Gluten-Free, Vegan, Chunky Monkey Cookies

Chunky Monkey

Those who know me know that as far as food prep goes, I’m pretty lazy. I mean, I get the job done, but I like few ingredients, no mess, and no weird soaking-overnight stuff.

Oh, and anything I make has to be completely ready (start to serve) within about 30-45 minutes max. Which brings me to the recipe I want to share with you. These cookies are fast, delicious, wholesome, and most importantly, easy. They’re also gluten-free, vegan, and did I mention delicious?

Try ‘em out! Happy Tuesday.

Gluten-Free, Vegan, Chunky Monkey Cookies


3 ripe bananas, mashed

2 cups rolled oats

½ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut

½ cup carob chips or cacao nibs

3 tbsp. chia seeds


Mix all ingredients together. Drop by spoonfuls onto greased (use coconut oil) cookie sheet and flatten slightly with your palm. Bake at 375 for about 12-14 minutes, then let set for 2 minutes on cookie sheet before removing to cooling rack.
