Even better, these vegan chocolate chip banana squares are oil free. The bananas add so much moisture there is no need for any oils at all. The bananas also add a lot of sweetness so this certainly isn’t my most sugar-packed recipe. (Vegan soft frosted sugar cookies anyone)? A healthier dessert that tastes this good? I’m in. I just love when a recipe turns out so simple and so delicious!
