Bananas – those sunny, yellow fruits used in everything from smoothies to baking to just fantastic for an on-the-go snack. We all know bananas are great for getting your daily potassium, but what to do with those bananas that get just a bit too brown for your lunch box?

Here’s something for that next time you end up with a bunch of browning bananas and want something extremely quick and easy to make with them.



  • 2 medium over-ripe bananas
  • 1 ½ cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 Tbsp Moringa powder

Optional add-ins:

  • Cocoa nibs or chocolate chips
  • Walnuts or other nuts
  • Peanut butter
  • Cinnamon or vanilla beans

Try to keep your add-ins to a minimum to allow the banana to act as a binder and keep the cookies together.


Put bananas and coconut flakes (or oats if you don’t have coconut flakes handy) into a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is even, but not smooth – texture is good!

Toss add-ins of choices and fold into mixture.

Form balls of cookie batter or use a spoon to drop mixture on a tray and press to flatten for even cooking.

Heat oven to 350° F and bake cookies for 20-25 minutes or until golden. If using oats, change cooking time to 15 minutes or until set.

If you have a food dehydrator, this will also work really well using a 130° F or so overnight (6-8 hours).

Makes about 15 cookies.
