I like to add chocolate chips and raisins. If using coconut oil I like to add coconut, craisins and chocolate chips. The sky is the limit.

  1. Are you going RAW?!? Or are you just trying to include more raw foods in your diet?

    Em I want to be doing so much better than I am! I'm slowly getting back into the groove though!

  2. No, I am not going all raw. I wish! That would be the day. I personally believe that an all raw diet is the ultimate healthy way of eating. It is all raw. No processing, nothing added or taken away. Maybe one day.

    I follow eat to live for the most part. Even though I really do enjoy eating plain nuts, I really like spicing things up a little. I would rather eat this extremely healthy cookie than eat a cookie leaded with crap. Blah..blah..blah! You know, the same old story.

  3. Emily, we had these banana cookies tonight. I made them the way you suggested with coconut oil, choc chips, craisins and shredded coconut. (PS- I can get unsweetened shredded coconut from the Amish for cheap!) I loved this! It was lightly sweet and just what I needed tonight. Thanks friend!
