4-Ingredient Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients
Bananas: You will need 2 ripe bananas for the binding agent in these no-bake cookies.

How to make Easy No-Bake Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
Start by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat, set aside.
In a medium size bowl, mash the ripe bananas well using a fork or potato masher. Then, add in the oats and stir to combine.
After that, add in the peanut butter and stir again to combine well. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips to distribute them well throughout the mixture.
Proceed to scoop the cookie dough by the rounded spoonful’s onto the prepared baking sheet.
If you are going to enjoy these cookies raw, I suggest putting them in the refrigerator to chill and set for 1-2 hours.
If you prefer to enjoy these cookies baked, get your oven preheated to 350 degrees F and then bake them for 15 minutes. Let them cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
CAN THIS RECIPE ALSO BE GLUTEN FREE?
This recipe is vegan free but if you are trying to make it gluten allergy friendly then make sure to use oats that are certified as gluten free. Some oats are grown on fields where wheat is also grown and can lead to cross contamination, so certified oats are a much safer choice when it comes to allergies.
CAN I FREEZE RAW VEGAN COOKIE DOUGH?
Yes, you can freeze cookie dough balls in an airtight container for up to 3 months. I recommend laying a piece of parchment paper between the dough balls to help prevent them from sticking.
Which oats are best for no bake cookies?
Different recipes will call for different kinds of oats, but to make the best No Bake Cookies, you should use quick cooking oats. Using different kinds of oats will change the texture of the cookies, and they may not set up quite right. As this recipe’s main ingredient, it’s important to get the right kind of oats.
DO NO BAKE COOKIES NEED TO BE REFRIGERATED?
Putting No Bakes in the fridge will help the cookies to hold a firmer shape. They also will last longer if you keep them in the fridge. However, they technically don’t need to be refrigerated. You can store them in an airtight container in room temperature and they will be fine.
