Chunky Monkey Cookies (Vegan, Oil-Free, Sugar-Free)

These Chunky Monkey Cookies are not only vegan, but also oil-free and sugar-free. But you wouldn’t notice that because they are fudgy, perfectly sweet and a real flavor explosion in your mouth. Banana, chocolate, walnuts, peanut butter… you’ll love those!

I never had cookies like these before and I bet you haven’t either! They are super soft and fudgy. Almost too fudgy? Is this a thing? I don’t think so.

The cookies are made without eggs, dairy, sugar or oil. Instead, I’ve used bananas (very ripe ones because they are the sweetest), almond milk, flour, baking powder and of course the add-ins to make these cookies into Chunky Monkey Cookies.

The add-ins for the Chunky Monkey Cookies:

  • chocolate chunks
  • chopped walnuts
  • blobs of peanut butter
  • and lots of bananas! And I don’t mean banana extract or flavoring. I mean real bananas!

And yes, I’ve been inspired for those by the Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream that is one of the vegan flavors!

Chunky Monkey Cookies (Vegan, Oil-Free, Sugar-Free)

These cookies are great to give to friends, family, and co-workers. The easiest way to make someone like you is to bake them cookies ;)

The combination of peanut butter, chocolate and bananas is a classic one. Who doesn’t love that combo?!

Actually what I find most spectacular about these cookies is that they are sugar-free and oil-free (don’t mind the add-ins). Healthy never tasted that good!

These are great. Just made using whole wheat flour, adding tbsp hemp & flax meal. Cooked a good 20 mins until underneath brown, even my husband enjoyed them. Thank you.

I put mine in the oven for 15 mins at 350 degrees and it came out doughy. I put them back in the oven for an additonal 15 mins to get the dough to develop a cookie texture. If this is your first time making this recipe I recommend setting a timer on your phone and cooking them in batches with different time intervals. I did a batch for 15 mins then a batch at 25 mins and then a batch at 30 mins. 30 mins is just right for the texture!

Are these cookies? Not really. Are they good? Absolutely! I recently decided to do a low sugar diet bc I have a horrible sweet tooth. Was craving cookies and this kinda works! They’re not quite what I was expecting but they’re yummy nonetheless!

Can these be made into simple choco chip cookies sans the peanut butter?
