These were so good. The aroma of them baking lured everyone to the kitchen.   💛 INGREDIENTS ⅓ cup melted coconut oil  ½ cup maple syrup 2 eggs, preferably at room temperature 1 cup packed mashed ripe bananas (about 3 bananas) ¼ cup milk of choice or water (almond milk worked great) 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling on top 1 ¾ cups whole wheat flour ⅓ cup old-fashioned oats plus more for sprinkling on top 1 teaspoon turbinado (raw) sugar or other granulated sugar, for sprinkling on top.

Dogs have such unwavering loyalty, endless love and have the rare ability to not only forgive but forget. Yes, I’d like to be a lot more like my pet. Her name was to be COCO after famed designer COCO Channel, the stylish French fashion designer and business woman who lived a bold and unapologetic life, leaving us timeless fashion and some wicked smart quotes. But style and grace can't be appointed and although my sweet dog was a diva doxie, she's called almost anything but COCO, especially by my boys. AKA Coco la Crazy, Cocomotion, Cokes, Cocopuff, Cocoalu and as of late Stinky Dog. Poor thing was smelly in her old age. Thank you James, for loving and caring for her even though she was past her
