Vegan, Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies


Inspired by a recipe from @VerdeyRebelde, these vegan cookies are so easy to make and (almost) guilt-free. They contain no milk, no eggs, no added sugars (except for a little stevia), and are gluten-free! Best part of it all is that you are in and out of the kitchen in 40 minutes, tops. 

Ingredients (to make 10-12 cookies): 

  • 2 ripe bananas (some black spots are required!) 
  • 6 heaping tablespoons of rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup of coconut flakes 
  • 1.75 to 2 oz of dark chocolate (preferably 70% cocoa)
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or sesame butter (for those with allergies) 
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon 
  • 1 - 2 packets of stevia (depending on your sweet tooth!)
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda 
  • a pinch of salt 


First crush the bananas with a fork. Mix in cinnamon, stevia, and baking soda. Then add nut or seed butter and mix. Start adding dry ingredients one a time- oats, coconut flakes, and lastly, the chocolate pieces. Use a spoon to scoop and make small cookie balls with your hands. Use small amount of coconut oil on a cookie tray. Cook for 22 to 25 minutes at a temperature of 325F. Enjoy!
