Banana Dark Chocolate Pepitas cookies

I know what you are thinking bananas again, cookies again, doesn't this girl eat anything else? Well yes I do, but just because I cut out most animal products from my diet, doesn't mean I can't have sweets. You caught that hunh, the most thing. Here is the thing. I have started eating seafood again, but only once a week, unless you count last week. When did this start you ask, about 2-3 weeks ago. We had a company luncheon and the boss lady bought shrimp. I caved and ate 5. I guess I should back up and explain, the plan was to evaluate after 6 months of eating totally vegan to see if I wanted to add in seafood. Beacause a lot of research says it is really good for you. It also makes eating out a little easier. Heaven forbid I actually get a date. Ok enough babbling, here is the recipe.

Ok so I talked to my sister today [aka: the blog nazi] and she said to me, "Amie you need to blog TODAY!" So I am at the Library cause I am lame and got tired of paying a ton of money for internet, so I cancelled it. In my purse are some cookies, so I am going to blog them to appease her, or at least hopefully appease her :) Ps they are wrapped up becuase I plan to take them to a sister I visit teach that I have not visited yet this month. I know it is the end of the month, she cancelled our appointment yesterday. Right cookies here is what you need:

2 ripe bananas
2 tbs coconut oil, I used organic unrefined (smells amazing)
2 cups of flour. (I did one cup whole wheat and the other cup unbleached flour)
1tsp vanilla - ok I didn't measure it I just poured some in
1/3 bag of dark chocolate chunks
1 cup pepitas
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup cane sugar (recipe called for 1 cup of each, but I always cut it down some)
3/4 cup brown sugar

Place banana and coconut oil in mixer and mix the banana and the coconut oil together for a few minutes on low. Add in the rest of the ingredients minus the chocolate chips and pepitas. Stir those in. Drop tablespoon fulls onto a parchment lined jelly roll pan and bake for 8-10 minutes. enjoy.
