3 Ingredient Coconut Cookies

TIME: 15 minutes

SERVES: 21 cookies


3 bananas

2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

3/4 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2) In a bowl, mash the banana slightly. Then, add the vanilla and continue to mash into banana mush.

3) Stir in the coconut until it is well combined. This should create a consistency similar to mashed potatoes. How wet or dry the mixture is will depend on the bananas.

4) Scoop 1-2 tbsp of the mixture at a time and roll them into into balls. Place them on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and press them down with a fork, crossways like you would for a traditional peanut butter cookie.

5) Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for about 11 minutes. Check them to make sure they are starting to brown around the edges.

6) Change the oven setting from bake to broil and leave them for another 1-5 minutes. Watch them carefully because they can burn quickly. You are just looking for them to start browning in spots.

7) Remove and let cool enough to comfortably handle them before removing them from the cookie sheet. Eat or store in the fridge for up to 1 week.

They’re a hit with kids and adults alike! Give them a try, and I know they’ll become your go-to sunday night baking!
