Chunky Monkey Cookies

I stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest while looking for a cookie recipe that was fast and easy, and of  
course Paleo. Although, this cookie has the appearance of a cookie, it has the texture of a cupcake; soft, and fluffy, and uber moist. These cookies  are so yummy and guiltless, I even had one for breakfast!


1 cup chunky almond butter (or other nut butter)
1/4 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 cup (ripe) banana, mashed (about 1 large banana)
2 Tbl.  Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter (or other chocolate nut butter) or 2 Tbl. cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbl. cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
salt to taste
1/2 cup chopped pecans, (or other nut) {optional}
1/2 cup Enjoy Life Mega Chocolate Chunks (or dark chocolate chunks, the darker, the better!)

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Combine all ingredients (adding pecans and chocolate chunks last) in a large bowl until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Using a large spoon, scoop batter onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet (making sure you leave plenty of room in between each).
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool on pan for 5 minutes, then completely cool on wire rack.
Makes about 15 cookies.
* If you opted to use cocoa powder which I use vs. hazelnut butter, your cookies will be  dark in color and have more chocolate flavor.
