Banana Coconut Dark Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies

Sometimes you just need a little something sweet, but if you're anything like me, the ever so delicious girlscout cookies will give you a carb hang over that may last for days.  Side note: have you read the ingredients on a box of girl scout cookies lately? Unfortunately I had a box in my possession recently because my mom knows how much I love Somoa's.  These things have at least 50 ingredients, half of which I have never even heard of and sound more like chemicals then an ingredient in a cookie.  All those ingredients for one tiny cookie?? Banana coconut dark chocolate chip cookies have simple ingredients that you can pronounce.  Just because they have good ingredients, there is still sugar in the chocolate and bananas, so unless you are my boyfriend who can eat 10 of these in one sitting and will never gain an ounce, then I don't reccommend eating them all to your face at once. :)

‎3 bananas (mashed)
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
2/3 cup almond meal
1/3 c unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp celtic sea salt
1 tsp baking powder
6 oz dark chocolate chips
recipe called for 2 cups of thanks to that, I added 1/2 c chopped almonds and some extra shredded coconut
**Mix all dry ingredients, then add mashed bananas and melted coconut oil to mixture.  I kinda made these cookies like meatballs and rolled them up and just plopped them on a Coconut Oil sprayed cookie sheet.
bake for 15mins @350.
