Vegan Cookie Recipe – Only 2 Ingredients

Vegan cookie recipe with only 2 ingredients

Vegan cookie recipe with only 2 ingredients.

One of the things we missed after going vegan was cookies. I mean, without milk, eggs and milk chocolate, it is impossible to make good cookies right? Wrong! Thanks to the Burlap Bag, we found an awesome and simple vegan cookie recipe made with only two ingredients and then whatever mix-ins you want to add to have the cookies suit your (or your kids) tastes.

So, how the heck can you make a cookie out of only two ingredients? And you can’t cheat and use a cookie mix that has 10 ingredients and count it as one ;) .

Well, it is as simple as bananas and oats. That is it. Here’s the recipe.

Vegan Cookie Recipe – Only 2 Ingredients
Prep time

Cook time

Total time


2 ingredient vegan, gluten-free cookies
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4

  • 3 bananas
  • 1½ cups (gluten-free) oats

Optional Mix-ins
  • Chocolate chips
  • Walnuts
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla
  • Peanut Butter
  • Cranberries
  • Anything you think would be good!

  1. Peel the bananas and put them in a bowl
  2. Add the oats
  3. Mash up the bananas and oats together
  4. Add your mix-ins
  5. Spoon out in balls and place on a greased cookie sheet
  6. Bake on 350 degrees for 15 minutes

You can use regular or quick oats. However, if you use regular oats, we suggest blending them oh so briefly in your blender or food processor to convert them into quick oats. Also, if you want the cookies to be gluten-free, use gluten-free oats. All banana sizes are different, so if the mixture seems too mushy or thick, just adjust the amount of oats you put in.

We have found that the above recipe makes about 16 cookies. It just depends on how big your bananas are and how large you make the cookies.

The cookies are a great snack or dessert. However, they are also a great breakfast. Wait… cookies for breakfast, really? Yes, really. If you ate 4 cookies, you would have eaten about 3/4 a banana and just shy of a half a cup of oats. Combine that with whatever mix-ins you used, like walnuts, cinnamon and vanilla, and that is a completely legitimate, and healthy, breakfast!

These cookies have become a staple in our house. Our favorite mix-ins are walnuts, vanilla, cinnamon and chocolate chips. We make them all the time, but, unfortunately, they only last about 2 days as they are just so dog-gone delicious!

Let us know what you think of them and what mix-ins you have used to make them even better!
