I’m pretty sure we’ve all purchased bananas before and then never got around to using them, I can’t be the only one! These vegan banana cookies are the perfect recipe if you’re looking to use any leftover bananas and enjoy them instead of throwing them in the bin and wasting the food you’ve paid for. I’ve made these vegan cookies a few times now and I can’t get enough of them.
Banana cookies taste so good, bananas by themselves can be a little bland and if you eat them too much you’re bound to go off of them, which is why these cookies bring them back to life, make them super yummy and are well worth making.
Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
I love chocolate chips in my cookies but if you’re making vegan chocolate chip cookies you’ll need to make sure that the chocolate chips are vegan and most of the time this means using dark chocolate chips which can be a little overpowering so make sure you don’t add too many or they might not taste as good. The chocolate chips give this banana cookie recipe a whole new level and I honestly don’t think they’d be that good if the chocolate chips weren’t in there.

Don’t worry, I won’t say you need a dishwasher to make these banana chocolate chip cookies but it does come in handy.

This banana chocolate chip cookies recipe will make 14 cookies depending on what size you make them. I don’t make them too big because then I can enjoy them more and not feel as guilty. Make sure you pat down the cookies before you put them in the oven as they don’t get much bigger and if you don’t you’ll end up with something that looks more like rock cakes, they’ll still taste great but won’t look the same. When I last made these vegan banana cookies, I had that issue but I still managed to eat a few that’s for sure!
