Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

It's tough to admit but Riley and I eat quite a bit of refined sugar in our diets. Not a lot but sometimes we can heavily indulge  in that standard sweet treat. Anyway, we found a COOKIE recipe that contains NO sugar. AND it's delicious. How can you go wrong? 

Peanut Butter & Banana Chocolate Chunk Cookies
3 large, very ripe bananas
1/2 cup all-natural (just peanuts) peanut butter, or almond butter
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups old-fashioned(we only had 1C of oats so we subbed in 1C WW Spelt Flour)
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 – 1 cup chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl mash the bananas with the peanut butter, oil and vanilla. In another bowl stir together the oats, coconut, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients along with the chocolate and stir until combined.
Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a parchment or Silpat lined baking sheet, or one that is sprayed with nonstick spray, and bake for 12-14 minutes, until just set.
Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
