Serves: 12 cookies.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 6 Tbs. (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup dry cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tbs. flax seeds
  • 2 tbs. sunflower seeds



Preheat an oven to 325°F. Lightly grease 1 or 2 baking sheets or line each with a Silpat nonstick liner.


In a bowl, stir together the flour, coconut, oats, baking soda, flax seeds, salt, and cinnamon. In a large bowl, cream the brown sugar and butter with a wooden spoon until fluffy. Add the banana and egg and beat with a fork until blended. Stir in the flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time, then stir in the raisins,  sunflower seeds,  dry cranberries, and walnuts.


Spoon the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet(s), spacing the cookies about 2 inches apart. Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes, switching pan positions halfway through baking if 2 pans were used.


Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool on the baking sheet(s) on a wire rack for about 5 minutes. Transfer the cookies to the rack and let cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

    These looked so good, so I thought I'd make them with a few tweaks. No all-purpose flour, but 1/2 oat flour, 1/2 whole wheat, and 1/2 rolled oats, minus 2 TB for wheat gluten (they gotta stick together). I don't like sunflower seeds, so I used chia seeds. I omitted the raisins, and I split the walnuts 1/4 with 1/4 almond meal (from making almond milk – it keeps for ages in the freezer).

    They're still cooling, but I had to try one. Oh my god, it's like eating a rich, crazy flavorful banana bread… cookie. They're AMAZING. Thank you for this recipe.
