Still playing the waiting game while I wait for baby #4 to decide when to be born…so what better way to pass the time than with some baking?! Armed with a couple of overripe bananas and a few other pantry ingredients, I whipped up these easy vegan banana choc chip cookies.
Banana choc chip cookies
I used oat flour for these cookies, as it’s my go-to flour…it’s cheap and easy to make your own in a high speed blender / food processor, and can be easily subbed for gluten-free oat flour if needed.
The only ingredient that I used for these cookies that I don’t usually have in my pantry is vegan chocolate chips (here in Australia, I use the Sweet William chocolate chips) – I usually only buy them when I plan to make something specifically with chocolate chips, otherwise I find they disappear…
All the other ingredients are things I usually have plenty of, and I hope you do too so that you can enjoy these cookies the next time you have ripe bananas!
Vegan choc chip cookies
- 2 cups oats / 1.5 cups oat flour
- ½ tsp bicarb soda
- 2 large overripe bananas / 1 cup banana purée
- 4 tbs smooth peanut butter (or another nut butter)
- 2 tbs vegan choc chips
- Preheat oven to 180C/350F.
- Blend the oats in a high speed blender (I use my Froothie Optimum 9400) to make a flour, or use the amount listed for premade oat flour.
- Mix the oat flour with the bicarb.
- Purée the bananas.
- Add bananas and nut butter to oat flour and mix well.
- Stir through choc chips.
- Place tablespoon sized cookies into a baking sheet (if dough is sticky, leave to rest for 15 minutes).
- Bake for 15-18 minutes at 180C/350F.
- Let cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
