Spiced Plantain Cookies (vegan, grain-free, nut-free, autoimmune)

Ali Segersten Mar 22, 2018

Elimination diet cookies made from plantains! You'll love these chewy spice cookies if you are following our Elimination Diet or another special diet such as an autoimmune diet, gluten-free diet, paleo diet, or vegan diet! They are also a perfect treat to introduce to older babies and toddlers. Once your baby is okay chewing soft foods then try making these cookies.

Use this recipe during Phase 2 of our Elimination Diet program.

While on an elimination diet, you'll find that many of the foods you are accustomed to eating everyday are off limits. You'll get to experience new flavors and new foods. For the most part, the Elimination Diet keeps out sweets and treats. But we also know how wonderful it is to have something comforting to eat, like these cookies made from super nutritious plantains! This recipe has been slightly adapted from a recipe I created for the FREE Elimination Diet Cookbook that you can download when you purchase the Elimination Diet Book.

If you are curious about trying an elimination diet and not sure where to begin then check out our Elimination Diet book and an online Elimination Diet Support Program, both of which provide excellent tools that walk you through each step of an elimination diet.

If I wanted to sub olive oil for the shortening, would it be the same quantity?

Hi Kristen,
I have not tested this recipe with olive oil, but I would probably start with slightly less, maybe 5 tablespoons.

WOW!!! These are delicious! Thank you for the recipe!

Thanks Pam! So glad you enjoyed these! :)
