This quick and easy vegan and gluten free chunky monkey cookies recipe will have the whole family going bananas! They are healthy enough for breakfast but they taste indulgent enough for dessert. The consistency is soft and fluffy, similar to a banana bread texture. I love these gluten free chunky monkey cookies warm, straight from the oven, but they’re also absolutely delicious chilled from the refrigerator or freezer.
