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.
This recipe was adapted from the Purely Twins:
- 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)
- Preheat oven to 375F and grease a cookie sheet or line it with parchment paper.
- Peel and roughly slice the plantain and puree it in a food processor.
- Add all other ingredients and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender as needed.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Scoop out the dough into round balls and place on the cookie sheet.
- Lightly press down on each dough ball to form circular cookies.
- 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.
