How to Make Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the coconut oil, cane sugar, dark brown sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix on low until combined and there are no chunks of coconut oil. 

Add the banana, flour, baking soda, and sea salt in that order and mix to combine completely. Add the chocolate chips and mix on low until combined. 

Step 3

Using your hands, form the dough into 12 balls and place them on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten them slightly so they are about 2-inches in diameter. 

Step 4

Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown on the bottoms. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheets. (If you are baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions).

FAQ's

Why use black bananas for baking?

It's best to use black, or overly ripe, bananas for baking. This is because as the bananas ripe, the starches turn to sugars. This makes the banana sweeter, have a more pronounced banana flavor (less starchy), and it also allows it to meld into butter and sugar much better!

What if I don't have coconut oil?

This easy vegan cookie recipe is incredibly flexible. You are welcome to use vegan butter or vegetable shortening in place of coconut oil. If you are not vegan, you can even use regular butter!

Can I add nuts?

Yes, feel free to add in peanuts or walnuts, both would be delicious in this recipe! I would recommend adding in about 3 ounces of chopped nuts.

How should I store these?

These Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies are soft and chewy. So, they are best stored in an airtight container to keep their amazing texture!

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 you 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. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Additionally, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! I linked all the exact ingredients I used when making this recipe in the Ingredients section. You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip — hover over each ingredient to see the name.
