I feel like during quarantine every one was either making sourdough or banana bread. Either way, we love carbs :)
Personally, I buy bananas to have on hand before my workouts but then I keep forgetting them every single time!! So I make a lot of baked goods with mashed bananas. I obviously love banana bread but there is only so much I can eat. So I mix it up, sometimes I will make pancakes and sometimes I make cookies. I like the cookies, because I add in a scoop of protein powder and they turn into a delicious post workout snack.
They are also great if you have a long day of meetings and don't want to crunch on your next zoom call.
1 1/2 cup of almond flour
1 scoop of hemp protein powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cardamom
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 large egg
4 ripe bananas, mashed with a fork
pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 350 F
Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl
Add the mashed bananas and mix well
Add in the maple syrup and egg and mix until everything is fully incorporated
Using a spoon, scoop out roughly 1 1/2 tbsp per cookie onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet
Flatten using a fork if you want texture
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the middle is set
Let cool and enjoy!
