  5. Add in plantain and applesauce puree (or banana puree) to dry ingredients.
  6. Add in coconut oil. Stir.
  7. End with adding in coconut buttermilk. Stir until combined. (to make coconut milk buttermilk, take 1 cup of coconut milk with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar, let sit 10 minutes)
  8. Sprinkle 2-3 tablespoons arrowroot starch down on surface.

  19. Remove from oven.
  20. Let cool slightly before topping with more raw cookie dough to be the glaze on top.
  21. Enjoy warm.


Can use any gluten-free flour blend of your liking.
If you can’t do plantains replace them another cup of gluten-free flour or almond meal. Note you might have to adjust more or less buttermilk.
We did 1/4 cup coconut sugar in the batter and they came out, but we reduced to 2 tablespoons and still had success.
Also made it with 5 1/4oz plantain and they still came out.
*** Our GF blend contains coconut flour. So if yours does not you may need to adjust buttermilk in recipe as coconut flour absorbs liquid!!!
