Yay cookies! Who can say no to a lower fat chocolate cookie? Made with whole wheat flour, applesauce, a little banana, and a bit if coconut flour, these cookies are moist and delicious.

The applesauce replaces some of the oil, and the banana adds a sweetness so you don’t have to add as much sugar. I included coconut flour because it adds something special, a buttery taste you can’t deny.

Ingredients include:
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup flax meal
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup raw sugar
1/2 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup applesauce
1/2 cup almond milk
1/8 cup olive oil (or any oil)
1 banana chopped

Roll into balls and flatten them out a little. You really don’t have to do that, you can make them as ugly as you want. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Prepare yourself for delicious chocolate heaven, and enjoy!
