Vegan Banana Coconut Oatmeal Cookie

The name is a long one, but these cookies are delicious! My husband would not stop eating them! Often times I try to find desserts that are as naturally sweetened as I can make them, and what better way than to use bananas?

This recipe is easy and quick to make and definitely a good idea for those who are trying to eat healthy! For more tips on healthy baking check out our Ultimate Vegan Baking Guide!

What you’ll need is,

1 cup Pastry Flour (make sure it is vegan friendly)
2 cups of oats (instant is better)
1 tsp cinnamon (or more if you love the taste!:)
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp Sea salt
2 Super, super ripe bananas (the more brown dots the better!)
1 Tbsp of Agave Nectar or Maple Syrup
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/8 Almond extract
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup of walnuts (optional)

Forgot to include raisins, but I do add them. P.S. try craisins, if you don’t like raisins

Step #6: Mix till incorporated and place on cookie sheet.

mixed oats on spoon

Remember don’t over-mix!

Using your pointer and index finger flatten the cookie, so that it bakes fully. I baked mine for 10 minutes, but if you want them crispier, continue to bake for 2 minutes or until your liking.

Enjoy that guilt free cookie (or 3?)!
