Recipe – How To Make Plantain Cookies

Our recipe this week is the yummy and delicious Plantain cookies. This is yet another way to enjoy our all-time favourite; plantain. As the kids are back in school, this is an easy to bake wonder that they can have as snacks or as a light breakfast with a cup of milk. We usually say no to cookies for our kids, but these are healthy and homemade.

If you have a sweet tooth, you can definitely splurge a little with the sugar or use honey or blended dates to sweeten it up a bit more. If you have some dried fruits, this would be the perfect cookie to add it to. Hope you enjoy it.
