Oh how I love cookies! I mean who doesn’t love cookies, right? But I like them even more when they’re easy to make and healthy at the same time. And these vegan chocolate banana cookies fulfill both of these criteria. The recipe seriously couldn’t be easier!
What You Need for The Chocolate Banana Cookies

How to Make Chocolate Banana Cookies
The recipe for these vegan chocolate banana cookies couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is combine all ingredients in a bowl. Then line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use a spoon to form the cookies. Bake for 12 minutes and let them cool down for a bit before eating them. Pretty easy, right?
I usually make a big batch of these chocolate banana cookies once a week. The recipe makes about 12 cookies depending on how big you make them. Most of the time, I double the recipe and just store the leftover cookies in an airtight container. They last a couple of days but usually they’re gone super fast. Oatmeal cookies are definitely my favorite!
Allergic to peanut butter?
If you don’t like peanut butter or if you’re allergic to peanuts you can also use any other kind of nut butter. The recipe works great with almond butter and I’ve also made it with cashew butter once.
I hope you like these super easy chocolate banana cookies as much as we do!
Have a great week, everyone!

Chocolate Banana Cookies (Vegan, 4 Ingredients)
- 2 ripe bananas, mashed
- 1 cup quick oats
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter you can also use any other nut butter such as almond or cashew butter
- In a bowl, combine all ingredients with a spoon.
- Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and use a spoon to form 12 cookies (each portion should be about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the banana oat mixture).

Just combine the four ingredients and bake. Much easier than the banana muffins I used to make. Held together perfectly with a very noticeable banana taste. Since I buy discount bananas from the grocery store as often as possible,I think this will be my go-to recipe from now on. So glad I found it.
wowzer, first time I made cookies that turned out good. your recipe is so simple and delicious. Next time I will add a little vanilla to complement the lovely flavor of the oats. these cookies really made my day and I’m so glad to have come across this recipe, thank you, thank you. my life is forever changed now that I can bake tasty cookies
These are delicious! I doubled the recipe, added 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1 1/2 tsp agave & 1/3 c chopped peanuts, plus a pinch of salt. Just because I bake lots and have a tendency to modify recipes! Absolutely wonderful cookies that I will make over and over!
I am totally addicted to these cookies!Sometimes I switch it up and leave out the p.nut butter and cocoa and add raisins and cinnamon instead.
Thanks for sharing.
Literally have been making these every week. So healthy and easy!
These cookies are so easy to make, but too yummy! Thank you for sharing.
Dein Rezept klingt herrlich und ich möchte es unbedingt heute nachbacken. Leider bin ich mir bei den amerikanischen Mengenangaben unsicher. Meinst du mit einem Cup = 120 gr? Und kann ich anstelle der “quick Oats” zarte Haferflocken nehmen? Vielleicht gibt es das Rezept ja auch auf Deutsch und ich habe es nur nicht entdeckt. Lieben Dank!
Hallo liebe Shoshana,
ja, das ist leider immer ein bisschen kompliziert mit den Mengenangaben. Auf meinem deutschen Blog veröffentliche ich alles mit Gramm-Angaben und hier mit cups, da 90 % meiner Leser aus den USA und Kanada kommen. Leider unterstützt mein Recipe Plugin nicht beide Angaben. Ich habe gerade nochmal nachgewogen. :-) 1 cup quick oats sind ungefähr 100 g. Und ja, mit zarten Haferflocken klappt das super!
Dir viel Spaß beim Ausprobieren und liebe Grüße!
