Healthy Samoas Recipe

I got tired of waiting for Girl Scout cookie season sooooo I made my own (but made it healthy and with only 3 ingredients!) Since it’s made out of bananas, it’s not quite as crunchy as the real deal, but it’s still real yummy 😋

Also, Thin Mints are overrated 🤷🏻‍♀️ Samoas are where it’s at.


  • 2 bananas

  • 1.5 cups coconut flakes

  • ~8 cubes from Trader Joe's Pound Plus dark chocolate


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF

  2. Peel two bananas and put them in a bowl. Mash to get rid of all the chunks. Add in 1.5 cups of coconut flakes and mix together.

  3. Take a spoonful of the mixture at a time, and flatten on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Use your finger (or the end of a spoon if you don't like getting your hands dirty) to make a hole in the center of the cookie.

  4. Bake at 350ºF for 20-30 minutes (until golden)

  5. Meanwhile, melt around 8 cubes of TJ's pound plus dark chocolate using steam from boiling water. Take a small pot of water and put on the stovetop on high heat until boiling. Place an oven-safe bowl with the 8 cubes of chocolate inside as a lid to the pot. Stir until the chocolate melts from the heat.

  6. When the cookies are done and the chocolate is melted, use a spoon to drizzle chocolate over the cookies.

  7. Let it sit until the chocolate dries up (or if you're impatient like me, freeze it for 10 minutes).

  8. Enjoy!
