto lightly greased baking sheet, bake at 375' 10-12 minutes.
