  1. Mix all dry ingredients together. Flour, coriander, nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder in a bowl.
  2. Be sure you have mixed the coconut milk and the coconut milk solids to have a creamy thickness of coconut milk.
  3. Mix the sugar and mixed coconut milk.
  4. Add the 4 eggs and the 1/2 cup oil.
  5. Mix all wet ingredients than add the dry ingredients.
  6. Add the cup of pineapple and mix again to even out the amount of pineapple in the batter.
  7. Scoop onto a cookie sheet with sprayed with pan spray on parchment paper.
  8. Smash down as flat as you are able to get them, spray your hand with pan spray first, this batter is a bit sticky.
  9. Add some sliced banana to the top of the cookie before placing into the oven.
  10. Place into preheated convection oven at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Using a conventional oven time and degrees will vary so watch your cookies.

Dry ingredients

Into the oven


Completed and adding caramel to the top


What to expect

These cookies will puff up quite a bit and be almost cake like. Add a dollop of whip cream, drizzle some caramel across the top, add some nuts if you so choose, sherdded coconut would be delightful. They are delicious, puffy and wonderfully tropic.

A special note these cookies are best fresh and have a shelf life of around 3 days. Keep that in mind if you choose to adjust for a larger or smaller batch.


I added some craisians to some chocolate chips to others, a few almonds in a couple just to try it out. All worked all were good, so go for it!
