- 1/2 of a cup of unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 of a cup of sliced almonds
- 1/4 of a cup of unsweetened dried berries
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a food processor, combine the bananas, applesauce, coconut oil, raisins, vanilla extract, and vinegar. Pulse until smooth.
- In a medium bowl, combine the coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and protein powder. Add these ingredients to the food processor and pulse until combined. Add the coconut flakes, almonds, and dried berries. Pulse them briefly until just incorporated.
