A delicious and easy banana cookie recipe

What if I told you there’s a way to make a scrumptious chocolate chip cookie from scratch that is full of nutrients and so healthy that you can eat it for breakfast?

Well, you just found your new favorite cookie! There’s so much to love about this cookie. You will only need one bowl (less clean-up), it is gluten-free, and is already made 100% vegan. That makes this cookie perfect for the celiac in your life, the vegan in your life, and even the lactose intolerant friend that sneaks dairy sometimes, but really shouldn’t.

Are you crazy about chocolate chip cookies? I know I am. I have made so many versions of chocolate chips cookies before, but I may just say that this GIANT cookie is my favorite cookie I’ve ever made. Bold saying right? The chocolate melts in your mouth, the cookie is perfectly soft, and it definitely helps that this cookie is stuffed full of real, whole ingredients. No regrets eating the entire thing in one sitting…
