Banana chocolate chip cookies- Vegan and gluten free

Vegan banana chocolate chip cookies anyone? These cookies are the bomb. Healthy, easy, only 4 ingredients and 55 calories per cookie.

Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

I can’t get enough of these banana chocolate chip cookies. I ate 6 the first time they came out of the oven. Thank goodness these cookies are not so bad for you.

I know I was suppose to post other recipes before this one but I promise I will after this banana chocolate chip cookie. I just felt I had to post these cookies since they are that good.

Not only these banana chocolate chip cookies are vegan but they are also gluten free. When making these cookies you must use ripe bananas. They should be able to be mashed easily with a fork. These cookies won’t look like much at first but once you bake them they will dry out and look like a real cookie.

My cookies didn’t last a day because we ate them all within the first our. I wouldn’t anticipate these cookies lasting too long in your kitchen counter though. I think they will spoil after two days. Perhaps keeping them in the fridge maybe better.

I hope you like these cookies. They are truly the bomb.

  9. I just made these and they are fantastic!! Such a great recipe. :)

  10. Look at that super short & sweet ingredient list…and all those chocolate chips! NEEEEEEED!!!

  11. Hola acabo de hacer las galletitas estan riquisimas me encantan…no puedo parar de comerlas hahaha :)

  12. Awesome recipe! Any advice on not eating the whole batch in one sitting would be appreciated;)

  13. Just made these (was inspired by the short ingredients list!) thought I did omit the coconut. Very quick and simple to mix it all together!

    They the smelled a little strange out of the oven (the banana, maybe?)…was very eager to try them – but decided to wait until they were cooled down.

    The result: Hmmm….well, the consistency makes them a little (ok, a lot) challenging to pickup, so I used a fork! They taste quite good – the banana isn’t too over powering and the oats were perfectly cooked.

    Even with the fork, super duper messy. So, I’m hoping a short stay in the fridge might “harden” them up a bit for easier consumption =)

    • I am thinking maybe they needed to be a bit longer in the oven to dry the banana out. My cookies, even though they were not crunchy but chewy, were able to be picked up. Maybe the fridge trick will work :-) Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Loved them! I just added 3 teaspoons of maple syrup because they weren’t sweet enough for me.

  15. Have you ever tried adding peanut butter to this recipe?

  16. Tried the cookies and they tasted great. So simple and very few ingredients and the banana taste is wonderful. Replaced coconut with sunflower seeds and added slivered almonds. Thank you for a very healthy and easy recipe.

  17. Made theses yesterday but substitued the choco chips for mini date pieces that I chopped, turned out extremely delicious ! Thanks for the great recipe

  18. I can’t thank you enough for this recipe! When I transitioned to no eggs & dairy I was sad thinking I couldn’t have cookies anymore, and I just didn’t have the patience to want to make a big recipe/have a lot of ingredients on hand to make special cookies. These are PERFECT! They taste amazing with hardly anything in them, and everyone I’ve passed this recipe onto has loved them! ;)

  19. This recipe is fantastic! I ran out of vanilla, but I had caramel extract and I threw the tiniest amount of that in there with a pinch of salt, and they came out incredible, like some kind of banana foster macaroon(yes, I used coconut) I made them tonight, this will be my ‘go to’ for cookies from now on, I am always looking for a way to cut back on bad ingredients in desert-y things with out cutting out great taste. So good! Thank you for this recipe, Miryam.
    Have a great evening!

  20. i can’t even tell you how many times I have made these since finding this recipe 2 weeks ago. It’s incredible and pretty embarrassing, but they’re amazing!! I’ve been playing with the recipe each time I make them. Sometimes I stick to your original recipe, other times I’ve added blueberries or butterscotch, cranberries or cinnamon. All the happy yums!! Thank you so much for this recipe, it’s the healthy(er) gluten free version of chocolate chip cookies I’ve been looking for!

  21. Ahh, had no idea these would turn out so tasty:) thank you so much x

  22. Love how simple and also healthy this recipe is! But I wanna ask: Do you think it will it be ok if instead of rolled oats I use muesli? I think it is, because muesli does contains rolled oats, soo..  :)

    • Maybe but muesli has sugar in it and I don’t know how the muesli will absorb the banana as the oats do that pretty good. You can try on the microwave but I am not sure either if they would turn out!

  23. And also do you think these can be made in the microwave somehow?

  24. A success!  Looking forward to seeing what the tribe thinks when they get home from school.
