Jess's Paleo Life – Health, Happiness & Love

The weather at the moment is so unpredictable.  One minute it’s pouring down with rain and the next minute it’s sunny, then you blink and its overcast again.  Aaahhh summer in North Queensland.

I love summer! For so many reasons.  I love the sun, the beach, the beautiful summer fruits and air conditioning (sometimes the humidity is just way too much).  This brings me to…bananas.

We have so many bananas! They are so cheap at the moment and the kids aren’t eating them as quick as they usually do so I’ve been freezing some and baking with some.  Remember the banana bread? Well yesterday I wanted to cook something for the kids after school but I didn’t have an hour to spare….hmmmm the dilemma.  Ah-huh I know, banana bread cookies!  Genius, I know :-)

I made them again today, just to road test the recipe to make sure it wasn’t just a fluke the first time…nope it wasn’t…they are GOOD! I made them 3 different ways…ready?? Ginger Banana Bread Cookies…Chocolate Banana Bread Cookies….and Banana Bread Cookies.  Go try them…you’ll love them. The recipe makes 35 cookies.

Paleo Chocolate Banana Bread Cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to a moderately heat, 180 degrees Celsius.
  2. Place the macadamia nuts in the food processor and turn it on.  Let it process the nuts until it turns into butter, about 2-3 minutes is all it takes.
  3. Add the bananas and egg and let it process again until it makes a nice smooth batter.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth and well mixed.
  5. Line a cookie tray with baking paper. Take heaped tablespoon amounts of the mixture and place them on the cookie tray, and place it in the oven.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
  7. Let them cool on the tray before removing them.

  1. Ahhhh I need macadamia nuts! That’s the only thing I don’t have in the pantry. It’s on my list so I can make these. They’d make great little sandwiches for school with sun butter in the middle :)

  2. I love banana bread- banana bread cookies? Genius!
