This is a very old recipe that I created a long time ago. It was a recipe that just gotten forgotten over the years of being so busy with other things at the bake shop. And then I had a whole pantry full of rotten bananas las week, and I was thinking of what to bake with them and I remembered this amazing cookie recipe. So today I am sharing my Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.
This easy vegan cookie recipe is made using bananas and coconut oil along with classic cookie ingredients like sugar, flour, and chocolate chips. So, if you want you could probably call this a healthy banana chocolate chip cookie recipe! I love this Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe as even if you are not vegan, you will totally love it! The soft and chewy texture is exactly what you want in a cookie and you’re not missing any butter or eggs in this one, I promise!
Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why ou should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here.
