My family

I gave birth to you but you came with no instructions. All I knew was that I loved you long before I saw you…
I know I made some mistakes and for that I am sorry, but I was doing the best I could do with what I knew, everything I did for you, I did from Love. You are my child, my life, my dreams for tomorrow. I will always LOVE you and there is nothing that could destroy  my love for you…

  For my second attempt at baking with WEDO Banana Flour I  decided to experiment with a cookie recipe. This time I was sure to follow the rule of using half the amount of flour normally used.  As I mixed up the cookie dough using the banana flour it began to resemble previous cookie doughs I had made using almond or coconut flour, which I took as a good sign.  I formed it into individual cookies, popped it in the oven and crossed my fingers.  By JP’s standards the cookies were a total success! By “JP standards” I mean he ate 5 cookies right out of the oven! Cookie Monster!

Chocolate Chip N’ Mac Nut Cookies

Yields 14-18 Cookies

Ingredients

1 1/4 C WEDO banana flour

2 TBSP coconut flour

2/3 C unsweetened shredded coconut

1 tsp baking soda, available from Bobs Red Mill

1 TBSP vanilla extract or 1/2 TBSP vanilla bean powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/2 C coconut oil (melted)

1/4 C coconut nectar

3 whisked eggs (include yolks), I’ve been getting ethically raised eggs from the farmers market lately but you can always pick up ones from Vital Farms

2/3 C  macadamia nuts

2/3 C chocolate chips

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lay silpat mats on baking sheets and set aside.

Mix dry ingredients together (banana flour, coconut flour, shredded coconut, baking soda, *vanilla bean powder, sea salt)

Mix wet ingredients together (coconut oil, honey, and eggs, *vanilla extract)

Pour wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and mix well.

Fold in macadamia nuts and chocolate chips to mixture.

Grab 2 tablespoons worth of mixture and turn mixture into a ball. Place on baking sheet and flatten the ball mixture with your hand (to create a cookie shape).

Once mixture is all gone and cookies are ready to be baked, place baking sheets in the oven for about 18-20 minutes [Check at around minute 16 to make sure bottom of cookies are not burning]

Let cool and enjoy! So yummy!

Awesome

Two Peas in a Pod! Cousins Paula and Roberta

Time with my extended family was quite sporadic in my younger years. Of course I knew all my cousins and spent a little bit of time with them here and there but I never got the chance to develop those tight family bonds I have seen in other…
