Ingredients:

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ยฝ cup coconut flour
  • 2 scoops Monkey Nutrition X-Blend Velvet Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ยผ cup unsweetened desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs (I used Kaizen Living)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp Sweet Freedom (or honey, agave syrup or coconut nectar)

Get baking!

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C and lightly grease a baking tray.
  2. Put the oats, coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder, desiccated coconut and cacao nibs in a large bowl and stir well.
  3. Whisk the egg, mash the banana, and melt the coconut oil and Sweet Freedom together in a small pan.
  4. Add all of this to the flour mixture along with the vanilla extract and mix to combine – you should have a moist consistency.
  5. Place spoonfuls on the tray (you should have about 9 in total), shape into circles and press down gently with a fork to flatten. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden and brown.
  6. Leave to cool for a few minutes then transfer to a wire rack – and eat while still warm or keep in an air-tight container for up to two days (if they last that long!).
