What the heck are chunky monkey banana cookies?
Aside from being the obvious tasty paleo cookies that they are, they are also:
→ Made from a base of bananas and almond flour. My rationalization for naming these Chunky Monkey Cookies: Monkeys like bananas. There are bananas in these cookies. That's a good enough reason, right?
→ Full of coconut, chopped walnuts, and raisins. (Yep, that's the chunky part.)
→ Loaded with chocolate chips. Yes!
What do paleo banana cookies taste like?
Paleo cookies are not your average cookie. There is no butter, flour, or sugar in sight. All paleo cookies (at least the ones that I've tried) tend to be more dense and chewy.
If you're going to compare paleo cookies to regular cookies, then these paleo banana cookies are similar to a healthy breakfast cookie, with a slightly different texture.
The almond flour makes them a little chewier than a regular cookie … which is not a bad thing.
They are the perfect morning cookie!

Chunky Money Paleo Banana Cookies are chewy and flavorful healthy cookies that are completely grain-free. They taste like dessert but are full of good for you ingredients making them perfect for busy weekday mornings.
- 2 medium ripe bananas, sliced (+ slices for topping, optional)
- 1/2 cup almond butter (can sub peanut butter if not paleo)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup coconut
- 1/4 cup raisins
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Add the banana slices, almond butter, water, and vanilla to a large bowl and beat with electric beaters until mostly smooth. Add the almond flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt and beat until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips, walnuts, coconut, and raisins.
Drop the dough (it will be sticky) into 12 equal mounds on the baking sheets. Press a banana slice into the top of each cookie to flatten it out a little.
Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden then remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool.
