Double chocolate chip banana protein cookies (vegan & gluten-free!)

Cookies don’t have to be unhealthy.

These double chocolate cookies use bananas to keep them moist and give them a hint of sweetness (the riper the banana, the better!). And the secret ingredient of pea protein powder adds a little boost of protein to help keep you full.

Eat them warm with your favorite milk or milk substitute for a treat any time of the day!

Here’s your double chocolate banana cookie recipe:

Ingredients

1 large ripe banana
1 scoop vegan pea protein powder (or vegan mix)
1 cup quick cooking oats
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 Tbsp chocolate chips
1-2 Tbsp honey or maple syrup (optional)
1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat your oven to 325° F. Add the banana, protein powder, cocoa powder, and oats to a medium sized bowl and mash it all together. Slowly add the almond milk and stir until there are no remaining chunks.

Add the almond milk, vanilla extract, and optional sweetener, and stir well. Next, fold in the chocolate chips and mix it all together.

Form into 15 cookies on a cookie sheet (I used a Silpat so it wouldn’t stick, otherwise you’ll need to spray the pan beforehand). Bake for about 20 minutes or until slightly browned on top.

Eat up! Best stored in the fridge.
