vegan banana and peanut butter cookies

-Antoine jolicoeur desroches

"This is a recipe I do quite often. It’s great as a snack, as a dessert or even as breakfast. I’m a big fan of cookies so I always want to make some. I created this recipe by using some of the ingredients I always have around in my kitchen. It’s really easy and simple to do so if I just finished a big training day. I can start preheating my oven right away and I’ll have freshly baked cookies in less than 20 minutes!"
