Now there is a reason that I called these “Feed the Monster Cookies”. I make them when the cookie monster in me comes out, and when I need to feed my little monsters when they simply.won’t.eat.anything! I figure these are about as healthy as cookies can get. Sometimes I even add in a scoop of chocolate protein powder to make them chocolatey monster cookies.
That’s the fun part about making these, each time I seem to add something new: dried fruit, protein powder, coconut butter, coconut chips, dehydrated nuts, and seeds, etc. Get creative with these little buggers!
Warning: this recipe makes about 48 cookies. Yep, I like to make a huge batch and freeze them! So, if you are not in the mood for that many cookies, I suggest dividing the recipe. Enjoy!

- Preheat oven to 350*F.
- In a high-powered blender, puree bananas, dates, raisins, coconut oil, and vanilla until smooth.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine all the rest of the ingredients.
- Pour blended mixture into dry ingredients and stir well with a spoon, making sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl to get everything well mixed.
- Using a cookie scoop, scoop the dough uniformly onto a Silpat lined baking sheet, about 12 cookies per sheet if you use one this size.
- Bake 10-12 minutes or until nice and brown but still chewy. These also freeze well.
