  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 1-1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix until fully combined. Wet your hands and form into eight balls. Place at least one inch apart on the prepared pan. Flatten the balls with your hands or the back of a fork until they are approximately 1/2 inch thick.
  3. Bake for 12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a cookie comes out clean.
