  • 2 medium (very ripe) banana

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the bananas and coconut until well blended. Stir in the chocolate chips. Shape into 16 cookies or drops and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Don't allow the cookies to touch. Bake until coconut is golden and cookies are set, approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Allow to cool to room temperature while still on the baking sheet. Store in an airtight container.

    what can you use instead of coconet milk

    • SkinnyMs  January 12, 2015

      Marie, There's no cococut milk in this recipe and there's no substitute for shredded coconut. Hope that helps.

    do these taste like bananas, or is it just for moistness? I do not like bananas

    • SkinnyMs  May 28, 2015

      While the bananas are primarily used as a natural sweetener and to bind the ingredients together, a slight banana taste is detectable. You might prefer our No-Bake Chocolate Coconut Macaroons. No bananas are used in that recipe. 🙂

    do you have to store these in the fridge because of the bananas?

    • SkinnyMs  July 13, 2015

      They will last longer if you refrigerate them, but it is not mandatory. Keep them in an airtight container.

        I don’t think keeping them in the fridge would make MINE last any longer. HAHAHAHA
