Spicy Chocolate Cake Cookies

Chocolate, Banana, and a little bit of heat. These cookies have the consistency of a piece of cake, and were very easy to make! There is also very little sugar involved, so have a couple if the whim strikes.

Spicy Chocolate Cake Cookies

  • 2 Ripe Bananas, Mashed
  • 1 1/4 Cup Almond Meal
  • 2 Tbsp. Almond Butter
  • 3 1/2 tsp. Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla
  • 1 tsp. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 tsp. Powdered Stevia (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, mash bananas with a hand mixer. Add Almond Butter, Cocoa Powder, Vanilla, Baking Soda, Cinnamon, Cayenne Pepper, Salt, and Stevia (if using) – combine with hand mixer. Add Almond Flour to the bowl and mix until incorporated. Stir in the Chocolate Chips.

Line a baking sheet with Parchment Paper. If desired, scoop using a cookie scoop/ice cream scooper to make uniform cake balls. I just dropped mine by the spoonful, but they didn’t turn out quite as pretty. Bake for 15 minutes. Enjoy!

  1. This was a failure in my kitchen 😦 The texture is wonderful- a bit like a fudgy brownie- but the taste… the sweetness is very mild, which makes the cocoa powder quite bitter, and the spice kick is STRONG, which makes the subtle sweetness completely ineffective. I think I’ll experiment a bit more with the recipe because the texture really is quite good.

    1. Oh no! April, I’m so sorry! I don’t know what I did differently, but it wasn’t very strong for me at all…just a little heat at the end of eat bite. You’re right though, the texture is wonderful.
