Healthy Cookies

DSCN2398
Anna reminded me of a “healthy cookie” recipe from 101 cookbooks I’ve been meaning to try.  The cookie is basically coconut, almond meal, chocolate chips, all held together with mashed bananas.  Fantastic.  I eyed the $10 almond meal at Whole Foods because I doubted the stamina of my blender (no food processor on the road).  But as I was buying the chocolate chips and coconut in exact measurements from the bulk section (no leftovers to lug around!), I went with raw almonds.  Luckily, they pulsed easily into dusty almond meal in the blender.  I also had pumpkin pie spice on hand instead of simple cinnamon, which worked nicely.   And I will definitely try chopped bits of 70% dark chocolate next time.
