Ingredients

  • 2 Bananas pureed
  • 1 1/2 cups 300g Vegan Chocolate Chips 3/4 of a cup (150g of those chocolate chips melted)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3/4 of a teaspoon Mint or Peppermint extract
  • 6 tablespoons Vegan Butter or Coconut Oil melted 80 g
  • 1 1/2 cups 190g Whole Wheat Flour or All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2/3 of a cup Whole Cane Sugar or Sucanat 120g (alternatively use 1 cup granulated sugar)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Powdered sugar Not all powdered sugars are vegan. This is!

Instructions

  1. Puree Banana and mix together with melted chocolate chips, vanilla extract, melted butter, and peppermint extract.
  2. Sift together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Using a wooden spoon, stir together with chocolate banana mixture. Mix in remaining (not melted!) chocolate chips, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in fridge for at least an hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C).
  4. Roll dough into tablespoon sized balls, roll in powdered sugar, and place on a cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes.Cookies should be slightly underbaked.
  6. Remove cookies from the oven and allow them to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack.

Recipe Notes

1.) The longer you let the dough chill the better. Don't attempt to make these cookies without chilling. You won't get that crinkle cookie effect. I like letting the dough chill overnight but an hour will work too if you refrigerator is cold.
