Makes 12 Cookies
1 1/2 cups unsalted blanched almonds
2 very ripe bananas
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
1/2 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350° F.
- Place the almonds in a food processor and pulse until ground to a near flour-like consistency.
- In a mixing bowl, mash bananas into a paste. Add the brown sugar, peanut butter, baking soda, salt, and ground almonds and stir until evenly combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
- Form each cookie by dropping 2 tablespoons of the batter onto a cookie sheet, leaving at least 3 inches between cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the edges are brown.
