Chocolate chip cookies…they’re a go-to comfort snack to match that cool refreshing glass of almond milk or your favourite hot drink during the day or evening. It’s a social snack, most people’s eyes light up when ‘cookie’ is mentioned as an offering. It’s a fact. As you may have guessed (from the way we do things on the blog here) it’s not any old cookie, it’s made with…plantain?!
Err, why? Well you searched for grain-free vegan paleo cookie recipe. And you got plantain chocolate chip cookies as your answer.
