Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies (Version 2.0)

I had previously made a banana chocolate chip cookie.  While it was tasty, it lacked the crispy chewiness that I crave in a cookie.  I decided that I needed a Version 2.0 of the banana chocolate chip cookie.  I decided to make these a few days before we embark on our next Whole30, a few last paleo treats and cheats before we clean up our diet.  And after a month touring Europe (pretty much all of June), we could really use a nice clean Whole30.  Until then though, these cookies are divine!  Perfectly crisp and chewy, airy with a nice banana flavor.

Paleo Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies 2.0

1/2 cup ghee
2/3 cup (scant) coconut/maple sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 ripe bananas
1 cup tapioca flour
1 3/4 cup almond flour
2 tbsp coconut flour
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
3/4-1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.  With electric mixer cream ghee and sugar together until light and fluffy.  Add egg and mix well.  Add vanilla and bananas and mix until bananas are well mashed and combined.  Add the flours, salt and baking soda.  Mix until just combined then gently fold in the chocolate chips.  Scoop tablespoons onto parchment lined cookie sheets and bake for 10-13 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool for 2 minutes on the cookie sheets.  Then remove from cookie sheets and place on cooling rack.  Serve and enjoy!
