What exactly is green banana flour?

An excellent source of essential minerals such as magnesium and zinc, green banana flour is also high in both soluble and insoluble fiber, including resistant starch. It has a fairly neutral flavor and with its incredibly soft and smooth texture, it is perfect for making cookies, muffins, and pancakes. The flour can also be consumed raw, making it a tasty addition to smoothies for added fiber.

Ingredients for Green Banana Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  • Green banana flour
  • Cassava flour
  • Baking soda
  • Unflavored gelatin
  • Maple syrup & coconut sugar
  • Coconut oil
  • Full-fat coconut milk
  • Sea salt
  • Dairy-free chocolate chips or carob chips (AIP elimination phase)


RECOMMENDATIONS

  • If you are following the initial elimination phase of the AIP diet, you can use carob chips instead of vegan chocolate chips.
  • Before baking, gently press the balls of cookie dough down a bit since the cookies don’t spread very much. 
  • I love sprinkling a little bit of Maldon salt flakes on the cookies before baking, but this step is optional.
  • Store the cookies in an air-tight container for up to 3 days on the counter or in the fridge up to 5 days. These cookies also freeze well just defrost or warm up a bit in a microwave.

Ingredients
Directions
  • Step 1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Step 2 In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients and set aside.
  • Step 3 In a separate medium-sized mixing bowl, mix the maple syrup, coconut sugar, and vanilla together. Let sit for a couple of minutes to dissolve. Once dissolved, add the coconut oil to the wet mixture and mix well.
  • Step 4 Gradually add in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Once combined, gradually stir in the coconut milk until fully combined.
  • Step 5 Fold in the chocolate or carob chips.
  • Step 6 Form the cookies into a ball (roughly 1 inch) and gently flatten onto the baking sheet. Sprinkle lightly with Maldon salt flakes if desired.
  • Step 7 Bake for roughly 11 minutes and let cool before serving. The cookies will be very soft at first but they will become firmer as they cool and the gelatin sets. Wait roughly 15 minutes to transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.

  • THE BEST AIP COOKIES!!! I made these just before lent and then decided to give up baked goods since I can’t give up meat on AIP. I haven’t stopped thinking about them since! Easter is next week and this is what I’m looking forward to!

    I try to stay away from coconut milk, so used avocado oil in its place and they were great!

    I’m taking a long trip and plan to premeasure dry ingredients in ziplocks for a convenient cookie mix.

    • Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! I am thrilled that you love the cookie recipe. I love the idea of pre-mixing the dry ingredients for travel!

  • These are delicious and just the right amount of sweet (even with 100% chocolate chips)! I used Califia farms refrigerated coconut milk since that was all I had, and they turned out fine.
