SERIOUSLY. Who doesn’t like a chocolate chip cookie!? FOR reals.
This one is easy. It’s very low fat, and OIL FREE! yippee! It’s also tasty, chewy, and moist. All the best things a cookie should be.
Stop what you’re doing and make them now.
Vegan Chocolate Chip cookies
2 very ripe bananas, mashed into liquid
3/4 cup of applesauce (*I used a serving of trader joe’s applesauce with cinnamon, it was just too convenient!)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups whole wheat flour (or flour of your choice, could make this GF)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4-1 cup chocolate chips (vegan, carob chips, dark chocolate)
Preheat oven to 375. Mix all wet ingredients well, until as smooth as possible. Blend it if you can! I chose for a chunkier mix because I didn’t want to turn on the blending while my little boo is asleep.
When wet ingredients are mixed well, fold into dry ingredients. Use a rubber spatula, and works those arms! This batter will be thick. Add in chocolate chips, and scoop onto greased tray. I have a silicon baking mat, which is AMAZING and perfect for oil-free baking. Easy to use and easy to clean! I made mine BIG. Because I like a big ass cookie….. what?!
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes. I turned off the oven at 10 minutes and left them in there for another 4. They came out perfect. Chewy, soft, sweet, chocolatey. All the things a cookie should be! You don’t need oil and eggs to make a good cookie. I’m going to give one to my little boo for breakfast, because you know what? They’re that healthy. Ok… I’ll give her some yogurt and maybe a smoothie too. But that just goes to show how not bad these are for you. 🙂
Serve warm with your favorite no-cow milk. xxoo
Enjoy your weekend! I’m going on a road trip, so I might not post a recipe until I get back, unless I have an epiphany. Perhaps I’ll find an awesome vegan spot in my hometown and tell you about it. Til’ then…. toodles!
Eat clean, and green. ❤
