Expert Tips

For a lower calorie or sugar-free version, use stevia.

You can process just one of the plantains and add the other one at the end for more texture.

For gluten-free cookies, use almond or coconut flour.

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 375º F.
  • 2 Line a baking tray with parchment paper, aluminum paper or lightly grease with coconut oil.
  • 3 Place plantains in a food processor and lightly process until you have a puree. Add raisins or nuts, if desired.
  • 4 Add rest of the ingredients to the food processor, except chocolate. Process until everything is well combined.
  • 5 Add everything to a bowl and add chocolate. Use a spatula to combine everything.
  • 6 With a spoon, shape the dough into small balls and place them on the previously prepared baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool before serving.
  • 7 Serve and enjoy!

Who doesn’t love plantains? Baked or fried, they can make the perfect mid afternoon snack. They’re also great as a side dish or garnish in baking and dessert recipes. They can also be great in classic uses like tostones, chips or mofongo. This time I would like to show you a very original way to use them if you want to get the younger members of the family to eat more vegetables and fruits: chocolate cookies! Although it sounds a little crazy, they make the perfect pairing with chocolate and I assure you that one cookie won’t be enough.
