It's girl scout season! My favorite cookies have always been thin mints but I couldn't pass up an opportunity to recreate samoas or caramel delites. Chances are you might already have these ingredients in your pantry and on your kitchen counter! You'll need:
- A very ripe banana (or two, depending on the size)
- Shredded coconut
- Vegan chocolate chips
- Coconut oil
Simply mash your bananas in a mixing bowl then stir in the shredded coconut. Form small disc shaped cookies and transfer to a prepared baking sheet.
Using a chopstick, the back of a spoon, or your finger; create small holes in the centers of each samoa cookie. Bake for 20-25 minutes then let cool.
Meanwhile, melt the dairy-free chocolate and stir in coconut oil. Once the cookies are chilled, drizzle the chocolate over, then place in the fridge to set.
