Write a review
  1. 2 large, ripe bananas
  2. 1¼ cups rolled oats
  3. 1⁄3 cup raisins
  4. 1⁄3 cup vegan dark chocolate chips
  1. Preheat the oven 375 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
  2. Put the bananas in a medium-sized bowl and mash with a potato masher or large fork until smooth. Add the oats, raisins and chocolate chips; stir to combine.
  3. Using a cookie scoop or large spoon, drop a heaping tablespoonful of the cookie batter onto the lined baking sheet, gently flattening it with a rubber spatula or clean fingertips. Continue in this manner with the remaining cookie dough.
  4. Bake for 13 to 17 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and cookies are almost set. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, cookies will keep for about 3 days.

    I’m not sure exactly how often I use a cookbook, but I’d say several times a week. I use them especially if I need to be precise with a recipe, like with baking.

  • Michelle November 12, 2015, 2:49 pm

    I cook from a book at least 3 times per week because I love incorporating new meals into my regular rotation.

  • Michelle November 12, 2015, 7:34 pm

    I use a cookbook once or twice a week, I also use recipes from blogs. I’d love to have this book for my cousin who needs easy vegan meals!

  • sarah November 12, 2015, 8:46 pm

    almost never

  • Terri Cole November 12, 2015, 9:06 pm

    I probably cook from a book once or twice a week. I don’t have any of Laura’s books but I enjoy her public television show. Thanks for the chance to win a copy!

  • Marty C. November 13, 2015, 12:14 pm

    I look up recipes online more often these days than reaching for a cookbook, but there are a few cookbooks that are like old friends, like my mom’s beat-up, food-crusted copy of The Vegetarian Epicure from the 70’s.

  • Sherry November 14, 2015, 8:59 pm

    Laura’s recipes are always delicious and the prep is easy. I have all her previous cookbooks. I can’t wait to try these cookies.

  • Nancy November 16, 2015, 2:16 pm

    I look at my cookbooks at least five times a week.
    I also look on-line for ideas.

  • Angela C. November 16, 2015, 3:42 pm

    I cook from a cookbook about 50% of the time and the other 50% I use recipes I find online, I like that you can read other peoples reviews.

  • Judith Marke November 17, 2015, 4:17 am

    I almost always cook from a recipe because I want what I’m taking my time to make…to turn out great! Not having time to experiment on my own, I always turn to an ever increasing assortment of great cook’s books to guarantee my success. I just need more time and more bookshelves…love my cookbooks!

  • Shari November 17, 2015, 9:07 am

    I cook from a cookbook a few times a week. I love cookbooks and devour them like a great novel!

  • Sarah Wozniak November 17, 2015, 1:05 pm

    I use a cookbook at least once a week.

  • Jennifer November 17, 2015, 2:25 pm

    I am a cookbook junkie. I love to buy them and read them like they are novels. I probably don’t use them as much as I should. I tend to go to the internet first when I need a recipe real quick. So I’d say I use them about 30% of the time.

  • Georgina November 17, 2015, 3:27 pm

    I always use a cookbook, even to double check recipes I make often. So I use a cookbook about 3-4 times a week.

  • Kathleen November 17, 2015, 4:19 pm

    The cookies don’t excite me much, but the other recipes do.

  • Katie November 17, 2015, 10:11 pm

    I try to cook from a cookbook at least 1-2 times per week.

  • DJ November 18, 2015, 5:59 am

    I would say, several times a week, because I love trying new recipes.
