Most people a big fans of the traditional Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, however, if you are following a paleo diet lifestyle oats are not something to be eaten along with wheat flours. So with lots of research and trial and error, I have found the next best cookie. To gain the chewiness you would normally get from the oats is swapped out for the coconut flakes. Give these a try and let me know what you think of this unique twist on the traditional oatmeal raisin cookies.
3 ripe bananas
¼ cup applesauce
3 cups almond meal
½ cup coconut flour
