“These are easy and nutritious cookies that your child will absolutely love. I especially love these because I can send them to school – yes they are peanut free! “

Yields: about 36 cookies


  • 3 ripe bananas, well mashed
  • ¼ cup coconut oil or butter
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 2 cups oatmeal flakes
  • 2/3 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1/3 cup organic shredded coconut flakes
  • 1 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate chips (my fav are Camino)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Combine mashed bananas, pure vanilla extract and coconut oil in a large bowl.
  3. In another bowl, mix the oats, quinoa flakes, shredded coconut, cinnamon, sea salt and baking powder.
  4. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and stir until combined. Add the chocolate chips.
  5. Drop a tablespoon-full at a time onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet, about an inch apart.
  6. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
