Sugar-Free Vegan Peanut Butter, Oatmeal and Banana Cookies

Category: Desserts - Cookies

Suitable for a: vegan diet




1/3 cup peanut butter

2 ripe bananas (overripe is fine)

1 tsp vanilla

2 tbsp soy milk

2 tbsp maple syrup (optional)

2 ½ cups quick cooking or rolled oatmeal

dash cinnamon (optional)

1/4 cup flour




In a large bowl, mash bananas with a fork until smooth. Add peanut butter, soy milk, vanilla and maple syrup and mix well. Add remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.

Drop spoonfuls of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake 13-16 minutes at 350 degrees, or until done.

Note: This recipe is only truly sugar-free if you used unsweetened peanut butter and unsweetened soymilk, so read the ingredients list and look for soy milk that says "Unsweetened" right on the label.

Additional comments:


I got this from When I found it, it seemed to be exactly for what I was looking when I began playing with the oatmeal cookie recipe that Michael submitted. I didn't add the peanut butter, as the naturaly stuff I have from Whole Foods wasn't smooth enough (I didn't feel like dealing with it, even though it had already been sitting out for a few hours) and I certainly wasn't going to use my husband's stuff with the corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup. I only used a half cup of oats per batch since any more seemed like too much. The cookies are doughy, but I like them that way and they're good with my Smart Source spread. I also omitted the vanilla as I realized I didn't have any after I started mixing them. I'm sure that they would taste better with it. They kinda taste like a cross between banana oatmeal and banana bread. Yummy.

I just made these. They are very good, but you can tell there isn't sugar in them! I'll probably play with the recipe and tweak it out. Maybe applesauce and baking soda could be added to the mix to make them more cookie-like. Right now, it's more like balls of banana-oat "bread."

I remember when I made them, they definately weren't potluck quality. However, I think I might play with them again, especially since I have an abundance of counter space to actually bake. Also, my husband now eats my natural PB, though I've happened to be buying the PB with sugar. (Skippy, mostly, but the jar I have in the fridge now is Manatha, becasue it was on sale for $2.50 and I had some coupons for $1 off that doubled. I had three coupons, so I bought three jars.)

Too bad I don't have any bananas. I have the time and I'm in the mood to bake. Sigh.

I wanted to play with this one again, but my husband ate one of the two bananas I was saving for it. I wasn't upset, though. I'm just happy that he's eating fruits and veggies as actual snacks and meals now.

I still have one, but I think I'll just throw it in the blender today with some apple and grapes, soy milk and Tofutti and see what happens.

I made these with some substitutions. I used about 3 tbs. chocolate almond milk instead of soy milk, and used half flour, half cocoa powder. I also used finger bananas instead of regular bananas. I sed slightly less oats to make them less bready and more cookie-like. They're amazing and don't taste low-fat/virtually refined sugar free at all!

I made these, and they definitely taste like little mounds of oatmeal banana bread. If I were to make them again, I'd add a little more peanut butter, because I can only taste hints of it in some of the cookies; the banana flavor really overtakes them.

Wow I might make these for thanksgiving. Just fyi the title is misleading since Maple Syrup had sugar in it and Bananas have sugar in them lolz.

Sorry I'm just being stupid.

{formerly Down_to_Earth... Yes, I get the pun.

I like the idea of chocolate peanut butter. Yummy. If I ever have time to play with the recipe again, I'll will try the cocoa powder and the chocolate soy milk. However, I have a 15-month-old daugther now and I don't have time to go potty any more. (She doesn't stay still.)
