Banana Choc Chip Cookies

Banana Choc Chip Cookies

Armed with a couple of overripe bananas and a few other pantry ingredients, I whipped up these easy vegan 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 – 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!
