Banana Oat Chocolate Chip & Raisin Cookies (vegan)

28 Feb

I’m addicted to Pinterest. If you’re not addicted yet, stay away. Looking at food and recipes is like a drug. Like that delicious bubble gum medicine you used to get as a kid… Yum!

I digress.

Pinterest= Awesome recipes=My baking addiction on steriods

I found these cookies a few days ago and I just so happened to have a bunch of ripe bananas that had to be used stat. Don’t let the fact that they are vegan and gluten free scare you. They are a yummy, healthy cookie.

The boyfriend loved them- even after I told him that they didn’t have sugar 🙂


Whatcha need
Preheat oven to 350
(Adapted from this recipe)

3 large, ripe bananas
1 tspn vanilla
1/4 c vegetable oil
2 c gf oats
2/3 c sorghum flour
1/2 tspn cinnamon
1/4 tspn xanthan gum
1 tspn baking powder
3/4 c chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli)
1/4 c raisins
1/3 c coconut

With your handheld mixer, blend together your bananas, oil, and vanilla until relatively smooth- No big banana chunks, yo! In a separate bowl whisk together your dry ingredients (up through the baking powder) and mix them into your banana mixture until everything is combined. Stir in your chocolate chips, raisins and coconut.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Drop your batter by spoonfuls (I used a tablespoon) onto the prepared pan. I preferred it when I pressed the dough down a little (instead of leaving it as a mound). Leave about an inch of space between each. Bake them for 13 minutes. After a minute or two, move the cookies onto a cooling rack. I sprinkled mine with some raw sugar crystals just because. You don’t have to.

Enjoy, and if you eat four, five, or six… It’s okay, they’re healthy 😉
