The Best Gluten-free and Vegan Cookie Recipe:

Let’s face it, it is really hard to make good gluten-free and vegan cookies. Getting the egg substitute to work (this recipe used ripe banana) is sometimes a challenge. What is unique about these cookies is using coconut oil and putting the cookies in the fridge for 30 min before scooping onto baking sheet. This will ensure they are formed and bake evenly.

These gluten-free and vegan cookies are really easy to make and you only need 11 ingredients! Even though they are “free” of everything…they are surprisingly delicious and quite addicting!
