I really think the problem with most healthy cookies is the lack of oil.  I love some “muffin top” type cookies that are soft and fluffy and like muffins and I’ve successfully made some of those that are really good with very minimal added fat.  Unfortunately, your average cookie needs something more.  And with these cookies, it’s not too much.  You don’t feel weighed down after eating a couple of these like you do with traditional cookies.  It’s only a few tablespoons(plus the peanut butter) for a big batch of cookies.  A pretty fair amount for some super yummy cookies, I think Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chunk Cookies  You could even substitute some dried fruit for the chocolate chips if you really wanted to.  And the original recipe had no added maple syrup so I’m sure you could leave it out(and add another tbsp of oil) and they would still be fantastic Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chunk CookiesSo I went a little crazy with the picture taking for these.  Seriously?  I brought out a coconut and a banana(and hid that picture at the bottom, haha).  I’m not sure what I was thinking(who thinks a brown hairy coconut looks attractive anyways?) but the picture was clear so I added it.  Oh well.  I had no idea cookies were so photogenic, but these ones were for sure.  And not just photogenic.  So yummy!  My husband doesn’t like banana baked into anything, but excluding him, everyone in the house absolutely loved them.  And by everyone I mean myself and the two kids.  They didn’t last long enough to share with anyone else Vegan Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chunk Cookies
