Here are the main ingredients to make these mango cookies:
Almond flour: Use fine and blanched almond flour to make the cookie batter.
Baking soda: Acts as a leavening agent to help the cookies rise.
Salt: A little salt enhances the flavor and balances out the sweetness.
Coconut Oil: Its flavor perfectly melts into these tropical mango cookies.
Honey: A small amount adds sweetness and moisture to the cookies.
Egg: One large egg is all you need to bind the ingredients together.
Mango: I usually use ripe champagne mangos to add fresh fruit flavors. One large or two smaller fresh mangoes are all you need.
Dried mango slices: Use unsweetened dried fruit. It will add a more intense tropical flavor and a beautiful texture.
Lemon juice: You want just a tad to add acids and activate the baking soda.
How to Make Mango Cookies
See the full recipe with measurements in the recipe card.
Follow these simple steps to make your own batch of tasty mango cookies.
Step One (Picture 1 above) - Place all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Step Two (Picture 2 above) - Whisk to combine. Set aside.
Step Three (Picture 3 above) - In a high-speed blender, add the mango, dried mango slices, lemon juice, and honey.
Step Four (Picture 4 above) - Blend on a medium-high speed until pureed.
Step Five (Picture 5 above) - Combine the mango puree with the flour mixture, an egg, and coconut oil until you get a soft dough (I use a wooden spoon to mix).
Step Six (Picture 6 above) - Use a cookie scoop to portion out the cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Flatten the top a little bit with your finger.
Step Seven (Picture 7 above) - Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated oven until firm at the top and golden brown. Let the cookies cool completely.
- Combine dry ingredients with a whisk: You want to fluff up the flour and equally divide the salt and baking soda.
- Fold in the mango puree: Keep stirring the wet with the dry ingredients until thoroughly combined. Make sure there are no pockets of almond flour left.
- Use juicy and ripe mangoes: This mango cookie recipe requires juicy and ripe mango pieces for the best mango flavor to come through and to get a great texture.
- Use a cookie scoop: I use a cookie scoop (3 tablespoons) to form the cookies and get about 12 to 13 pieces. If you don't have a cookie scoop, drop three tablespoons of cookie dough on top of each other onto the baking sheet and round it off with your finger into a round cookie shape.
These Mango Cookies certainly can be enjoyed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
They are a sweet treat but don't contain refined sugar and are also gluten and dairy-free.
Once completely cooled, store in an airtight container for up to 2 days at room temperature.
Refrigerate for longer storage (one week).
