The easiest 6 ingredient banana coconut cookies! Gluten free, vegan, and lower in sugar!


  • 2 ripe and spotty bananas, mashed
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut 
  • 1/4 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter (sub any nut or seed butter)
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar*
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Good pinch of sea salt
  • 1/2 cup dairy free chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients besides the chocolate chips until well-combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Batter will be sticky- that’s ok!
  3. Spoon out batter about 1.5 tbsp at a time on you parchment-lined baking sheet. 
  4. Bake for 15-17 minutes. Allow to cool before serving. Store leftovers on the counter in an airtight container for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.  


*If you want, you can skip the coconut sugar to keep these free of added sugars (besides the chocolate chip). The result will be a very subtly sweet cookie, just fyi!
