This recipe isn’t 100% paleo because of the peanut butter, but you can definitely substitute another nut butter to make it paleo: like almond, or macadamia.
This recipe also uses Simply Stacked baking mix. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s an all-purpose gluten-free, paleo, low carb, and low-glycemic baking mix. It’s unsweetened so you can use it to make sweet or savory items.

They have a bunch of recipes on their site. I think it’s best for pancakes 🙂
Anyway, here’s the recipe for the cookies!
2/3 cup of Simply Stacked Grain Free Mix
2 tablespoons coconut oil or ghee, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1 ripe banana
1/4 nut butter (I used peanut butter)
About 1/4 c jam or jelly (I used Trader Joe’s, it’s sweetened with grape juice)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Also, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
In a large mixing bowl, smash your banana with the vanilla, melted fat, coconut sugar, nut butter, and eggs.
Mix in the Simply Stacked mix.
Use a tablespoon to drop little balls of dough. They don’t spread, but don’t smush them down. We’ll do that later.
Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 min.
As soon as you pull them out, use the back of a small spoon, or your thumb, to create a little crater in the cookie for your jam.
After you’ve created all the nooks, use a 1/2 teaspoon to scoop your jam into the crater.
