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!

Just saw this on Instagram and was drooling- Looks SO good and love the combination of chocolate and banana- Healthy snacking!
these look perfect, and so easy! I bring lunch to the hospital every Thursday, maybe I can make these before tomorrow!
I’m always amazed how just a few ingredients can come together as such perfection. LOVE this combo and I think I would simply call it breakfast. :)
I’ll take my double chocolate however I can get it!! These look awesome.
These look fantastic!!
Was wondering if these are chewy or crunchy after baking ? I understand thickness and oven times can make a difference, but we like ’em chewy ’round here .
These are kind of soft and not crunchy at all. I hope this helps!
