- 1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill almond flour
- 1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill coconut flour
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 2 tbsp Bob's Red Mill flaxseed meal
- 2 tbsp unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
- 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 medium overripe bananas (the riper the better)
- 1 cup grated zucchini (don't squeeze water out)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, a Silipat, or spray with cooking spray.
- In a medium mixing bowl, stir together almond flour, coconut flour, coconut sugar, flax, shredded coconut, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
- In another medium bowl, mash bananas with a fork. Stir in shredded zucchini and vanilla extract until combined.
- Add wet mixture to dry mixture and stir until combined. Form round, golf-ball sized balls of dough and spread evenly on baking sheet. Pat each cookie down lightly with fingers since they will not spread in the oven.
- Bake for about 23 minutes. Remove from oven and place baking sheet on a cooling rack. I topped mine with additional coconut when they came out of the oven.Cool completely before removing from pan. Store in the refrigerator in an air-tight container.
