Serves: 12-15
  • ⅓ c dates, chopped
  • 1 green plantain*
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp alcohol-free vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 medium apple, peeled and grated (about ½ c)
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and grated (about ½ c)
  • ½ c unsweetened medium shredded coconut
  • ¼ c coconut flour
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Process plantain until the consistency of a paste (or at lest very finely chopped). Then add chopped dates. Pulse a few times until plantain and dates are well combined, but dates are not pureed. Add oil, vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and coconut flour. Pulse to combine.
  3. Add the shredded apple, carrot, and coconut. Pulse a few times more, but, again, be careful not to over process.
  4. Drop batter by heaping tablespoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheet. The shape will not change during baking.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely in order to firm up.
  6. Store in the refrigerator. These can also be frozen.
  7. *I've also tried using mashed banana instead of plantain, which renders a more delicate and sweeter cookie. And although I prefer the texture and taste of this recipe with plantain, both methods are quite nice.
