  • 1 medium overripe banana, mashed
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 6 tbsp coconut flour (*amount varies from 4 to 8 tablespoons; 6 is most common; see instructions and notes)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the mashed banana, peanut butter, vanilla, and maple syrup. Add in 4 tablespoons of the coconut flour. If needed, add in additional coconut flour, tablespoon by tablespoon, until the dough is thick and malleable enough that it can be rolled into balls. (Do not add extra coconut flour beyond that; just add enough so that it’s able to be shaped).
  • Form into 12 balls and place on the baking sheet. Use a fork to press the balls into a cookie shape. (Cookies will be a bit sticky, so press down gently and slide the fork across to remove).
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown and dry on the outside. Let cool for 10-15 minutes on the pan, then enjoy.


  • *The specific amount of coconut flour can vary based on how big and how ripe your banana is. A starchier and/or smaller banana will require less than a larger and/or sweeter banana. I recommend starting with 4 tablespoons of coconut flour and working your way up, tablespoon by tablespoon. After making this recipe many times, 6 tablespoons is usually what I end up with based on the bananas I choose, but it can be more or less.
  • This recipe calls for natural peanut butter, which is drippier than regular peanut butter. If you use regular peanut butter, you’ll likely need to cut the coconut flour a bit.
