Banana Chocolate-Chip Coconut Oatmeal Cookies


This is my absolute Favorite-Healthy-Cookie recipe that I've ever tried.

There are no added (processed) sugars 
and there's no butter or shortening.

The cookie dough is amazingly delicious too!

Every time, I have the hardest time not eating all 
the cookie dough before I even bake them!

Enjoy these Guilt-Free cookies!

    1. I have not tried almond flour. But I'm sure it should work out fine. Let me know how it turns out?
