Here's the recipe for delicious banana and cocoa cookies that are sure to be a hit!

Ingredients:

  • 140 g banana
  • 20 g cocoa powder
  • 100 g coconut oil
  • 2 g ground coffee
  • 250 g wheat flour
  • 6 g baking powder
  • 80 g sugar
  • Salt to taste

Instructions:

Start by peeling and slicing the banana. Place the banana slices into a blender. Add the sugar and blend until you achieve a smooth, puree-like consistency.

In a small saucepan, heat the coconut oil until it melts. Pour the melted coconut oil into the banana puree in the blender. Blend the mixture again to ensure the oil is thoroughly incorporated into the banana puree.

Transfer the blended banana and coconut oil mixture into a deep mixing bowl. Now, it’s time to add the dry ingredients. Begin by adding the wheat flour, followed by the ground coffee, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Lastly, sift the cocoa powder through a fine sieve into the bowl to avoid any lumps. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly until you have a smooth, elastic dough.

Once your dough is ready, take small portions and roll them into balls about the size of a walnut. Place the balls on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. To give the cookies a distinctive look, use a wet knife to make a strip or indentation in the center of each ball. This will help the cookies bake evenly and give them a nice texture.

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit). Once the oven is hot, place the baking tray inside and bake the cookies for 15 to 18 minutes. Keep an eye on them towards the end of the baking time to ensure they don’t overbake. The cookies should be firm to the touch but not too hard.

Once baked, remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the tray for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Tips and Variations:

If you prefer your cookies to be less sweet, you can reduce the amount of sugar slightly or use a natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup. This can give the cookies a different but equally delightful flavor.

For a more intense chocolate flavor, increase the amount of cocoa powder to 30 g, but you might need to adjust the sugar to balance the bitterness. Experimenting with the cocoa content can help you find the perfect balance to suit your taste.

If you’re a fan of nuts, consider adding some finely chopped walnuts or almonds to the dough for added crunch and flavor. Nuts not only add texture but also complement the chocolate and banana flavors beautifully.

For a different flavor profile, you can substitute the ground coffee with a similar amount of cinnamon or nutmeg. Both spices pair wonderfully with banana and cocoa and can give the cookies a warm, aromatic touch.

Make sure to store any leftover cookies in an airtight container to keep them fresh and delicious for several days. Proper storage ensures that the cookies remain as enjoyable as when they were first baked.

These banana and cocoa cookies are perfect for a quick snack or as a delightful addition to your dessert table. The combination of banana and coconut oil gives them a moist, tender texture, while the cocoa and coffee add a rich, deep flavor. Whether you’re baking for your family, friends, or just for yourself, these cookies are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Enjoy baking and, most importantly, enjoy eating these scrumptious treats! These cookies not only offer a delightful taste experience but also fill your kitchen with a wonderful aroma as they bake, making the entire process enjoyable from start to finish.
