These almond flour banana cookies are made with 100% good for you ingredients and have zero added sugar. ← And I’m fully aware that under most circumstances those two statements would not be a cookie selling feature, but these are paleo breakfast cookies so I guessing that if you’re here it’s because you want a healthy cookie recipe. So let’s not try to hide it. These paleo cookies are all the good and healthy things.


  • 2 medium ripe bananas (sliced (+ slices for topping, optional))
  • ½ cup almond butter (can sub peanut butter if not paleo)
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup coconut
  • ¼ cup raisins


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Add the banana slices, almond butter, water, and vanilla to a large bowl and beat with electric beaters until mostly smooth. Add the almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt, and beat until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut, and raisins. 2 medium ripe bananas, ½ cup almond butter, ¼ cup water, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, 1 cup almond flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ cup dark chocolate chips, ¼ cup chopped walnuts, ¼ cup coconut, ¼ cup raisins
  3. Drop the dough (it will be sticky) into 12 equal mounds on the baking sheets. Press a banana slice into the top of each cookie to flatten it out a little.
  4. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden then remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool.
