Servings: 32-35 cookies
Preparation Time: 15 minutes

  • 1 medium ripe plantain
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream concentrate
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (use powder if you are AIP)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 2 heaping teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (use mace if you are AIP)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • ground cinnamon to sprinkle on top

Preheat oven to 325º F.

Prepare 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Peel the plantain and process in food processor until smooth. Add all the other ingredients except the shredded coconut and process until smooth. Taste the batter to make sure it is sweet enough for you. Add the shredded coconut and just pulse until combined. Transfer the batter to a bowl.

Using a teaspoon drop the batter onto the prepared cookie sheet leaving room to expand. Use all the cookie batter this way.

Place plastic wrap over the cookie sheets and with a spatula flatten the cookies (this helps it not stick).

Bake for about 18 – 20 minutes or until the edges brown. Remove and let cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes then transfer to a rack to finish cooling.

Servings: 24
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Dry:

  • 3/4 cup honey graham crackers, crushed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ginger spice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon spice
  • 3/8 teaspoon pink salt

Moist:

Topping:

Crush graham crackers by hand or by placing them in a plastic bag and using a wooden spoon to beat them into a crumble. You can use a food processor but the consistency/texture will be more fine so you will only need 1/2 cup that way.

Mix the crushed graham crackers with the remaining dry ingredients and combine well.

Scoop out and reserve 1 tablespoon of the dry mixture to use as the final topping and set aside remaining dry mixture.

Mix together all moist ingredients, blending/stirring until smooth and all coconut cream has been well incorporated.

Add the remaining dry mixture to the moist mixture and stir until well incorporated. Pour into an 8×6 dish and smooth with a rubber spatula until evenly distributed. Set aside.

For the topping, place the chocolate and coconut cream concentrate in a double boiler on medium low heat and stir continuously until smooth. Then remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract until fully incorporated.

Pour the melted chocolate over the pumpkin mixture in the pan and smooth until evenly distributed over the top. Next, evenly sprinkle the reserved graham cracker over top, cover and place in the refrigerator for 1 – 1 1/2 hours or until the chocolate topping is firm.
