Vegan Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies

I’ve raved about the Mrs. Fields Cookie Book here before. It’s my first stop when I’m trying to find a cookie recipe and as I’ve gotten more comfortable in the kitchen over the years, some of the recipes in it have also become my base for baking experiments.

This recipe is one such experiment! I needed a simple vegan cookie recipe and have found that bananas are a great replacement for eggs (1 banana = 1 egg). These turned out really soft and delicious, and we’ve eaten through them in no time.
