Coconut Plantain Snickeroons (gluten, grain, dairy, nut, seed free, autoimmune paleo) // deliciousobsessions.com

{Today I would like to give a warm welcome Tyler, author of The Primitive Homemaker. She creates some delicious autoimmune friendly recipes on her site and today, she shares her recipe for these yummy AIP-friendly cookies! ~Jessica}

Since I started my real food journey years ago, macaroons have always been my favorite treat. For a traditional macaroon, you only need honey, eggs whites, and coconut. Pretty simple! They're probably the most fool-proof and easy to prepare treats out there- and not to mention one of the best tasting.

I came up with this recipe because eggs no longer agree with me, and eggs whites are essential for making traditional macaroons. So, I experimented with several ingredients until I found a “glue” to hold the coconut together: plantains.

This recipe is friendly for those who are following the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol, and any other gluten, grain, and sugar free-diet. The combination of cinnamon and plantain in this recipe is slightly reminiscent of peanut butter, making this cookies rich, creamy, and nutty.

Never peeled a plantain before? This video will help!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine peeled plantain, coconut oil, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Puree completely.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine puree plantain mixture and shredded coconut. Use a fork to mash the ingredients together.
  4. Once combined, scoop out 3-4 tablespoons of the mixture and form a round macaroon. I used a an ice-cream scoop for this step.
  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until macaroons begin to brown around edges. Keep an eye on these, as they may brown faster in your oven than in ours!
  6. Enjoy!
