Growing up, no-bake cookies were my all time favorite. I loved helping my mom make them. I loved ‘checking’ to see if they were set or not and getting to scoop up gooey no-bakes before they harden. And obviously I loved enjoying them once they were set. I remember in boarding school that my mom would always send me to school with a box full of them and I had every intention of saving them to enjoy for weeks to come, but instead my roommates and I would almost always pig out on them on arrival day. Good thing they were easy enough to make that more could easily be made in our dorm room.
So, as Christmas gets nearer and I start craving comfort food treats, I thought it was time to take a childhood favorite and create a recipe for AIP Paleo No Bake Cookies. I knew that coconut would be one of the primary ingredients, but couldn’t think of what the salty crunch (to replace the peanut butter) would be. And then it hit me… plantain chips. Ok, full disclosure, I was eating the chips and wondered what they would taste like dipped in chocolate and that’s when it hit me…. crunch up the chips and make cookies. A few minutes later I knew that I had a winner on my hands.
