Vegan Banana Nut Butter Cookies

After three  attempts on this recipe it finally came out good. I think the trick is to not get a too ripe banana otherwise it will be a flatter cookie. If you do use really ripe banana’s chill the dough just a little before baking. There is no flour in these, also no sugar, so really you can enjoy these cookies any time of the day quilt free!

Kind of makes you happy doesn’t it? Well how about the fact that it tastes just like a peanut butter chocolate cookie? Or perhaps it only takes 4 ingredients? It’s a win no matter what honestly it uses very little, bakes in under 15 minutes and there’s no reason to kick yourself for eating 7 of these , not that I ate 7.

I ate 8, anyways….

Can you blame me?

6 tablespoons  peanut butter
2 tablespoons  almond butter
1 small banana, mash it, mash it good
¼ tsp  ground cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mash banana in a bowl. You can make it smooth or leave tiny banana lumps of heaven in there. It’s up to you.  Add in butters, spice and blend till combined. If the mixture looks thin you can chill it a little. It won’t hurt anything if it is a little thin, it’ll just make a flatter cookie. If it’s more firm go ahead and take tablespoons of the mixture and place on a greased cookie sheet.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until edges or slightly golden, barely that even. They are meant to be very soft cookies so don’t over cook them, and don’t be shocked if you eat them all ten minutes after they came out of the oven.

  It makes about 12-15 cookies depends on how big you drop them to the baking sheet.

    I can not believe that there is only 4 ingredients. They look so good, finally a recipe that requires ripe bananas. I usually buy them to let them ripen up for freezing.

    Good thing you let us know the trick to the perfect cookie before we attempt to make it. These look like a great spring recipe to try.

    Those cookies truly look absolutely delicious. I will want to be trying these as soon as my kitchen is finished.

    Oh my those look great and I'm sure they taste just as good. My daughter is the baker in my house, she's vegetarian so she will really love this.
