The Best Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies that use only 1 bowl, 7 simple ingredients, and take less than 30 minutes to make! This recipe is easy to make, everything into a bowl, mix, and bake!
We love baking with chocolate, try our Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cups or our Chocolate Caramel Cookie Bars. These Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies just add to the list of how great vegan desserts can be!
The flavor of banana, coconut flakes, almond flour, and chocolate chips are delicious. These are so good, and healthy that they can be breakfast cookies! These cookies are dairy-free, plant-based, and gluten-free.
With most cookie recipes, you combine the dry ingredients, the wet ingredients, and then combine, but this vegan banana chocolate chip recipe is easy because you can toss all the ingredients into one bowl all at once and they will turn out every time!
- Medium mixing bowl: We use a stand mixer, it is so easy since you have your bowl nd mixer in one! You can easily use a hand mixer and bowl as well!
- Cookie scoop: We didn't use a cookie scoop for years but it is such a fun tool to have in teh kitchen! Great for kids to help with as well!
- Baking Sheet: We used our favorite baking sheet bought off Amazon! It comes with a cooling rack and a baking mat so it is perfect for these banana chococlate chip cookies.
- Almond flour: Our go-to baking flour is almond flour. It bakes well, has a great consistency, and tastes amazing! Plus, you don't have to combine a pile of gluten-free flours .
- Grapeseed oil: Grapeseed oil gives a really nice flavor to these vegan cookies.
- Maple syrup: We prefer grade A darl maple syrup but Amber tastes nice as well.
- Banana: Make sure to use browning bananas. They are sweeter and taste so much better!
- Mixed seeds: We went with sesame and pumpkin seeds as an added nutritional boost.
- Chopped nuts: You can buy pre-chopped walnuts or you can buy chole walnuts and chop them yourself.
- Dark chocolate chips: Be sure to read ingredients and make sure you select vegan as many chocolate chips contain dairy. You can use chocolate chunks as well if you prefer. Enjoy Life is one brand that of vegan chocolate chips. They can be bought off Amazon, or at some local grocery stores.
- Vanilla extract: We use pure vanilla extract in this recipe for the best flavor.
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°.
Step 2: Add all ingredients into a stand mixer and mix on low-medium until well combined.
Step 3: Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Step 4: Form the cookies into patties. Bake for 12 minutes.
Step 5: Allow cookies to rest and cool before transferring them. Enjoy!
- Use an ice cream scoop to create an equal amount of dough per cookie and then flatten each cookie with a spatula.
- Double or triple the recipe because chances are they will get eaten quickly.
- If you have some leftover, store in the freezer for a quick and easy grab and go treat, or a healthly vegan snack.
- Add chopped dates, raisins, or currants.
- You can add in ⅛ cup of peanut butter or almond butter to give an added boost of protein.
- Throw in flax, chia, or hemp seeds for extra crunch and protein.
- Use coconut oil or olive oil instead of grapeseed oil.
- Use vegan butter instead of oil.
- You can chop any up your favorite nuts for this recipe and it will still taste amazing.
- Change out the chocolate chips for dried fruit if you prefer.
- Refrigerator: These healthy cookies do well in the fridge for 6-8 days but I doubt they will last that long!
- Room temperature: Store in a cute cookie jar on the counter for 4-5 days.
- Freezer: These vegan chocolate chip cookies freeze really well. Keep them in a freezer-safe container for 2-3 months. You can place parchment paper in between layers to avoid sticking.
- You can also wrap the cookie dough, freeze it, and bake up your cookies later if you run out of time or are planning ahead. Keep the wrapped dough in the freezer for up to 1 month.

Typically you want to watch for golden brown colour around the cookie and bottom. If you prefer a soft cookie, you can reduce the time slightly. Remember that every oven cooks differently so be sure to keep a close eye.
Yes, they can be! Add an extra ½ of banana, make sure it is really rip. It will alter the taste slightly but they are still delicious.
No, coconut flour is very absorbent and you would need much less of it which would change the consistency too much in this recipe. You could reduce the almond flour and add in a small amount of coconut flour, however, we recommend sticking with almond flour for this recipe.
