Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Cookies!!!  This is what happens when two of my favorites come together.  If you like banana bread and chocolate chip cookies as much as I do, you will love these soft-baked macro-friendly goodies!  I def recommend you eat them warm.  The sweet, melty chocolate and fluffy texture are everything!!

I have been working on a couple different protein cookie recipes.  Chocolate chip is naturally one the first flavors that comes to mind since I lived to lick the bowl when my mom made a batch for us kids back in the day.  Today, I add chocolate chips to my oatmeal and everything else I can get away with!  In fact, adding chocolate chips to my banana bread recipe is already a big hit, but I have never made the cookie counterpart before.  I’m so glad I did!  If you bake a batch of these babies, please tag me @lafemmevegan

Tru Supplements Banana Maple Muffin protein powder from their Dessert Line inspired me to create this combo.  The flavor is a game changer!  Sure, you could make these with any plant-based protein powder, but if you’re ready to level up your cookie game, I highly suggest you use this one.  Tru’s dessert line is a crowd favorite anyway.  It’s delicious mixed into oatmeal and tastes great even as a plain shake with water.

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop Tru Supplements Banana Maple Muffin protein powder
  • 2 Tb Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour
  • 1 Tb Truvia Brown Sugar Stevia Blend
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Pumpkin Spice
  • 1/2 c Unsweetened Applesuace
  • 1 Tb Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer mixed with 2 Tb warm water
  • 1 Tb Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Makes 6 servings

Macros per serving 6p/2f/10c

Pre-heat your oven at 350 degrees.  Set aside the chocolate chips.  Then start putting things together by making your flax egg (or egg replacer) in a mixing bowl.  While it’s setting for a couple of minutes, mix all of the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.  Go ahead and add the rest of the wet ingredients into your main bowl with the vegan egg mixture.  Then add your dry ingredients to the batter a little at a time until everything is well combined, but be careful not to over mix the, or your cookies won’t rise as well.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Form the dough into 6 equal-size balls.  Set them on the baking sheet and press down a bit with the palm of your hand to flatten the surface.  Then add an even amount of chocolate chips onto the top of each cookie.  Press them into the dough a little because the cookies will fluff up as they bake.  Place in the oven to cook for 18-20 minutes.
