Double chocolate banana chunk cookies – Gluten free and vegan

So yesterday, after craving something sweet, I made these double chocolate banana chunk cookies, which are gluten free and vegan. So good…

The recipe actually comes from these other banana chocolate chip cookies I made a while back. These only have 4 ingredients, have no oil, no added sugar, no eggs, no flour and are vegan, and gluten free.

On top of that they are only 60 calories each, what else could you ask for?

For this double chocolate banana chunk cookie version I just added 2 tbsp of cocoa powder extra and use chocolate chunk pieces instead of the chocolate chips. I forgot how good these cookies were. Perfect when craving something sweet and healthy at the same time.

While I used the unsweetened shredded coconut, you don’t have to add it if you don’t like. I just love coconut so much so I thought to keep it in the recipe.

I have been wanting to bake for a while but since these cookies are easy and super fast to put together I went for it. I really want to get more creative and bake something more elaborate. Hopefully soon.

By the way, the Eat Good 4 Life app is coming mighty nice, it is a lot of work because I have to put every single recipe also in Spanish, which is a lot of work. So far I don’t know how many recipes I will add but I will try my best to add as many as possible.

I am so excited about it. Generating a shopping list for the recipes you choose to make from the app will be a lot easier once you decide to do your grocery shopping. It will be easier for me to since there are a lot of recipes I do make from my blog quite often!

Anyways, I leave you with these amazing easy and yummy cookies that I hope you get to make soon. Don’t eat them all at once!

Enjoy!

  1. Is a serving size about a cup? Did you keep it in the big bowl or separate into individual servings?

    • Yes it is about a cup, I have actually just corrected the nutrition facts bc the initial calculations were done w/ almond cream, weird…. I always keep it in the big bowl since it is easier :-)

  2. I’ve never tried overnight oats before,and I cant believe that. That won’t be for long though, this sounds so good and healthy too!

  3. I know I’m missing out – I’ve never, ever made overnight oats. A lot of the combos I’ve seen haven’t really interested me…but tropical? Yes! I looove mango. I hope school is going well, honey!!

  4. Se ve riquisima la hare para mi y para mis niños ahora que estan de vacaciones gracias:-D

  5. I need to make overnight oats more often! This variety sounds great!

  6. I love overnight oats! This tropical flavour sounds and looks fantastic.

  7. Such a great idea! I’m always on the go and hate skipping breakfast.

  8. I saw this and wanted to make it immediately! So I tried this last night! But i made it with what I had at hime: low fat milk, peach yogurt, and fresh mango and pineapple. It looked great, but tasted bery bitter. I’m wondering if it’s because I used real milk and not almond or coconut milk- is it supposed to taste bitter? I look forward tl making it again following your recipe step by step! :)

  9. HI…I just subscribed to your Instagram and I must say after checking out your website it makes me want to eat even healthier. However, I just wanted to point out that there is a word spelled wrong in the sentence below from this post: think creamy which should be thick creamy. I’m sorry…but can’t help it…English major LOL.

    use any other type of yogurt. I like Greek yogurt because it gives the oats a think creamy

  10. Hi Miryam I just subscribed to your Instagram and I’ve done three super yummy recipes. Two of the quinoa plates, banana bread, and now wanting to try this recipe. Can I use stieel cut oats instead of the rolled ones?

    • Thanks :-) You could use those but the consistency would be a bit grainy and a bit harder, since steel cut oats don’t become as soft as regular rolled oats do. I would suggest using rolled oats but you can try a smaller portion w/ the steel cut oats and see how you like it. Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Hi Miryam: I can’t believe that you manage to prepare 3-4 meals, breakfast and a dessert in 1 hour and a half. How do you do that? What is your secret?!! I would love to be able to get so much done in so little time.
    On another note, I am addicted to your tropical oats!
    Thank you for all the recipes.
    Andrea

    • I am a machine :-) Just kidding. I tend to do easy ones that don’t require much chopping and such and perhaps just one of them being an oven type of meal like my quinoa recipes. I do the overnight oats for breakfast, which just takes 5 minutes to mix the ingredients together, and for dessert frozen popsicles which take another 10 minutes if that! Thanks for stopping by.

  12. I was asking myself the same question! All those meals, breakfast and a desert in 90 minutes!!! Do tell us your secret!! I also really enjoy your tropical oats. I sometimes make them with steel cut oats. Thanks for our great recipes!

    • I keep my meal simple and for that time that I cook no one is allowed in the kitchen. Everything is everywhere in my kitchen counters and messy :-) Thanks for stopping by.

  13. Might seem like a daft question…but should i cook the oats first before mixing everything in?

  14. I made this last night and woke up to it this morning!  SO GOOD!  Thank you for this recipe.  It’s yummy!
