Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Breakfast Cookies (V, GF): a one bowl recipe for chewy, protein-rich banana cookies, plus a great excuse to eat COOKIES for breakfast! Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy-Free.
First there were bars… and now there are: COOKIES!!!
If you were here last week, you may have noticed a sweet little recipe I shared: Gluten Free Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Breakfast Bars. They were so delicious, so satisfying, and best of all, totally good morning-making.
I sorta wanted to name them Good Morning Breakfast Bars (which I have to do at some point, now that I think of it), but I… didn’t. Maybe because that title is somewhat vague and doesn’t highlight the key ingredients in the recipe, which, at this point, I compulsively do. I mean, who doesn’t want to know exactly what’s in a recipe before they get really emotionally invested, right?
Back on point, it had been ages since I’d released my Good Morning Breakfast Cookies. Those cookies, let me tell you, folks love them! Like, LOVE them. Have you tried them yet? They’re one of my faves because you can truly never go wrong when you’re having cookies for breakfast.
Yes, I said it: Cookies. For. Breakfast.
Can you honestly imagine a day not starting off right when you’re having cookies for breakfast?
Since dessert for breakfast is always a good idea, I figured, let’s do this once more! I remixed the banana breakfast bars recipe and created this! Are you excited? Come on, you’re totally excited!
They’re perfectly soft, chewy, lightly sweet, bursting with all the delicious add-ins, and just, oh-so-satisfying. Basically, they’re Good Morning Breakfast Cookies II. Better yet, they have even less sugar, less oil, and are basically guilt-free. Plus, of course, they’re wonderfully vegan and gluten free. Better better yet, you can make them in just one bowl.

SHOP THIS RECIPE
Here are a few items I used in today’s recipe. 🙂
- 2 medium bananas, ripened
- ½ cup natural, unsalted creamy peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
- 2 flax eggs (2 tablespoons ground flax + 6 tablespoons water, whisked together, set for 15 minutes)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup raisins
- ½ cup walnuts, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons raisins
- 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
- Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, add peeled bananas. Using a sturdy whisk or fork, mash until smooth. Add the remaining wet ingredients: peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, flax eggs and vanilla. Whisk until well incorporated.
- Add the dry ingredients: oats, baking powder and baking soda. Using a rubber spatula, stir and fold until well mixed. Fold in raisins and walnuts.
- Using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop and drop cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spaced evenly apart. Optionally, press raisins and walnuts into the tops of each cookie. Using a fork, flatten each cookie to desired thickness. They won’t spread much during baking.
- Bake for 10-14 minutes. Mine took 12 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes. Using a heatproof spatula, carefully lift cookies onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool completely. Enjoy! Storing instructions below.
- For those who've asked, here’s the cookie scoop that I used in today’s recipe.
- Store in an airtight container at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to one week. Best within 4-5 days.
