1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Line a large baking tray with baking paper.
2. Peel the bananas and break them into a mixing bowl. Mash them with a fork to make a smooth paste.
3. Add 125g desiccated coconut and the vanilla. Stir well to mix them together. Crack the egg in. Beat that into the mix. The mixture should be thick and pliable. If it seems a bit too wet, add little more coconut until you get a scoopable consistency. If it's too dry, add some extra beaten egg or a splash of milk.
4. Scoop a tablespoon of the mix out of the bowl. Roll into a walnut-sized ball with your hands. Pop on the baking tray. Repeat with the rest of the mix till you have around 16 balls on the tray.
5. Press each cookie flat with the back of a fork. Bake for 10-12 mins or till golden around the edges.
6. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in the microwave, checking every 10-15 secs or so to prevent it from burning. When the cookies are baked, take them out of the oven. Drizzle over the chocolate. Leave to cool. The cookies will keep for 3-4 days in an airtight container.

A quick and easy recipe. My mixture is always quite moist. I use a 1/3 cup as a mould and get 5 macaroons. Also lovely with some dark chocolate buttons mixed in - bounty style - delish!



Where am I going wrong? Mine are shockingly dry coconut blobby balls....





We adore these. So quick, simple and healthy.

Quick, simple and tasty way to use up ripe bananas. I used a few drops of vanilla essence instead of the pods. Delicious!



So quick & easy, I can make them in 5 mins & pop them in the oven whenever I'm cooking, feel like a healthy snack

Quick and Easy Peasy!


We love these! We used to use up the ripe bananas making muffins but now make these instead! No added sugar and fat is the reason we like these more!
