Banana Oatmeal Coconut Cookies
These banana oatmeal coconut cookies are the perfect sweet treat. They're also great if you have one lonely banana that's slowly turning black.
Servings 12 cookies
- 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup coconut flakes (sweetened)
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 medium ripe banana (peeled and mashed with a fork)
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup oats (rolled or quick oats)
- 1/4 cup warm water
Begin by preheating your oven to 325 degrees and greasing two baking sheets.
Next, in a large mixing bowl add the dry ingredients (flour, coconut, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and oats). Mix well with a large spoon.
Next, add the wet ingredients. Mix well with a hand mixer.
Use a medium cookie scoop (about 1 1/2 tablespoons if you do not have a cookie scoop) and drop the cookies in balls onto your baking sheets.
Bake for 10 to 11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let them rest on the baking sheets for at least five minutes.
