Flour-less Banana Cookies

And… I’m done!

Another semester complete!

I’m so excited to finally get the chance to sit down and read. My reading list has accumulated to over 20 books, so I’ll be nice and busy for a while 🙂

Of course, I’ll also be cooking and hopefully posting more frequently. To celebrate the beginning of my break, I thought I’d post a a super yummy and quick cookie recipe!

Now, I don’t know if I ever mentioned it, but I’m majoring in math and education. Eventually, I’m going for special education. As an end of the year treat, my teaching program went to New York City this week!

I only went there once before, so I was super excited to go. Unfortunately, we got into NYC at 3, so we only had a few hours to roam around. Because of this, we mostly stuck to the Times Square area.

I didn’t really mind – I was completely content with just looking around at the lights and colors. At night though, I went to my first Broadway play, Cinderella. Normally, musicals put me to sleep, so I was surprised that I loved the play so much!

Next on my list: The Lion King!

Flour-less Banana Cookies 


1 ripe banana

1 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes (optional)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking oil. In a bowl, mash up a banana (I use a potato masher) and add and mix in coconut flakes, vanilla, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in oats and raisins/chocolate chips. Bake for 13 minutes.
