Plantain Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love soft cookies!  However, most cookies have a lot of sugar and other unhealthy ingredients.  These cookies use much more natural and healthy ingredients to get that soft cookie texture with a great taste!  However, be aware that these still do have a lot of sugar and fat, but that’s healthier sugar and fat thanks to the plantain and coconut oil.

Plantain Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe was adapted from the Purely Twins:

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe plantain (mine was yellow/brown)
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (semi-melted)
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips (or more)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F and grease a cookie sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  2. Peel and roughly slice the plantain and puree it in a food processor.
  3. Add all other ingredients and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender as needed.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Scoop out the dough into round balls and place on the cookie sheet.
  6. Lightly press down on each dough ball to form circular cookies.
  7. Bake in oven for 12 minutes.

I was amazed at how much these looked like real chocolate chip cookies without eggs, milk, butter, unhealthy sugar, and unhealthy oil.  Plus, I absolutely loved the plantain taste.  I can’t wait to make this delicious treat again!

I was able to make 12 cookies.  Each cookies is approximately 65 calories.
