Sometimes the recipes that I’m skeptical about, surprise me the most- when a recipe seems this simple it’s almost hard to believe! I was in a bind and needed a quick treat, so I gave this one a try… I can’t believe how quick & tasty these were!
Let me do a little forewarning- I pinned this recipe (below), but went off the recipe listed in the pin text not the original recipe (found here). So, credit is due to the original author, although apparently mine was a modification by someone else’s modification? Either way, this recipe gets mad props!
It is SO easy. Pretty much, as easy as it gets!
I am not a raw foods girl, but these would be a great recipe if you were eating only raw! Otherwise? Bake away!

Raw/Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls
(Original recipe found here)
2 ripe bananas
1 C. oats
1/2 C. chocolate chips
1 heaping spoonful of natural peanut butter
Mix well & plop spoonfuls onto baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
I used frozen bananas that were past their counter-life. Just grab out of the freezer, peel, and throw in the mixer. Also, the recipe calls for quick oats but I used regular oats; they reminded me a bit of no-bake cookies since the oats were larger- but still so good! Lastly, I used regular chocolate chips instead of vegan chips.
The raw dough was good, but tasted too banana-y for my liking (if a banana even hints at showing some brown, into the freezer it goes! I’m not a ripe-banana-eating person! 🙂
Once they were baked, I was shocked how good they were! The milk chocolate chips helped add sweetness… I can’t believe these held together so well, and tasted so awesome!
