Recipe from Winter 2014 issue of True Natural Health


Makes 20

3 large ripe bananas, mashed

1 tsp vanilla extract

60g coconut oil

120g rolled oats

60g almond meal

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp salt

100g flaked almonds

20g natural popcorn

150g dark chocolate melts


Preheat a fan-forced oven to 180ºC and line baking tray with baking paper.

In large bowl combine the wet ingredients.

In second bowl combine all dry ingredients, except for chocolate, almond flakes and popcorn.

Transfer dry ingredients and combine with wet ingredients, ensuring they are combined well with wooden spoon.

Toss in chocolate pieces, almond flakes and popcorn and stir well to combine.

Roll about a tablespoon of mixture in your hands to create a ball, place onto lined baking tray and continue until you have rolled all the mixture.

Transfer to the preheated oven and cook for 14 minutes. The cookies will be a light brown colour on top and a darker colour on the bottom.
