If you are on the hunt for the elusive sugar-free and vegan dessert, look no further than these cookies. These sugar-free chocolate chip cookies are made with natural brown rice syrup. The syrup provides a sweet taste to the cookies. Since they are completely egg-free and dairy-free, that makes these cookies 100 percent vegan.

If you don't normally bake vegan and sugar-free foods, you'll likely need to shop for brown rice syrup and sugar-free chocolate chips. These can likely be found at a natural foods store. The cookies do contain brown rice syrup, but they're refined sugar-free and safe for vegans avoiding processed sugar and bone char. This recipe calls for one mashed banana. Browning bananas mash best (as you may know from making banana bread). If you don't have a brown banana ready, you can always microwave a ripe banana for about 30 seconds. The heat from the microwave will soften it, making it easier to mash. Finally, the recipe calls for soy milk. Feel free to use any milk substitute instead.

If this recipe has sparked your interest in a sugar-free cookie, great! There are lots more sugar-free cookie recipes to add to your regular baking rotation. If these cookies are going to be part of a bake sale or cookie exchange, be sure to label them as sugar-free and vegan so those that care know they are safe to eat.


  • 1 banana (mashed)
  • 3/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1/4 cup soy milk
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups sugar-free vegan dark chocolate chips

Steps to Make It

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Combine the banana, brown rice syrup, soy milk, and vegetable oil. Whisk the mixture until well combined.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Add this dry mixture to the banana mixture, stirring well to combine.

  3. Gently fold in chocolate chips.

  4. Drop the cookies using teaspoons onto a baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly golden brown.

Cool the cookies on a cooling rack and serve once cool. The cookies can be stored in a sealed container on the countertop for 4 to 5 days.
