Sugar-Free Banana Coconut Protein Cookies

Sorry, no picture. I ate them all before I could snap a shot. Just kidding… sorta. My camera lens is messed up and I need to get it fixed.


2 very ripe bananas

1/3 cup almond butter (or nut butter of choice)

2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup vanilla protein powder (I use Vitol 100% egg white protein powder- all natural ingredients, very minimal, doesn’t make my stomach hurt and tastes delicious!

1/2 cup coconut flour

1/2 tsp. baking powder

3 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tbs. coconut oil

1/2 cup chocolate chips/chopped dark chocolate (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mash bananas and combine with the nut butter. Add in the rest of the wet ingredients and beat well.

Mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl then add in to the wet, mixing everything together. If using chocolate, fold in now.

Place dollops on a greased cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Flatten with back of the spoon OR tap tray gently a few times on the counter.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.


If your bananas are ripe enough it makes the cookies plenty sweet! The vanilla protein powder doesn’t hurt either ;). If you use plain protein powder, you could add in a little stevia (maybe 1 tbs? taste test it!).

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)
