These Chocolate Chip Plantain Cookies are easy to make and have the perfect cookie texture - a crispy outer layer and soft interior.  They are paleo, vegan, gluten free, dairy free and egg free.


  • 1 flax egg*
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond butter
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup green plantain flour (46g)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-2 oz dark chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, make the flax egg.  Let the mixture rest 5 minutes to thicken.
  3. Place all remaining ingredients (except chocolate) into the mixing bowl and mix until well combined.
  4. Chop dark chocolate (or use chocolate chips) and fold into the dough.
  5. Use a small cookie scoop to scoop the cookie dough and roll it into a ball.  Place it on the baking sheet and slightly flatten.  (Each cookie should be about 1 rounded tablespoon of cookie dough.)
  6. Place the cookies your oven (middle rack) and bake at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven, cool on pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack.


*1 flax egg = 1 Tbsp ground flax + 3 Tbsp water
