2-Ingredient Banana Coconut Cookies (Whole30, grain/gluten-free, nut free, egg-free)

These 2-Ingredient Banana Coconut Cookies are the ultimate simple treat. They contain no gluten, grains, dairy, eggs, nuts or added sugar, and are so quick and easy to make (requiring only a bowl, a spoon, and a baking pan). 

I saw some two ingredient cookies on Instagram, then on Tumblr. I didn’t see THESE two ingredient cookies, let’s be clear, I saw banana and oatmeal cookies.

That banana and oatmeal version, which inspired my banana coconut cookies, seems to be common on vegan food blogs but I thought, when I saw them, that coconut would work just as well. I was right!

So here they are. Cookies made with truly just two ingredients (of course, you may add other things if you prefer)!

2 Ingredient Banana Coconut Cookies (grain/gluten-free, nut free, egg-free)

These are the perfect thing when you a cookie, but don’t want the complication of mixing flour, butter, eggs, baking soda, and more. Plus, these 2 Ingredient Banana Coconut Cookies have the fact going for them that banana and coconut is an A+ flavor combination. Just throw the two ingredients together and let the magic of the oven do its work.

Let’s get baking!

P.S. These are kid-tested, and kid-approved. My niece and nephew (aged 3 and 5, respectively) enjoy these every time they visit my parents, since my mother makes these for my father regularly! Although I suspect they think they’re eating a biscuit. The key is not to call them “cookies” in front of any child that eats Toll House, etc. on the regular, because they’ll be disappointed. But a sweet, healthy, keep-the-munchies-at-bay snack? This recipe delivers.

Phil September 10, 2016 - 5:15 pm

To figure calories add calories in 1 banana (about 105) + 3/4 cup coconut (listed on the bag) and divide by the number of cookies. If the serving size of coconut is in tbsp, there’s 12 tbsp in 3/4 cup. My estimate is about 650 in the recipe.

AIP Mess May 19, 2016 - 7:14 pm

I calculated out somewhere between 130-150 calories per cookie depending on the size of banana used. SO good and I’m happy that there’s an option for us strict AIP’ers out there 😀

Thanks for calculating!

Vicku October 1, 2016 - 7:05 pm

2 tablespoons of unsweetened coconut is 110 calories
So 12 tablespoons is 660 cal.
Add 105 cal per banana total is 765 cal using one banana

Luanna August 7, 2014 - 12:13 am

Excited to try these. Do they have to be brown/super-ripe bananas or just regular ripe? I have a ton of brown ones in the freezer.

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor August 7, 2014 - 12:25 am

Regular is what I used. If you use very brown, the cookies may be looser (not the tidy discs in the picture). They’ll be sweeter, though!

Reply
Diane B September 14, 2015 - 11:43 pm

I loved these so much the first time that I’m making a double batch right now! I had one really ripe banana and one regular so, hopefully, they should be sweet and hold together. I also added a tablespoon of peanut butter – I have an addiction to the stuff! I’ll let you know how they came out.

Unsweetened coconut, and you could probably get away with mashing by hand and then stirring in the coconut…

Oh no! Was your banana very ripe?

Reply
Helene August 13, 2014 - 10:47 pm

It was medium ripe. I was trying to use them up before they all spoiled. Do you think this could be the reason?

Reply
Grok Grub August 13, 2014 - 11:00 pm

Maybe! More likely that your oven cooks unevenly, but if this isn’t a problem that you’ve experienced baking other things, then I’m stumped. I’ve made this twice and seen a few other folks make as well without issue. :'(

Wow, a lot of comments. I just made these using riper bananas. There was no problem with the bottoms burning, perhaps because I put them on a higher rack in the oven. They are good and a lot like macaroons but they have a subtle flavor that is a bit odd. It may be I am not used to cooked banana and using the firmer, fresher bananas will be better. However, one little cookie was not enough. Five more were just about right. This recipe is easy, easy. So easy that everyone should make them and experiment with some of the additions. I’m eager to try a tiny bit of ground almonds or a pinch of salt. Be careful. This seems like a flavor that is easily whacked the wrong way. Quite a tasty little treat if you need something quick and homemade. I have a friend who is waiting to try these.

Reply
Grok Grub September 10, 2014 - 5:57 pm

Try it again with firmer bananas, it cuts down on the baked banana flavor if you’re not a fan!

Reply
Candace Cee September 28, 2014 - 6:29 pm

Made these cookies again using less ripe bananas – the taste was much better as you thought! I feared the banana would be hard to mix by hand but when I added the coconut the banana seemed to liquify. I also used a small scoop for a nice little half ball shape. Wunderbar! These were baked for the hubby who has to work an extra day this week. He and the co workeres liked the last batch. He’s going to really love these!!

There are so many comments, I thought I would just sneak my question in here. Have you tried frozen bananas? I would thaw them obviously, but I have a bunch of bananas in my freezer and wanted to make something other than banana bread this time.

Would they work, or turn out too mushy?

Reply
Fresh Planet Flavor October 8, 2016 - 1:45 am

I think it would work! Cookies will be darker in color, and you’ll need to up the amount of coconut because I think the thawed bananas will be incredibly mushy. Add coconut until the dough is not soupy any more…

I seriously have to agree with you about those 2-3 ingredient things that are constructed from a box mix and the commercial pie filling as “2-3 ingredients”. Not. While I don’t eat desserts often (I’ve excised most of my “sweet tooth”), somehow, I always, always love trying out things made from real ingredients, dessert or otherwise. These cookies look impressively YUM, and are definitely on my radar. I am going to put them on my list to make the next time we have an office party (where sweets seem always to be expected — at least these will be healthy ones! Thanks.

Well, this recipe is somewhat forgiving of inexact measurements. But 1 banana = ~1/3 cup mashed banana, or ~1/3 lbs. Hope this helps!

They’ll be firmer and less sweet, I’d think. If you’re okay with that… then worth a try!

These are perfect-thank you! I am on the autoimmune protocol and was wondering if there is a way to add an AIP friendly protein to make these breakfast cookies for the days that I need to prepare something the night before? I am no baker (or chef for that matter) and would love suggestions on how to make these with gelatin or collagen? Thank you so much!

Reply
Grok Grub April 6, 2015 - 9:05 pm

I’m sure you could stir in some gelatin for nutritional value (although the cookies do not require it structurally).

Prior to paleo, I tried the oatmeal version and was unimpressed. After I went paleo, I tried these and thought they were pretty good. I occasionally added a few Enjoy Life mini chips on top. Now that I am autoimmune paleo, these stand in nicely for a cookie, and are surprisingly satisfying when I need something sweet, but I also don’t feel guilty eating a couple with breakfast. I usually add a little alcohol-free vanilla extract and cinnamon. Sometimes I add some carob powder for a chocolate flavor. Thanks for this recipe!

Meh. I guess these are alright if you are used to a “real food” only diet, but I wouldn’t take them to the church picnic or family reunion. I don’t think they’d appeal to the masses. They definitely need some cinnamon or a bit of something sweet – they taste plain and have a weird consistency.

Definitely worth a try! Mash up the banana first, then gradually add in the coconut flour… being careful not to add too much (as coconut flour soaked up moisture with a slight delay).

Hi 🙂 I really am loving this recipe and want to try it to make it for family I’m visiting in India! This’ll be perfect for them since they follow many dietary restrictions (no eggs, added sugar, etc). However, I think I only have fresh coconut available to me here and am concerned that if I add freshly grated coconut there’ll be too much moisture in the batter… Maybe if I add some ground almonds or oats? What do you think? I’m also considering adding some chai tea spice mix to spice it up for my family’s palate. Do you think that the flavor would meld well with the baked banana and coconut? Thanks so much!!!

I made these with just banana & coconut, & while I liked the texture, I was hoping for a bit more flavor (they were wonderful topped with a dollop of strawberry jam). So the next batch, I added a tablespoon of almond butter, a scoop of vanilla protein powder, & a tsp of stevia. They turned out quite well, even with all of my tweaking. I know I took away from the whole 2 ingredient thing, but I do enjoy tinkering with recipes. I saw someone else’s suggestion of cocoa powder & I think I may try that next. I think this is a great recipe & lends itself well to different add-ins. Thanks!

I made these today with riper (but not over ripe) banana and Great Value organic shredded coconut. I found that the texture came out a lot more chunky than shown in the pictures above and that the cookies were not baked even after 35 minutes, when the edges and bottom started to burn but the middle was still soggy. I think I would try a less ripe banana and a very finely shredded coconut such as Bob’s Red Mill next time. Hoping for better results the second time around.

I added a touch of cinnamon and I’m absolutely obsessed. I had to stop myself from eating the entire batch after I took them out of the oven. I made mine pretty thin (9 cookies) which allowed them to brown and get a little crispy around the edges…..YUM

I made half the batch just as you described then I made the other half with a sprinkle of cinnamon and some raisins. Oh boy, they’re both great.
