‘Chocolate’ Plantain Chip Cookies 





Recipe and photograph by Nicole of Heal Me Delicious︎︎︎︎



[ IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Crushed plantain chips are spread over a coat of dark carob sauce. Together, they fill up half the circumference of round and crispy wafer-like carob cookies. The bare part of each cookie is a slightly lighter shade of carob than the part that has been dipped in carob sauce and plantain chips, Stray flecks of bright yellow plantain chips appear throughout the frame. The cookies rest on top of a bright marble countertop. ︎︎ heart symbol ]

[ IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Artist Elizabeth Axtman looks directly into the camera for a selfie-style portrait that partially depicts one of her paintings in the background. She is a Black light-skinned woman wearing bright red lipstick and two necklaces with delicate chains. One of the chains holds a gold heart charm and the other a gold charm that spells the surname “Axtman.” She wears a black scoop-neck sweater that exposes one shoulder and covers the other. Above her in the frame is the bottom third of one of the artist’s paintings—a self portrait. In partial view is a painted vagina dentata and a single painted fingernail on a pink background. ︎︎ heart symbol ]
