Indulge the healthy way with our delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Vegan Protein Cookies recipe!
Healthy eating is all about finding balance. Sometimes that means saying no to deprivation and yes to cookies. Healthy vegan protein cookies to be exact.
The trick to staying healthy while still being able to enjoy the occasional treat or dessert is in making healthy swaps. So today, we’re giving you a healthier swap for chocolate chip cookies!
We took all the goodness of grandma’s oatmeal chocolate cookies, swapped out the sugar for a banana, and added a boost of protein to leave you feel satisfied and full.
You can take these cookies to work, or even grab one as a post work-out snack. They’re also a great option for on-the go activities like hiking or camping.
We used Organika® Vege-Pro plant based protein to help energize whatever adventures you may take. Vegan-friendly, and easily made gluten free, these healthy protein cookies are sure to be a crowd pleaser!

How to make a chia egg:
Chia eggs are a gelatinous mixture that can be used to replace an egg in baking. It’s rich in fiber and calcium and it’s totally vegan. All you need is 1 tbsp of chia seeds and 3 tbsp of water. Mix the two ingredients in a small bowl. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes or until it becomes a gel-like mix, and voila! You’re done! This gelly mixture will help bind your vegan baked goods just like an egg normally would!
