My Easy Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are a healthy snack option that can be whipped up in no time. These cookies are crispy around the edges with that classic chewy center. Vegan and gluten free!
Do you have ripening bananas but no time for baking banana bread?
Try these little babies out and you won’t be disappointed.
What I love is they are flourless, contain no eggs, and best of all, no refined sugars.
Even though they are on the healthier side, these cookies are still super good. I’ve made two batches in the last two weeks and needless to say, they were promptly devoured. I did bring a few into work for my buddies and they loved them too.
EASY BANANA CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
You are only four simple ingredients away and these can be baking in your oven in no time:
- Oats (gluten free if needed)
- Bananas (ripe!)
- Chocolate Chips
If you want 3 ingredient banana oatmeal cookies you can totally skip the walnuts!
And can we talk easy?
This vegan banana chocolate chip cookie recipe could not be easier.
Simply mash up your bananas until they are no longer lumpy. Then stir in the oats.
Sounds pret-ty darn easy so far, yes?
I also like a little crunch so walnuts were tossed into my batter along with a handful of chocolate chips.
It’s like cookies aren’t worth making with out chocolate chips.
Am I right?! 🙂
I’m also pretty impressed that these are made without any added sugar. The natural, sweet goodness of the ripe bananas and a few dark chocolate chips are all you need to satisfy that little sweet tooth.
Anyways, back to easy. Scoop out little cookies onto the parchment lined sheet and pop them into the oven.
That’s it! Cookies. Check.
I dare you to say that going to the store and plunking down your hard earned money for the refined sugar laden, chemically based, non-food cookies is easier than throwing these beauties together. They are just so simple and you can feel good about eating them.
All of them.
Not that we did that or anything. 😉
Have a great weekend, all!
