Gluten free and vegan peanut butter banana monster cookies. An easy one bowl batter! 


  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2 cups gluten free old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt*
  • 1/2 cup chocolate candies


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a large bowl, mash the banana with the maple syrup and vanilla until little lumps remain. 
  3. With a rubber spatula, stir in the peanut butter then fold in the remaining ingredients, besides the chocolate candies, until everything is well-combined. Fold in the chocolate candies.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out 12 cookies, then use your hands to gently shape and slightly press down each cookie. The dough will be slightly sticky. 
  5. Bake for 11-13 minutes, then allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before enjoying. Store leftovers in an airtight container on the counter for up to 4 days. 


*If your peanut butter in not salted, I recommend adding a bit more salt to the batter.
