Before baking


You will notice that it is far from the basic recipe I have used.

  • I added sugar and vegan butter to make the cookies more crispy.
  • I added instant coffee to make the  banana flavor less dominant.
  • I added cinnamon and vanilla to compliment the chocolate chips.


After baking

This recipe is:

  • vegan
  • gluten free
  • make it sugar free by omitting the sugar, and using sugar free chocolate chips or by adding nuts/dried fruits instead.
