Fagan Eats Paleo Recipe: Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies with Banana Flour

Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies with Banana Flour
Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies Made with Banana Flour!  Yum!  
I always like to share my inspiration for a recipe.   This banana flour cookie recipe came about because I don't tolerate almond flour well.  I've made Against All Grain's Real Deal Chocolate Chip Cookies many times.  And they are delicious, but it's always apparent to me that nut flour does not work for me.  Plus, I could never get the cookies to come out to a smooth texture using the nut flour.  And so, I decided to create a recipe of my own.  




Wedo Banana Flour is a gluten free, grain free, Paleo-friendly, flour made from unripe, green bananas. The flavor is described as bran-like.  Eaten raw and uncooked, it's a great source of resistant starch.  The company, Wedo, is a "socially motivated company that is dedicated to feeding the hungry." For every purchase of Wedo banana flour, the company will "provide a meal for one hungry child in need via the World Food Program USA."  This means you can feel good about using it too!

This chocolate chip cookie recipe is fast and easy to make. The cookies are not overly sweetened and have a delicious, earthy taste. I think they even taste better the next day.  Yum.  Hope you all enjoy!
