Vegan & Gluten Free Banana Peanut Butter Oat Cookies with Walnuts & Chocolate Chips

So my Dad is here visiting for a couple of weeks, it is pretty exciting, considering he lives all the way out in California!  He has been a vegan since he moved there a few years ago, and every time he comes back home for a visit, I have this awesome challenge of making delicious, healthy food that is also vegan!  Last night I was craving something sweet, and figured I may as well make a treat that everyone in the house could enjoy!

Four Ingredient Cookies are an easy way to get something healthy and sweet in -- but I was craving that -- plus a little more!  So I decided to use that as the base of this cookie, and to obviously add in some more deliciousness!

What You Need:

  • 2 ripe Bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup Quick Oats
  • Heaping Tablespoon Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • Tablespoon (or more) Ground Flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup Walnuts, smashed
  • 1/2 cup Mini Chocolate Chips, dark

What You Need To Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray cookie sheet with Non-Stick Baking Spray, set aside.
  2. Mash bananas, then fold in Oats, Peanut Butter, Vanilla and Ground Flaxseed.  Once fully incorporated, stir in walnuts & chocolate chips.
  3. Transfer heaping tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet, about 13, and make sure the top is pushed down with your fingers or a spoon so the center gets fully cooked!
  4. Bake in preheated oven for about 12 minutes, until golden brown and gooey!
  5. Enjoy - and share this recipe!
